This year we will be saying goodbye to our Y6 children. They have been a fabulous class and excellent role models, buddies and school leaders as they have searched faithfully for excellence in all they do. We are also very proud of all their academic achievements. We say goodbye to Esme, Abigail, Maja, James, Jenson, Ruby-Jo, Ethan, Elliot, Cian, Emily, Ronnie, Evie, James, Bella, Evie, Scarlett, Ffion, Filip, Linoshan, Pharrell, George, Isla, Cereza, Lucas, Amy, Brodie, Thomas, Ethan, Noah,  Oliver and Maxx. While some of the children have siblings still with us in school, this will be a final farewell to the Dabrowska, Day, Doyle, Doyle, Glazzard, Grinsill-Clinton, Hubery, Hulse, Johnson, Kuzniak, Mortlock, Parry, Smallwood, Smith, Turner and Waller families. We have been so happy to be part of this journey. You will all remain in the prayers of the school.

It is with sadness that next week we will say goodbye to Mrs Machen and Miss Castleton. It is also with sadness that we will be saying good bye to Mrs Roper, our longstanding school cook, who will also be leaving us. I am sure you will join us in wishing them all the best in their futures.

A message from Mrs Evans and Mrs Janvier… 

As we approach the end of another school year, we would like to say thank you. This has been a year filled with happy memories and remarkable achievements. First and foremost, we want to express our deepest appreciation to our children. Each one of you has contributed so much to school this year and we are immensely proud of your achievements. We would also like to extend our thanks to you as
parents and guardians who have supported our children throughout this academic year. Your commitment to your children's education, your involvement in school life, and your encouragement have been instrumental in their success. The children, families, staff and governors of Our Lady and St. Joseph's will live forever in our hearts.

We wish you all a safe and enjoyable summer break. We will miss you all next year. 
Mrs Evans and Mrs Janvier
