Details for Summer Concert
Thank you to Year 2 for their lovely assembly about friendship. Such wonderful singing and some lovely stories told through super acting. The next class assembly will be Year 1 and will take place on Friday 25th May at 9:10am. As always, parents and friends are invited to attend.
Last Friday 27th April was History Day. The pupils dressed up as a person from history and learnt about significant people from the past. In the afternoon the hall turned into a Wax Museum with Year 5&6 transforming into people from the past. The other classes enjoyed visiting the museum and learning the life stories of so many different people. A big thank you to Mrs Kung for organising the event and to everyone for participating so enthusiastically.
May Crowning of Our Lady
It is a Catholic tradition to honour Mary, our Mother, during the month of May by placing a crown of flowers on her statue. This lovely devotional ceremony is held in many parishes and schools worldwide. The May Crowning gives the children an opportunity to especially honour the Blessed Mother of Jesus, and to give thanks to her for bringing our Saviour into the world. Our school will be honouring Mary with a special prayer service and crowning on Friday 18th May at 9.10am.
A letter has been sent out in regards to the PSHE Day trip to the Town hall to see the Mayor. Please ensure that the form is signed and returned to the class teacher. We are also looking for volunteer parents to accompany the classes on the day. If you do not have a letter, they can be found in the main office.
We are holding our 1st Summer Concert on Tuesday 8th May in the Academy Hall. It will be showcasing the talents within our school from Choir, Young Voices, Ballet, Irish dancing, Street dancing, Bollywood, Speech and drama and instrumentalists.

Finale – School Song
All children who have taken part to perform.
Staff are not allowed to administer or to measure out any medication. Therefore, children must be able to administer their medicine/pumps themselves and liquid medicine must be measured out ready for consumption when brought in. Exceptions may be made, after consultation, in the case of chronic illness e.g. chronic asthma, diabetes.
All medicines must be clearly labelled with the child’s name and details of dosage/administration and handed in to the office. Generally, only medicine prescribed by a doctor can be taken in school and this must be proven by the prescription label, however exceptions again can be made in the case of hayfever/allergy medication for example but again it must be clearly labelled and pre-measured.
If you think your child requires Calpol for any reason and it is not prescribed by a doctor, we will only allow this for one day. If you believe it is required for more than one day, then your child should be kept at home until they are well enough to attend school without medication.
N.B. Does the school have a telephone number where you or someone else can be contacted in an emergency?
Please inform the school immediately of any changes in address and/or telephone numbers
Signing Out After School Club
Please remember to sign your children out when collecting them from the after school club. It is very important to write the time that you have collected your child so that the after school club staff are able to keep an accurate record of pupils present. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
Can I please remind everyone that the parking bays in the front of the school are for staff only and must not be used in the morning for dropping off. This is currently causing staff lateness which impacts on your own children.
Congratulation to Year 5 who had no absences this week. Unfortunately, there are no classes who have had no lates this week. Hopefully next week we will have even more classes with no absences and no lates. Please be reminded that any term time absences should be requested and authorised by the headteacher using the absence request form which can be found in the main office.
Please can you inform the office if you have any change in your contact details (email address, phone, address, etc.).
