Dear Parents and Carers


“There is nothing on this earth more to be prized than true friendship.” St Thomas Aquinas


It is very hard to believe that we are now at the end of yet another very busy term and that we will soon be entering term 6 the final term of the school year. How quickly this year seems to be passing.


The Children Singing in the St Simon’s at Pentecost

A great big thank you to all the children and their families who attended 10:00a.m. Mass to celebrate the feast of Pentecost. The children certainly sang beautifully and those playing instruments played with great enthusiasm. Well done everyone.


Arts Week

The children have been using the book “Wisp A story of hope” by Zana Fraillon and Grahame Baker-Smith as inspiration for their work this week. They have produced some lovely display work both in the classrooms and in the school hall. Once we have managed to get all the completed work up it would be good to be able to invite parents and carers into school to have a look at the work on display.


Year 6 Transition Visits

Now that Year 6 have finished their SATS and have been allocated schools we are very pleased to welcome the transition coordinators from their Secondary schools. These visits are usually very successful in helping the children to prepare for their next step in their education.


Year 5 Registration for Kent Test

Registration for Year 5 for the Kent Test opens on Monday 3rd June and closes on Monday 1st of July. If Year 5 parents or carers need any advice on this process or aren’t sure if a grammar school is the right place for your child please do not hesitate to contact the school. Parents need to note that Grammar Schools are for children who are in the top 25%.


Half Term Holiday

Next week is the half-term holiday a time for some rest and relaxation. I would like to remind parents in Year 4 their children will be taking part in The Multiplication Times Tables test on their return to school after half term.


Please can parents and carers remind the children to keep working on their times tables.


Year 1 and some children in Year 2 will be completing the Phonics Screening Check on the week beginning Monday 10th June so please keep up the reading practice over the holiday.


Congratulations Mrs Morrison

I am very pleased to inform you that Mrs Morrison is pregnant with her second child. We are all very pleased for Mrs Morrison, her husband and Max their son on this good news. Mrs Morrison is planning on staying with us for the remainder of this academic year and hopes to go off on maternity leave early in the new academic year. Congratulations Mrs Morrison!


With best wishes
