The Feast of Mary, Mother of the Church – Monday 24th May

All Saints Parish have encouraged a Rosary Day of Prayer to pray for our beloved Young People – to pray and intercede for the Mission and Intentions of our schools, youth associations, groups/Projects, our young people and for families.

As a school we will be praying a decade of the rosary across each class as part of our Collective Worship on Monday morning.

 

Wet Weather

The weather is very unpredictable at the moment, with the forecast showing the likelihood of sudden rain. Please can all children come to school with a raincoat.

 

Outreach Play Sessions During May Half Term

Newport City Council Play Development Team are planning to deliver some outreach Play sessions during May Half Term.  These sessions will be delivered outdoors in open spaces for just under two hours.

Previously these have been open access provision where children are able to turn up and join in on the day, however due to Covid restrictions they require children to be booked on before attending the session so they are able to monitor numbers and for track and trace purposes.

To book a place please follow the link below:

Reminder: Symptom Awareness

Please do not send your child to school if they have any of the following symptoms:

  • A new and continuous cough
  • A high temperature
  • Loss of taste or smell

If any of these symptoms occur please book a Covid-19 test as soon as is possible and communicate the result to us via school text service or school email (day or night) as soon as you receive it.

 

If your child is not in school, for whatever reason, please do text, email or phone us with the reason as soon as possible on the day of absence, as this is part of the records we need to keep in these COVID times in addition to our normal safeguarding procedures.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Mrs M Harris

Headteacher
