Update - 5th February

Only a week to go to half-term! School has been buzzing again this week and we are all longing for the day when everybody can be back together - not too long to wait, I'm sure. Well done to everyone at home for their continued efforts to access home learning: we know it's not easy and whatever you manage to do is great. Fr Ross and Year 2 led a beautiful celebration of the Feast of Candlemas on Tuesday and it was lovely that so many of the children were able to join us online. He left us with the message to let our light shine and I'm sure all the children will continue to do so!


Grayson Perry Art Challenge

The first challenge for the children is on the subject of home/family (they are following the same themes as the TV series). The children are asked to draw/sculpt/collage/paint a scene in the house or a person in their family that has been significant to them during these last few weeks. There are more ideas here:

Message from the Council

Your collective efforts to help lower the number of cases of COVID-19 in Southampton continue to make a difference.


Over 34,000 first doses have been given in Southampton, approximately 13% of the population (latest data as of 2nd February 2021).


This is an incredible effort and in his latest video message the Leader of the Council, Cllr Christopher Hammond, puts on record his thanks to our NHS staff and all those involved in the programme. You can watch that latest video message update on the latest situation in Southampton here.


We need the infection rate to continue to fall as the rollout of vaccines continues at pace.
