Dear Parents and Carers


“One of the greatest gifts the Holy Spirit can bestow on us is to give us calm in the midst of trouble.” St Claude de la Colombiere


Sports Week

This week is Sports Week when the children will be taking part in various sporting events and preparing for our annual Sports Day on Friday 28th June. Let’s all pray for good weather.


The children are asked to come into school wearing their P.E Kit next week.


We are hoping to start Sports Day at 9:30a.m this will then be followed by a family picnic on the school field at around 12:00 and then our Summer Fair at 2:00p.m.


We need you to support the children at all these events.

Last Friday a team of Year 5 and 6 pupils took part in a football festival. Our team only lost one game conceding only one goal throughout the festival. Well done children.


We also had a team of girls from 5 and 6 who played in a cricket festival this week and they enjoyed competing and showed great sportsmanship.

On Tuesday 25th June we have a team taking part in a Tag Rugby Festival. I am sure the children will give their best and make us proud.


Non School Uniform Thursday 27th June

On Thursday 27th June the children are invited to come into school in non- school uniform in return of donations of cakes from each family for our Cake Stall at the Summer Fair.


Family Picnic

As mentioned above on Friday 28th June after Sports Day we are holding our annual Family Picnic. Children  will still be able to have a school provided lunch but we are asking parents and carers to let us know in advance which children will require this. This will enable our catering team to prepare meals for those who have requested one so that we can reduce the amount of possible waste.


If we have to postpone Sports Day due to bad weather we will still be able to provide a school meal for all who need one as we will revert to our normal menu.


Year 3 Class Mass

On Wednesday 26th June Fr Jose will be celebrating Mass with Year 3 in their classroom. As with all our liturgy parents are invited to attend.


New Intake Story Telling sessions

On Monday it was great to welcome our new reception parents to the school for a new intake meeting. This week it is the children’s turn we are holding 2 story telling sessions for the children.


On Tuesday 25th June group A will be attending and on Wednesday 26th group B will attend. Both story telling sessions run from 1:30p.m to 2:15p.m.


St Simon’s Has Got Talent

On Friday we held the “Live Show” when all our chosen acts performed in front of the whole school. The judges had to decide who will be the four acts to take part in our “Grand Final” on Tuesday 25th June at 9:00a.m. I must congratulate all who took part there was a great deal of talent on display. The judges did an excellent job in deciding who will take part in the final.


Our chosen finalists are: Robin, “The Annies”, Amelia and Maddie and King. The school will have great difficulty on Tuesday deciding the overall winner. Parents and carers are invited to attend.


With best wishes
