Dear Parent / Guardian,

We are looking forward to welcoming everyone back to school again in September. We have stated our ‘provisional’ start of term dates which are set out below. The Government will be making a further announcement about reopening later on in the school holidays and we will post any updates here.

September Start Date (provisional):

Year 6,5,4, and 3 will start school on Wednesday 2nd September

Year 2 and Year 1 will start school on Thursday 3rd September

Reception and Nursery classes: parents notified separately.

Please note the start date is provisional, so please refer to the website towards the end of August.

In September we will expect all children to return to school in full school uniform and PE kit. Please make sure that you have these ready in good time.

School uniform can be purchased at school on Tuesday 25th August between 10- 12midday. Please make a note of this arrangement.

We hope that you will make good use of the Summer Holiday Workpacks that were made available to everyone and make use of them to get prepared and ready for school.

Class Teachers for September: Year 6 – Ms Senensieb; Year 5 – Ms Brunning; Year 4 - Mr Phillips; Year 3 – Ms Hassett; Year 2 – Mrs Jayawardhana; Year 1 – Ms Reyes; Reception  - Ms Bonnici; Nursery – Mrs Barker.

Mass attendance:

Fr Jack advises us to make use of any of the Mass times that are available during the week and not just Sunday, for now. Try to attend one Mass in person with your family soon. It is time to return to our spiritual home in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. Please click on the parish website link to get up to date Mass times.

Have a safe Summer and, with the help of God, we will see you all again in September.
