Thursday 22nd October Updated. 

Due to the explosion on King Street, the school is not able to open tomorrow.  We will be closed on Friday 23rd too. Next week is the half-term break so the school will remain closed until November 2nd. Have a safe break.

Dear Parents,

Welcome back to all of you and a very warm welcome to all the new children, parents, carers and staff who are new to St Anselm’s.  I was extremely pleased to be able to welcome all the children back to school at the start of the term. 

The children settled in very quickly and have enjoyed being back in the classroom.  The routines are slightly different of course but it has just become a normal part of the day.  Together with the staff and governors, we have worked together to make the school as safe as we can for the children. 

 

We have continued to provide a broad and balanced curriculum so that the children gain as much experience and joy as they engage with their learning.  Of course, we cannot begin our new school year without thinking of Mrs Sykes and her family – she is sadly missed by all. 

 

I am privileged to be able to lead the school as the Acting Headteacher of this wonderful school and we will continue to build on the legacy left by Mrs Sykes.

I will strive to be available or to make time to talk to parents when needed, so please contact me if you wish to discuss any issues or ask questions.

 

I would like to thank the staff and Governors for their hard work and commitment to the school. I will continue to work closely with them, to ensure that the children receive the best possible education. Yours faithfully,  Deacon Tito.

September 1st 2020 Update

Dear Parents, a letter via Text Link has been sent out regarding the whole school reopening – a copy can be found in the Letters and Newsletters Tab under the Parents’ Tab on this website.  All children are expected to be back on Thursday 3rd September and we are looking forward to seeing the children. Please note that Harrisons will be providing school lunches as normal.

July 3rd Update

It has been wonderful to welcome back the children from Rec, Year 1 and Year 6 since the phased reopening began in June.  The children have really benefited from this and the staff have enjoyed having real contact with the children instead of the virtual learning that has taken place.  Many parents are still reluctant to send their children back at the moment but from September the expectation will be that all the children will come back to school.  We will continue with all the safety measures and ensure that children and adults follow the guidance provided by the government.  More information will be sent out in due course.  For those who are still at home, it is important that they continue their online learning.  Learning packs are available for those families who do not have access to computers or the internet.  Please contact Mrs Dhak if you need Home Learning Materials.

 

 

June 19th Update

Year 6 pupils have had the opportunity to be in school since June 15th. The children have been placed in small groups called "Bubbles" in order to minimise the risk of infection. In addition to this, the school has introduced other safety measures. This has been a very positive experience for both pupils and staff. The school is considering how we may open up for more pupils before the summer.

Some of you have been contacted already via the online survey. Thank you for your responses so far. Please note that not all Year Groups will be able to return due to the Social Distancing Measures at present so your Year Group may not have been contacted.

 

We are currently awaiting further official guidance about the reopening of schools in September. We will inform you about this once we have further information. In the meantime, thank you for supporting your child with "Home Learning" since the Lockdown.

June 1st Update - Y6

Year 6 Parents have been contacted regarding the first phase of the proposed reopening of the school on June 15th. This will be for Year 6 only to begin with.  Other year groups to follow after this date; we will contact you if we feel it is safe to extend this beyond Y6. Many thanks. 

School Reopening Update

Dear Parents and carers, the school continues to remain closed to all pupils with the exception of the children of Critical Workers. The Senior Leadership Team and Governors are planning for a safe phased reopening of the school. Therefore, St Anselm's will not reopen on June 1st due to our current risk assessment. When we feel that it is safe enough to open we will begin with a small number of children. You will be informed when your child's class is being invited back to school and the detailed plans will be shared at the appropriate time. In the meantime keep the whole school community in your prayers. Kind regards, Dcn Tito and the School Team

School Reopening

Dear Parents, many of you are wondering if the school will reopen on June 1st.  The school is currently awaiting further guidance from the Government. Just to be clear, the school will remain closed unless it is safe to reopen.  If the school is ready for a phased re-opening, we will inform you and give you further details. In the meantime, do not assume that the school will open again on June 1st. The school is closed until further notice. (May 12th update)

 

Learning Packs

Most children have been doing some fantastic online learning set by their teachers.  The learning packs sent out at the start of the closure are also being used well. If you do not have a computer at home, additional learning packs are available.  Please contact the school beforehand and we can arrange a collection time. 

 

 

Dear Parents the following website may be useful to look at and you may qualify for extra help especially if you have children who are under 4 years old.

Dear Parents, many of the children are using the J2 Launch App in order to complete their homework.  This is easier for the teachers to comment on  and give direct feedback to the children who are also able to ask questions about the tasks to their teachers.  Please encourage your children to use this. The J2 Launch App can be found in the Children's tab on the website.
