Junior School

Dear Parents,

The Autumn Term holds many joys for all the children in the Junior School. It is a chance for a fresh start, to meet new teachers and to make new friends.

The teaching staff will be particularly focussed on the findings of our recent Ofsted Inspection, and making changes so that the provision for the children is even better. As a 'Good' School, we are now in a place to make the experience for every child outstanding.

In the summer we said goodbye to Mr Seward and Miss Mullaney, who have returned to Canada. We were also delighted to announce the birth of twins for Mrs Ottlyk.

We now welcome Miss Hasson to the teaching staff in Class 3E St Elizabeth and Miss Attwell to Class 4T St Teresa. We are delighted that Ms Watts is working in Year 5.

Many thanks to all the parents who attended the first Parents' Open Evening on Wednesday 3rd October. For those of you who would like to look again at the thought-provoking questions linked to our characteristics of effective learning, they are in an attachment below labelled 'How can I help my child?'

Please don't forget that a real focus of our first half term will be our 50th Anniversary Mass, which will begin our anniversary celebrations that run through the academic year. Do let the school office know if you would like to share our celebration.
