Headteacher's Message

I would like to send you a very warm welcome to St Teresa's Catholic Primary School and thank you for visiting our website. We are very proud of how our strong school family community is coping with the current global pandemic including everybody's efforts to maintain a high standard of remote learning for all our children.  We send our grateful thanks and appreciation to families who have supported the children at home over the last few months. 

 

#TeamTeresa is excited to welcome all of the children back to school from 8th March when face to face learning will consolidate and celebrate teaching and learning this year.

 

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

   WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL  2.9.20

 It was wonderful to see all the children return to school today and looking extremely smart in the new uniforms! Everyone has returned with a positive attitude and have taken all the new arrangements in their stride.  Please look at the up-to-date newsletters for all the details you need to know. 

 

Although our school staff will not always be readily on hand for face-to-face conversations at the moment, we aim to maintain the high standard of communication between home and school that you expect from us. Please use our school email or phone the Office if you have any queries and the relevant member of staff will get back to you as soon as possible.

 

Even though it is not quite "business as usual" in terms of arriving and leaving school at the moment, I can assure you that Teaching and Learning is very much our core purpose inside the classrooms. All our staff at St Teresa's have been working very hard during the Summer to plan and prepare an exciting curriculum for the children for the Autumn term.  We have made sure that we are prepared for "blended learning" in case any class has to continue learning at home during any period of isolation or absence at short notice.  We will send more information about this in the next few days.

 

 Many thanks for your continued support

A special note from Mrs Brookes

To all the families, children and staff who have made feel so welcome in my first year at St Teresa’s; Who would have thought last September that we would be finishing the year like this!  We have made it through as a team and we are stronger for it! It has been a very strange ending to a wonderful year and I thank everyone for your hard work and support.

It  has been fantastic to see so many children back in school this week and it’s been a great taster for how things will be in September.  I am very much look forward to seeing everybody again in September for even bigger and better things to come.  I am very excited by all the plans we have for you all in the Autumn term!

In the meantime, have a restful summer break and god bless you all x

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.
