Dear Parents,                    


I am sorry for any inconvenience caused by the closure of the school on Friday. The decision was based on the health and safety of the pupils and staff as well as our capacity to fully staff the school. I hope that you managed to take advantage of the time to have some fun with your children in the snow.


School Development Survey

We will shortly be sending home a survey to seek your opinions and ideas on how we can further develop the Catholic life of the school. Your opinions together with the opinions of staff, children and governors will help us to build an action plan and ensure that we are taking every opportunity to put our faith in to action.


School Uniform

This is a gentle reminder to ask you to ensure that your child is wearing the correct school uniform and has a sensible hairstyle – no shavings, no colour and long hair tied back. Our children are always being complimented on how smart they look and this comes from parents and staff having high expectations and insisting on the uniform policy being adhered to.


School Nurses

The school nurses were in this week for their first drop-in session. They will be in again on Monday 30th April from 9-11am. If you would like to book a 20 minute slot to discuss any aspect of your child’s health, then please ask at the office.


Good Friday

There will be a children’s Stations of the Cross service at the Cathedral on Good Friday at 12 0’Clock. It will be led by children from St John’s and I would encourage you to attend.


School Dinners

If your child has school dinners, please register on the ‘Feeding Hungry Minds’ website so that you can pre-order dinners as well as make online payments. If you are having any difficulty registering or using the service, then let the office know and we can offer advice or contact ISS directly: Telephone: 01924 792 334 (available from 8am until 4.30pm – Monday to Friday) or Email:


Thank you for your continued support.


Yours sincerely,

L. Park

Head Teacher
