Dear Parent/Guardian,

Wishing our School Family a Happy, Healthy and Holy New Year

From all at St. Gabriel’s Primary.

FREE Breakfast Club

As you know we operate a free breakfast club from 8:10 – 8:40am each morning. Given the amount of interest shown in signing up we were able to set up a breakfast club with 85 places.

However, a number of pupils have not taken up their places and we have a situation where if we don’t have the numbers a cap will be set at 55 pupils. This will mean a waiting list will become necessary.

To avoid this, if you want your breakfast club place, make sure that it is used.


Healthy Living Week

This week has been a whole school theme work, centred around Healthy Living – mentally and physically. Our pupils have had a wide range of experiences and we ended in a whole school assembly this afternoon with each class celebrating their highlights.


New Year Plans – Paperless Plans

Following discussion in Parent Forum ‘Coffee and Catch Up’ sessions, we are moving towards going paperless which means letters will be emailed via parent pay and links to letters on our school website texted via our messaging service.

The first step of this process is to ensure that your chosen contact details (mobile telephone and email) are up to date.

If you wish to update your phone number or address, there is a blue form in the entrance foyer.

If you wish to update your email used on parentpay, please do this via your parentpay settings.



It’s a new year so why not make high attendance a New Year’s Resolution!
