Our Mission Statement
“To walk hand in hand with God, loving him, loving each other and loving ourselves, doing our best with the gifts he gave us to make the world a richer place.”
Dear Parents and Carers,
On behalf of the children, staff and governors, I would like to thank you for all your support over the past term. We are very proud of the excellent work and outstanding behaviour shown by the children, especially during this busy time of year. Both children and staff have worked very hard and I hope they enjoy a well-deserved rest over the holidays.
The Christmas performances were exceptional and the children are to be congratulated on their talents. As a thank you for all their hard work, the children from F2-Y6 enjoyed a film and F1 enjoyed their Christmas party on Wednesday.
Thank you for your generous donations of £268.67, collected after all the performances, and all the items of food and clothing collected throughout school with our ‘reverse Advent calendars’. This will help to provide many hot dinners for the people who visit the soup kitchen at St Paul’s every day. We also raised £185 for Save the Children on Christmas Jumper Day. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
The children all look very smart in their school uniforms. I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that trainers are not part of our school uniform. Smart, black shoes are the required footwear for boys. Black or navy shoes or boots are acceptable for girls. I ask that children return to school in January with the correct footwear. For P.E. your child requires navy shorts, a white t-shirt and plimsols/trainers. It is essential that children also have navy jogging bottoms and a navy sweatshirt as P.E. sessions continue to take place outside in the winter. P.E. Kits consisting of a white t-shirt, navy shorts and a bag can be purchased from the office for £7.
Foundation 2 Admissions
Applications for a school place in the Foundation 2 class next year must be made before 15th January 2019. You must apply on both the Nottingham City Council admission form and the Catholic Schools’ Supplementary form. Applying online is the quickest and easiest way to apply and is completely safe and secure. You will also find step-by-step instructions to help you get started on www.nottinghamcity.gov.uk/e-admissions. You will receive an email confirming that Nottingham City Admissions have received your application, giving you total peace of mind. Please ensure your application contains the necessary evidence to support your request. Last year we had over 130 applications for the 30 places available so it is very important to have your form in on time.
