LETTER TO PARENTS FOLLOWING NATIONAL LOCKDOWN ANNOUNCEMENT
Whole school closure tomorrow
Following the Prime Minister's press conference and the announcement that we are in National Lockdown you will be aware schools across the country have been instructed to close from tomorrow for all pupils with the exception of critical worker and vulnerable children.
However following discussion with the Chair of Governors and in order to ensure the safety of staff and pupils we will have to risk assess classroom capacity, therefore tomorrow St. Paul's will be closed to all children including Year 2.
This decision has not been taken lightly and we thank you for your support and understanding.
We will communicate further regarding online learning and the eligibility of critical worker and vulnerable children tomorrow. Please be aware that all staff will be involved in this planning and we ask for your kindness and patience.

Phase reopening of school
Please see below the leaflet that all parents have been sent detailing the changes to school as from 1st June.
The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales have designated 2020 as to celebrate the 10th anniversary of – Pope Benedict XVI’s Apostolic Exhortation on ‘The Word of the Lord’, and the 1600th anniversary of death of St Jerome, who translated the Bible into Latin.
At St. Paul’s we have dedicated this year to be ‘Our Year of the Word’. Throughout the year we shall be seeking opportunities to celebrate, live and share God’s word with our children, our parish and our school community.
Below you will find 2 powerpoints with additional useful information.
Sacred Scripture, the Bible, the word of God, the Holy Book is at the heart of everything the Church says and does. It is permeates our prayer and worship, how we understand the world, how we are called to live and how we relate to each another
