RE Section 48 Inspection

On Wednesday 5th April the Diocese of Shrewsbury attended our school to carry out a Section 48 Inspection into the Catholic Life of the School and Religious Education.  The Inspectors concluded and agreed with us that we are a GOOD school.

Here is an extract from the letter that they sent :

"May we congratulate you and your colleagues on the good work that is celebrated in this report.  It will be passed to Bishop Mark who is keen to read about the progress being made in the schools across the Diocese.  He very much appreciates the commitment and effort that is given by the governors and staff in supporting the development of the pupils."

The report can be viewed here.


We have decided that we are going to enhance the main entrance of the school with two mosaics. The children have all had some input into the design and will be working on the mosaic itself over the next few weeks. I hope you enjoy the results. One mosaic will be on the wall on the way into school and the other will be inside the reception area.

Weekly attendance award

Congratulations to Year 5 who had the best attendance this week.

Attendance rewards 

From September those children who arrive late, even if they get 97% and above, will not have the cinema and other treats. We aim to help you get  the children in school on time as being late has a major impact on their education.  Again you will only receive the £5 token if your attendance is 100% with NO LATES.

Attention all Nursery Parents! Additional afternoon sessions are available.

Children who attend our school nursery in the morning are now able to pay for additional afternoon sessions. 

Children are able to remain in school until 3.30pm, providing that this is booked and paid for in advance.  Booking forms are available from the school office and each additional session will cost £10.  Children who are staying in school for the full day must be provided with a packed lunch.


First Aid accreditation

Well done to all the children in school who took part in First Aid training.

In recognition of the School's commitment to First Aid training and health and safety, we have received the St Johns Ambulance School mark.
