Our children are great at making daily use of the school mission statement. It trips off their tongues so easily and is accompanied by their beautiful signing. But what does it really mean for them and how does the charism of St Vincent de Paul influence their daily life in school? Check out our recently premiered charism film here: As always, our young people can always teach us a thing or two. It is often so humbling to hear them talking of their faith so naturally, entwined with their very being and reflected in their interactions at school and beyond. They talk with such passion about what it means to be a person of faith and how this impacts upon their lives in the classroom, at home and in the wider community and are so keen to make a difference in the world. It gives me great pleasure to watch this: our children are our future and the world is in their safe hands! Thanks be to God!
Usually at this time of the year I am busy showing families around the school, as parents engage with that important decision about selecting a school place for their nursery or reception aged child. This is usually an opportunity to get a real feel for the school in action, to see the interactions between peers and between children and adults and simply to 'feel' the school. There are usually lots of questions on a range of topics to keep me on my toes! It is sad that this is not possible this year due to Covid-19 restrictions. With this in mind, we have produced two virtual tours - one for nursery and one for reception to help you to get a feel for the school. Nursey applications (for children born between 1st Sep 2017 and 31st Aug 2018) opened on 03/09/20 and close on 27/11/20. The nursery tour is available here: Reception applications (for children born between 1st Sep 2016 and 31st Aug 2017) open on 2/11/20 and close on 15/01/21. The reception tour is available he
