Chaplaincy Commissioning

This week our Chaplaincy Team visited Clifton Cathedral to receive their chaplaincy badges from Bishop Declan as part of a special service.

Chaplaincy is an important aspect of the faith life of the school and the team are looking forward to promoting  our gospel values around the school and community. 

Parent Volunteers 

We would like to create a small team of parents who are available to help out with school trips. We would offer some simple training and a full DBS check would be required to ensure safety. . Parent volunteers would not necessarily be on trips with their own child’s class but would have a great opportunity to support the school and our children. Please contact the school office if you are interested. 

Parents' Evening 

A reminder that Parents’ Evening will be held next week on Monday 16th and Tuesday 17th October from 3:30pm - 5:50pm. This is a fantastic opportunity to hear how well your child is getting on at school.  If you have not yet booked an appointment, please contact the school office to do so. 

Year 4 Blaise Castle Visit 

Last Friday, Year 4 visited Blaise Hamlet and the surrounding area as part of their ‘Settlements and Landuse’ Geography topic. They had an absolutely brilliant time exploring the Hamlet, Blaise Folly, Hazel Brook and more. Of course, the children experienced having the entire park to themselves which was a well deserved treat
