Sex and Relationship Programme

Sex and Relationship Programme

28th June 2016 Dear Parents, Year 3 The Archdiocese is keen for all schools to teach a “Sex and Relationship programme” based fully on the teaching of the Catholic Church. As a Catholic school we believe that we should support parents in helping children towards an understanding of their gender and its implication for successful relationships. To give you an insight as to what the children will be learning, you are cordially invited to attend a parents meeting on Wednesday 6th July 2016 at 3.30 pm to talk about the teaching programme “Journey in Love.” Yours Sincerely Mrs A Gallagher Executive Headteacher
Strike Action

Strike Action

28th June 2016 Dear Parents/Carers, Members of the NUT will be taking industrial action because of the lack of funding in education on the 5th of July 2016. The action which is a one day strike will result in class closures at St Joseph’s. The decision to keep the school only partially open is never taken lightly, but in this instance, where staff have elected to take lawful industrial action, I have no choice but to take appropriate steps to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of all pupils. We are aware that this will inconvenience parents and carers and so I am writing to give you advance notice of the impact of the action on this school. Due to the numbers of staff taking part in this action the only classes in school on this day will be Blue Class, Rainbow Class, and 4A Any trips that were arranged for this day will have to be rearranged. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Yours sincerely Mrs A Gallagher Executive Headteacher
