Week Commencing 5th November 2018

Welcome back, I trust that you have had an enjoyable half term.

During the half term break the dryers have been on constantly drying out the school following our flood. The school is nearly dry and we will be having new carpets fitted once the company dealing with the drying are happy with the state of the floors. Parts of the school will remain closed for the time being but we will continue to be safely operating as previously.

It seems incredible that we are now in the half term run up to Christmas.

This week we have our Hockey team playing at Cannock on Wednesday 7th November.

On Thursday Mr Salt will be attending the RE Cluster meeting at St Gregory’s School.

On Friday we are pleased to welcome Brother Sassi, Ms Maguire and other representatives from the Trustees in to school. Brother Sassi will take the opportunity to tour the school and see the staff and children at work. We look forward to welcoming them.

Mr Hood will be attending Safeguarding training on Friday. Just a reminder that our ‘Peace Garden’ will be open on 12th November. Every child has made a poppy which will be displayed; this has been part of the work we have achieved as we have talked thought and prayed about the actions of War as we remember those in the First World War and other conflicts. Our main focus has been on Peace.
We invite parents and a guest to come and take a quiet moment to view out ‘Peace Garden’, then join us for coffee and a tour of the school at work on Monday 12th November 9-11am.

‘Every day is an Open Day’, please make an appointment to view the school.
