During school closure

We will keep in contact with you through Parent Mail and regular updates on the Website.  Teachers will also update Class Pages with activities for the children to complete .  In due course, teachers will give full information of work to be completed by pupils if we have an enforced closure.  We will make use of our online learning ( Bug Club , TT Rockstars and Education City).

 

 

You can help to slow the spread of Coronavirus!

  • Make sure you and your children follow these general principles to prevent spreading any respiratory virus:
  • Wash your hands often – with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or an alcohol-based sanitiser if soap and water aren’t available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • If you feel unwell, stay at home and don’t attend work or school.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in the home.
  • If you’re worried about your symptoms, please call NHS 111 – don’t go directly to your GP or other healthcare environment.

I would like to send you a very warm welcome to St Teresa's Catholic Primary School and thank you for visiting our website. It is with  great pleasure that we launch our new look website  so that you can use it regularly for information and also to celebrate the success of the children across school.

 

As your new Headteacher, I am very excited to be joining the St Teresa Family.  Having lived and worked in St Helens my whole life, I appreciate the history of the school and the strong bond of the local community.  I very much look forward to getting to know all of our children, staff and families over the coming weeks and building on good home/school links .

 

We will be sharing our strong focus on high expectations for the beginning of a new term centred around our new Mission Statement. In this way, we can continue on our upward journey of school improvement together. Please support our determination to maximise outcomes for all children by helping to reinforce key messages about Attendance, Behaviour, Uniform and Gospel Values to the children.

 

Many thanks in anticipation for your continued support

 

Mrs R Brookes

Headteacher
