Message from the Headteacher
This week we welcomed an inspection team who were here looking at three key areas of Catholic School life: Catholic Life and Mission, Teaching of RE and Collective Worship. Thank you so much to all of the parents who responded to the questionnaire. I’m not able to share the findings yet and look forward to doing so once the report is published.
Well done to the year 8 athletes who took part in an indoor athletics competition this week with the girls coming first and the boys narrowly missing out on first place.
The year 10s have had their examinations this week and their conduct has been superb. It has been pleasing to see so many pupils well prepared for the exams and working hard towards them.
Next Friday is an INSET day and there will be no children in school on this day (except for any specifically invited in for coursework etc)
You will no doubt be aware of the news of strike action by members of the National Education Union (NEU). During the course of next week we will let you know the implications of this for school so that you can plan accordingly. We will be moving the post-16 parents evening because of this and will let you know of the new date once confirmed.
May God give wisdom and courage to those who work for peace.
We pray that their efforts may be blessed, that they may bring an end to violence
and solace and stability to suffering peoples.
May the gift of peace permeate all troubled souls, convert all who live by violence
and comfort all children who live in menacing situations, that the freedom to enjoy life and grow in safety may be theirs.
And may each one of us know peace of mind and heart, peace of body and spirit, peace of community and world.
Holy Spirit of Peace, grant our prayer.
Mr A. Grant
