Parents are invited to their class liturgies. The liturgies are a wonderful time of prayer and a chance to celebrate the children’s learning. They start at 9.15am on Tuesdays and usually last for about 20 minutes.

Request for Absence - Please remember that the school cannot authorise any absence for holidays.

We have published these term dates so you can plan your holidays during holiday time and not during school time. The Local Authority takes the view that taking children on holiday during term time can be damaging to a child's educational progress for two reasons.  Firstly, children find it very difficult to catch up on the learning that they have missed and in the longer term this can have a negative impact on their progress.  Secondly and as importantly, children can be given a very unhelpful message about the value and importance of going to school.  As parents and carers you will want the best education for your child.  By taking holidays during the designated holiday periods, you will be supporting your child's full school attendance, learning and development.
