Year 6 visit to Walsingham House
From Wednesday 16th October to Thursday 17th October Year 6 went on a retreat to Walsingham House in Brentwood. They worked on identifying their own strengths and skills and took part in activities to develop team work. Thank you to Miss Sethi and Mr Agyemang for accompanying them.
Today Friday 18th October the whole school took part in our House relay. Pupils were split into mixed age groups and took part in a range of different relay activities collecting points for their house. A big thank you to Mr Agyemang for organising it and a thank you to staff and the Academy sports leaders for helping on the day. The results were as follows:1st place – St Cecilia (376)
2nd place – St Vincent (375)
3rd place – St Ursula (370)

Special mention to St Cecilia 3 who scored the highest number of points as an individual team.
Year 1 trip to Jenkins Recycling Centre
On the 16th October Year 1 went to Jenkins Recycling Centre and learnt the importance of recycling. The children had the opportunity to participate in a variety of mini workshops, such as making bunting using recyclable materials, working out what metals were aluminium and steel and then role playing and sorting different materials into the correct bins.
A reminder that the next PTFA meetings will be held on:
- Monday 4th November at 4.00pm.
- Tuesday 3rd December – 4.00pm

Prize Day Trophies
Congratulations to all the children who won their class cup at prize day. A reminder to please have your child’s name engraved and return the cup to the school office as soon as possible. These will then be displayed in our trophy cabinet outside the main office. Thank you to those who have already returned them.
Please make sure that your children’s belongings are clearly labelled. There are a number of items already in lost property. The Year 6 pupils will be displaying lost property for collection each Friday morning before school. Please be advised that if there is no name and it has not been claimed, uniform items will be sent to the used uniform shop and non-uniform items will be given to the local charity shop.
The role of class parent is to help improve communication between home and school and also to increase parent involvement. Class parents are the coordinators of support for your child’s class. They help organise support for teachers and class room activities as needed and facilitate a sense of community among the children’s families. They strengthen communication between the school and the families. Thank you to those who have already volunteered. Please see the list below.
|Class||Parent’s name||Child’s name|
|Year 5||Suki||Kieran G|
|Year 4||Mansi + Amanda||Vihaan + Larelle|
|Year 2||Kiren + Nkechi||Jayan + Nkem|
|Year 1||Bola + Tahera||Samantha + Zakariya|
Well done to Year 1 and Year 3 for perfect punctuality last week. Unfortunately, there were no classes with perfect attendance this week. Hopefully this week we have even more classes with no absences and no lates.
Please can you inform the office if you have any new contact details (email address, phone, address, etc.).
