Dear Parents and Carers,


School – Parish Links

Many thanks to Father Robert for celebrating such a lovely and personal Mass for our school enabling our classes to focus on the Patronal Feast of St. Gabriel. We were very proud of all our pupils including those from a range of year groups who undertook readings, were part of the offertory procession and also served on the altar.  We would also like to thank the number of parents and wider family members that were able to attend this special school Mass.


To undertake classes for the Sacrament of Holy Communion, forms are available after church for all pupils in Year 3 or above. Please see the Church newsletter for further details.


Please be Aware –Supervision

It has been brought to our attention that there have been a few issues between pupils after school whilst they are waiting for the staggered dismissal of their older siblings. Please could we ask for your attentiveness in ensuring children are supervised once teachers have dismissed their pupils into parents’ or carers’ charge. We thank you for your continued support.
