Welcome to St Catherine's
Dear children, parents and carers
It is now three months since a national lockdown was put in place and our school and our communities have become very different places. Thankfully there appears to be a glimmer of hope now as the daily figures for new infections and deaths are reducing but we continue to live through difficult and challenging times. We are being asked to remain alert and maintain social distancing as life begins to slowly to return to normal.
As you know, St. Catherine's has remained open throughout the 'lockdown period' and on Monday 15th June we opened more widely to pupils in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6. Those children that have been in school since lockdown began, continue to come to school as well. We delayed opening the school more widely until we felt that it was safe to do so. We fully understand the worries and concerns of parents in the year groups that have been asked to return.
We have 38 pupils in school now and these pupils are taught in small teaching bubbles. School certainly looks different for staff and pupils but we are delighted to welcome back those children that have returned this week. Some parents of children in these year groups may now decide that they also want their child to return to school and if this is the case then they must contact the school for details first.
We realise that the majority of our pupils remain at home and that is why we will continue to provide on-line learning for every child and regular phone calls home to check on the well-being of every child and to offer any educational support and advice that is needed.
It appears unlikely that any further year groups will be able to return before the summer holidays. It is still unclear what school will look like for us all in September but when we have more clarity on this we will let you know straight away. Until then, St. Catherine's remains here for each and every one of you. If you need advice and or support then please do contact the school in the usual way.
Until then we must all continue to put our faith in God and pray that everyone in our school community stays safe.
Happy Summer Holidays to All our St Catherine's Family!
Enjoy your much well deserved break!
See you all on Wednesday 2nd September!
