Dear Parents,


Welcome back and I hope that you had a lovely half term break. We now enter the last half term of the academic year which I hope will be filled with exciting opportunities and plenty of sunshine.


D Day Celebrations

As you will probably be aware, this week Portsmouth is hosting a number of D-Day commemoration events. The biggest of these is on Wednesday 5th June when a large number of Heads of state, VIPs and visitors are expected in the city. I have been asked to make you aware that the roads in to and around Portsmouth are likely to be heavily congested on this day and journeys may take longer than usual. Some roads will be shut and many more will be subject to security measures. Please walk to school if at all possible.


School Nurse

The nurse will continue to hold drop-in sessions once every month in school. The next session will be on Monday 17th June between 9am and 10.30am. If you would like to sign up for a 10 minute slot, please see the office.


Parent Governor Vacancy

We have a fantastic group of governors who do a good job overseeing the strategic direction of the school, ensuring that we offer good quality education for all pupils and safeguarding the Catholic nature of our school.  If you feel that you could consider being a parent governor and would like to apply, please speak to the office.


Half Price Book Fair

The scholastic book fair will be in school from Tuesday 11th June until Friday 14th June. Please come and visit the fair from 3.30pm to 4pm each day. All books will be half price.



Our new signing in and registering system has been installed. This will increase our security of the site and build on our health and safety procedures. As I mentioned in the last newsletter, this will mean that you will be required to use the screen to sign in and out of the building when visiting. You will also need to bring your child in to the office to sign them in if they are ever late and sign them out if you have to pick them up early.


Contact Details

Thank you to all of those who have signed up to Parent Lite APP the new secure app that allows you to keep your contact details and child’s information up to date. For those who haven’t yet signed up, you can find information on our website or through the office staff. The app can be used on PCs as well as mobile devices.


Term Dates

The term dates can be found on the school website or requested from the office.

The school and nursery will be closed for the following INSET days this academic year;

Monday 22nd July

Tuesday 23rd July


End of Term Assembly will be held at 9am on Thursday 18th July and children will finish for the summer at 1.30pm on Friday 19th July.


Thank you once again for your continued support.


Yours sincerely,




L. Park

Head Teacher
