Message from the Headteacher
On Tuesday we held a service and a minute’s silence in the playground for each year group as part of the national day of reflection to remember one year since the start of the first lockdown. We were able to welcome Matthew Emery, the CSEL for the St John Paul II Multi Academy to the service and we were all very humbled by the experience. The children were very reverent and respectful and I would like to thank them all for this. It is hard to believe that it has been a whole year since the very first national lockdown and the past year has certainly brought us even closer as a community. This week is a time to remember and our thoughts and prayers are with those in our community who have been directly affected by Covid 19.
This Tuesday we are also holding our first virtual parents evening with year 11. If you are a year 11 parent but haven’t signed up yet please do so soon as the slots are running out. We hope that this will be a very successful evening and this may be the future of parents’ evenings if it proves successful.
Next week is our last week of term and we break up on Thursday 1st April. This will be a normal school day ending at the normal times. We will be holding a Reconciliation service in the morning which pupils will be attending virtually.
Thank you as always for your ongoing support and I will leave you with the prayer for the national day of reflection:
‘God of Love, as we think about all that has changed this year, help us to trust that you are always with us. As we remember those who have died, help us to trust they are at peace with you. As we reach out to others with kindness and care, may hope shine out in every heart and home. Amen’
