St Joseph's Catholic Primary School

Love, learn and live in Christ!

Hello Parents/Carers! Please remember, if you are a Key Worker and need emergency child care because you have been called to the frontline and there is no one else who can look after your child, then ring Mrs Naylor or Mrs Thompson to discuss the possibility of a place. We should only be your last resort. School is closed on Good Friday and Easter Monday. Thank you for the many uplifting emails I have received which I will be passing onto the staff! Please read my message in the left column below and keep checking this over the holidays as I will be tweaking it!

Message from Mrs Hodges

Well it has been a very strange 2 weeks so far hasn't it!

I want to commend the teachers for uploading such a great range of work for their classes every day on the webpages - this is no mean feat I can tell you and a lot of work goes into it before the work is uploaded!

I have to mention our amazing children who are sending in some great photos and images of their work. You are brilliant! Keep at it.

I want to also commend the staff who have kept school going for key worker children, ensuring their safety and well being.

I am in regular contact with the Governing Body who continue to support me and our school. I thank them so much for this.

I finally want to commend you, the parents/carers, who have engaged with the webpage learning so brilliantly well. You are doing a great job in challenging circumstances so don't be hard on yourselves -  be proud instead!

Over the next 2 weeks, as we come to our arranged Easter holidays, there will be no daily work set on the class webpages but the teachers may well have set a project to be done over the next two weeks so please go on and have a look. The prospect of a project will enable you to implement some structure to your day if that helps.

I will be posting a few things here on the home page over the holidays so do keep checking!

Here is something to watch on Sunday - PALM SUNDAY - it is only 2 minutes long but sets the scene for what then happens during Holy Week. Watch it and talk about it with your child.

Stay safe, keep washing your hands and keep smiling!

God bless.

WHOLE SCHOOL WORSHIP FOCUS

           Each week we gather together as a whole school and in Key Stages to learn about and reflect on how we can be the very best versions of ourselves that we can be.

By focusing on the Virtues that are so important in our daily lives, using scripture and Bible stories to help us, as well as the messages Pope Francis sends out, we work hard as a school family to be the best people we can be.

We are focusing on the Virtue of FORGIVENESS.

We have listened to scripture readings and reflected on how we can learn from these to help us grow in VIRTUE.
