With all the confusion over symptoms displayed by children, the DfE have produced the following, short video clip to help parents and carers decide which is the best course of action to take. Please take a few minutes to watch the clip. In addition, there is a further, useful guidance document which has been shared by the Catholic Schools Partnership, which is also on the front page of the school…
Knowing exactly what to do, should someone in your household develop Covid symptoms, can feel quite complicated, especially with so much guidance out there to be read. We therefore hope that parents and carers will find this simple guide useful in deciding what to do. Another useful guide is the government’s Stay at Home Guidance, the link to which is below. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-stay-at-home-guidance/stay-at-home-guidance-for-households-with-possible-coronavirus-covid-19-infection
Schools have now received further information from the DfE, to pass on to parents and carers. Once again, we hope it goes some way to reassuring all parents and carers that it is safe for the children to return to school on Wednesday. This document is available in several different languages, which you will find in the Newsletter section of the website.

The Trinity is one of the richest concepts to help us grow in relationship with God, but it is also one of the most difficult to understand. In this assembly, we follow the lead of St Patrick who used the shamrock (a three-leafed clover) to help people understand the Trinity and grow in a loving relationship with God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
Thank you to everybody who sent photographs.
A Meeting With Jesus In this assembly, we journey with two disciples to Emmaus and on the way meet the risen Jesus. The Gospel helps children understand how they can meet with Jesus today at Mass, in both the Liturgy of the Word and the Liturgy of the Eucharist.
The ‘A-Ha!’ Moment This assembly invites to children experience what it is like to be baffled by something and then to understand, just like Thomas in the Gospel when he struggled to believe in Jesus’ resurrection because he hadn’t seen with his own eyes.
