Weekly News 14 June 2024

Dear Parents and Carers


“It is in the human heart that the kingdom takes root and grows.” Pope Francis


This has been another busy week with many of our classes taking part in different assessments.


Year 1 and some of Year 2 having been taking part in the Phonics Screening Check and Year 4 have completed their Multiplication Times Tables Check and some of the other classes have been completing end of year assessments. We are very proud about the way the children have approached the assessments all gave their very best showing great resilience. Well done children.


St Simon’s Sports Day, Family Picnic and Summer Fair

On Friday the 28th June we are holding our annual Sports Day followed by a Family Picnic on the field and then our Summer Fair. This is always a very busy but enjoyable day when the whole school gets together to cheer on the children, enjoy a picnic and all the fun of the fair!

We need you to come along and join the events but more importantly we need volunteers to help run the fair and help out.


If you can help please can you contact myself, the office or any member of staff.


Non-Uniform Days

We are holding a number of non-school uniform days to help provide for some of the stalls on our Summer Fair.

Many thanks to all who made donations today towards our Colour Raffle these are greatly appreciated.

Next Friday in return for Non-Uniform Day the pupils are asked to bring in a bottle for our bottle stall. Nice bottles that adults like to drink (in moderation of course) usually sell the most tickets and raise the most money for the school!


New Intake Meeting

On Monday 17th June at 6:00p.m we are holding our New Intake Meeting for our new Reception children for September 2024. I always enjoy this meeting as it is the first time we welcome our new parents into the school family.

Sporting Events

Mr Hunt has been busy preparing the children for different competitions- This week a team from Year 4 took part in a cricket festival and today children from Year 5 and 6 will have taken part in a football festival. Next week we have a team of Year 5 and 6 girls participating in another Cricket Festival.

I am always very proud of how well our teams compete because the children always give their very best and show great sportsmanship.


Mr Macdonald

On Monday we will be saying farewell to Mr Macdonald one of our support staff who will be leaving us to take up a position in one of the local secondary schools. I would like to thank Mr Macdonald for all his hard work and wish him the very best of luck.  We will of course keep Mr Macdonald in our thoughts and prayers.


St Simon’s Has Got Talent

The auditions have almost all been completed and we are all looking forward to “The Live Show” on Friday 21st June at 2:00p.m. “The Live Show” is when the children will get to view the acts and vote for their favourites who will take part in “The Grand Final” on Tuesday 25th June at 9:00a.m.


I wish all the competitors the very best of luck.


With best wishes
