Week beginning: 6th July

“Lord God of Israel, there is no God in heaven above or on earth below like You, who keep Your covenant and mercy with Your servants who walk before You with all their hearts.

1 Kings 8: 23


Dear School Community,

As we approach the end of a very strange school year, we are thankful to be part of the St. Mark’s community and for God’s faithfulness during this time. Thank you again, for your willingness to engage with us with the website and the learning that has moved on line.

Since last week, you should have been receiving calls from the class teacher and by the end of this week; you will be sent the end of year reports as well as the name of the teacher for next year. The reports are built on the interim reports that you were sent last term. There will be a date at the end of each report, which will state when the class teacher is available to discuss the report, so you will be able to call in if you need to.

We continue to be open for:

  • Children of critical workers
  • Vulnerable pupils: those with an EHCP, with a Social Worker, or those with vulnerability to whom the school have decided to offer a childcare place.

If you have created rainbow pictures in support of key workers, please keep them, as we will form a display of artwork and writing to remind us of our experiences during lockdown.

Dear God,

Thank you God for your blessing.

Bless everyone that is suffering from coronavirus.

I pray for people to have strength and faith so they can accomplich true happiness in their life.

Thank you for the teachers and staff for letting us continue to learn in school today, it wouldn’t be possible if we didn’t have them right now.

Thank you for the children I share my bubble with.

 Helpful Hints for Home Learning

Please don’t worry about your children getting behind with learning. You can contact class teachers through the Dojo system or you can ring the school to speak to a teacher. Everyone’s in the same boat, and when things get back to normal we’ll make sure we get everyone back on track.

God bless you and keep you.
