A word to parents/guardians: please make sure you read the list of dates we have given you, read the newsletter and listen to the announcement so that there is no chance you forget when the children need to attend. Please be punctual. If your child is ill or cannot attend any session for a serious reason make sure you let either Maria Griffith-Crowe or Fr Michael know in advance.


*St Thomas More Catholic Primary School*
In March, our parish primary school underwent their Ofsted Inspection. It lasted two days and we are delighted that the outcome was Outstanding (as was the Inspection of Catholic Education which happened in 2016 at the school). Back in 2010 I wrote a letter to the parents of the school to hope that one day the school would be in the Premiership and it has happened! All areas were outstanding including, EYFS, Outcomes, Teaching and learning. We are very proud of all the children who attend and worked so very hard to make this happen. If you would like to read the report it will be on the school website Congratulations to Mrs. Doran-Hannon and her team.
