|A message from the Executive Head|
Dear Parents and Guardians
Here comes the sun!
Welcome to the Summer Term - a term which we hope will be as enjoyable as it is safe. The staff are literally buzzing with excitement at the thought of some normality in the school day which is emerging slowly but securely into our lives.
Over the next few weeks I hope to share with you the schools plans for the term. This includes items that we would consider as our 'usual routine' - sports days, galas, plays and performances, trips and sports fixtures, after school activities and a full enrichment programme, and of course, the core of our work which is teaching and learning. Several months ago this seemed a distant dream - we have every hope that it will become a reality.
This week, the Heads have decided to share their introduction to the term in person - I hope you enjoy the videos!
Have a wonderful weekend.
Executive Head Teacher
Summer Term Catering Offer
Thank you to everyone who responded to the recent Catering Provision Survey and for your most valuable comments.
Naturally, as further restrictions are lifted, our aim is to increase what we are able to offer as soon as safely possible. But a common theme that emerged was a wish for a cold lunchtime option and our catering teams believe they can now provide this. Therefore, from Monday 26 April we will offer a boxed salad and a yoghurt or fruit option. Please see our website and menus at All sites Summer Menus.
In order not to delay the widening of our lunchtime offer, there is no need to reorder your child’s meal options for next week (ie w/c 26 April) as we will provide a quantity of salads and yoghurts with every year groups’ hot food. Your child will be able to make the choice of a hot or cold meal at the point of delivery and choose a piece of fruit or a yoghurt at the same time. We will also have an offering for our Nursery and Junior pupils.
However, if your child wants a salad rather than the hot food, please help us by rebooking your child’s meal options for the following week (ie w/c 3 May) onwards and to do this no later than 4pm on Thursday 29 April. There is no need to rebook if you have no changes. You will also be able to alternate your child’s meal choices, for example, have a salad on one day, hot meal the next and/or vegetarian. Again this flexibility was requested by many. Please note that you should still book all five days as the weekly charging arrangement will continue.
Whilst still not the ideal, we hope by half term we should see some further relaxation of the Covid restrictions as promised by the Prime Minister which will enable us to reopen our dining rooms fully.
Current Year 4- Year 12. We have had a fantastic response to our ski trip for Easter 2022. We are trying to obtain more places from our ski company and are confident we should be able to do so. If you have not already paid your deposit for either skiing or snowboarding and would like to go on the trip please can you pay the deposit by Sunday 25 April at the latest. We will be in touch with everyone shortly to confirm whether you were successful in obtaining a place.
ALL YEAR GROUPS:
Welcome back to all our parents and pupils.

Coaches and Activities

The Big Ask - National Survey now live
The new Children’s Commissioner for England, Dame Rachel de Souza, is doing the largest ever survey of children in England. It’s called ‘The Big Ask’ and aims to find out children’s concerns and aspirations about the future. There are two surveys, a pupil survey and adult survey and we would encourage you and your children to share your views. The results will help the Children’s Commissioner identify barriers preventing children reaching their potential, put forward solutions and set ambitious goals for the country to achieve.
Friday 30 April - St Francis House Winners Treat
Your daughter’s hard work contributed to St Francis being the winning house last term. To reward this great achievement, we would like to invite her to our ‘Picnic and Games on the Field’ treat on Friday 30 April from 4pm - 5pm. A picnic tea will be provided but girls are welcome to bring their own packed tea if they wish. The form has been emailed home to all the parents of St Francis girls but please find the Google Online Form here for completion by Tuesday 27 April.
Parent Evenings Summer 2021
Parents’ Meetings will take place a little earlier this term and will be via Google Meet. The meeting will take place throughout the weeks beginning 26 April and 3 May. Please see the link below for your daughter’s class and type your name next to your chosen time. The class teacher will then send you a Meet link for your appointment.
