    Message from the Head Teacher 8-Jul-20

    Dear Parents & Carers

    I just wanted to let you know that we are responding to the latest government guidance released last week to plan for September. Mrs Sharratt will be writing to you next week to give you clearer details of the plans but I think it’s important that you have some broad brushstrokes.

    Message from the Head Teacher - Yr 7, 8 & 9

    Dear Parents and Carers

    I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your patience and support throughout this difficult time.  We are extremely proud of our students and the way they have adjusted to remote and independent learning.  I do appreciate that this is not an easy time and lockdown will have presented with many different pressures along the way.  It has been a year like no other and I’m sure we’ll emerge into a different sense of normal when we get through it.  The time has given us the opportunity to reflect on many things but hopefully we will all value the importance of education that much more and not take it for granted.  The ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement also gives us a reminder that part of our job as educators is to lift the blindness and ignorance that still exists in our world today.

    8-Jun-20 Message from the Head Teacher to Yr 10 & 12

    Dear Parents and Carers

    As you will be aware from the announcement on Friday, the R rate across the NW has increased to 1.01. An R rate of below 1 was one of the government's 5 key tests that needed to be met in order for schools to be opened more widely alongside track and trace systems to support the reliable tracing of infection.

  • What Parents Need to Know About Facebook Messenger

    What Parents Need to Know About Facebook Messenger

    Facebook Messenger has been an intricate part of Facebook for some time. It is used by billions of people all over the world and has slowly evolved over the years, now offering more than just a simple text messaging service. More recently, it has introduced ‘Messenger Rooms’ in a bid to rival other video calling software platforms, such as Zoom for instance. That why this week, we’ve created this useful guide to help parents and carers understand exactly what Facebook Messenger is all about.

    Letter to Parents

    Dear Parents and Carers,

    I write with further information about plans to extend the opening of our school. Today we have learned that the Directors of Holy Family Multi Academy Trust (HFCMAT) have decided that we will not open our school on 1stJune.  This is in line with guidance from our Local authority & Diocese. The reason for this is that we do not have sufficient evidence to ensure that risks could be managed effectively if we return at this time.

    SJP Wellbeing - site launch

    Dear Parents and Carers 

    The outbreak of Coronavirus disease has raised many difficulties for all of us. Fear and anxiety about a disease can be overwhelming and cause strong emotions for adults and children alike. Pupils at SJP benefit from structure, routine and consistency; factors which we believe not only support them in their learning but also in their mental wellbeing too.
