We do hope that after Christmas we may be able to start offering some extra-curricular clubs again. We appreciate how difficult it is for parents to provide these kind of activities outside school.
St Teresa’s offer a number of extra curricular clubs, providing pupils with fun activities, extra skills and development opportunities. Continue reading “Extra Curricular Activities”

Please Note – During the COVID 19 PANDEMIC we have had to cancel our Breakfast and After School Clubs. We are however, looking into alternative provision via bubbles and will let you know as soon as we are able to offer any after school childcare arrangements.
Wraparound care including the breakfast and after school clubs are led by the Governing Body and School senior leadership team and operated by established members of staff who are well known to pupils. Continue reading “Wraparound Care”
Children are expected to look smart at all times in school.
Please note that during the COVID 19 pandemic, we are not insisting on children wearing school uniform if parents are unable to get this washed and dried and are unable to provide clean clothes for their child each day. However, we note that most parents have still dressed their children in uniform, which is really great to see and we thank you for this.
PLEASE NOTE: We are advised that windows and doors need to remain open to allow air flow and help prevent the spread of COVID 19. We are adhering to this advice but it does make the school a much cooler environment. Our advice would be to put layers of clothing on your children which they are able to take on or off, depending on the temperature. Thank you for your support and understanding during these unusual times.
