COVID in School – If your child displays symptoms of COVID, the guidance remains the same, keep them at home and book a PCR test.  If your child is tested for COVID, please forward a copy of the result of the PCR test to the school office.  If a positive result is returned, please contact the school office for further guidance.  If a child tests positive in any class, an alert letter will be sent out to the parents/guardians of pupils in that class.  The guidance has changed you do not keep your child off school.


Anti-Bullying week – This will run from 15th-19th November. Pupils will be doing various activities during the week in class on the topic.  To start off the week’s activities, Monday 15th November is OdD SoCk DaY!  Pupils are asked to wear odd socks or different tights from the norm to school to celebrate uniqueness!


ParentPay – Please ensure that you book school dinners at home in advance.  Dinners must be booked before 8:45 a.m. on the day your child is attending.  Letters regarding any outstanding payments for activities have been issued this week.  Please check bags.

Saint Vincent de Paul – The school will not be doing the annual collection of food for SVDP this year due to the risks that it would pose in transferring foodstuff from one household to another.  We will be doing a draw for SVDP with the help of the other schools and clubs in the Parish.
