Ambitious | Courageous | Empowered
Hello and welcome to the Holy Family Blog!
After taking on board feedback from those who attended the Parent Governor Coffee Morning hosted by Mr Holdsworth (our Chair of Governors), we wanted to improve the way we communicate with our parents.
Having spent a great deal of time developing our school website, it is now a hub of up to date information and resources!
To ensure we utilise our website to the full, we have decided to replace the school newsletter with a blog. The blog will be updated weekly and parents will be sent a link to the latest post. We hope you will find the new format informative and useful.
On the blog we will aim to bring you a round up of our week in school, information about up and coming events and an insight into what's been going on. For key school dates throughout this half term, please continue to refer to our Key Dates for Parents.
Have a great weekend,

Wow, already at the end of another half-term. I’m sure you will all agree it has really flown by. First of all I’d like to extend a warm thanks to you all for supporting us as a school at our Spring Fayre. A wonderful time was had by all and you could really feel the sense of community in the air. Many burgers and doughnuts were washed down with some of Mr Dickerson’s drinks, although he may need a bit of practice before the Summer Fayre. A great effort was made by all the classes and well done to the children for working so hard and making such excellent products. Now for some behind the scenes fayre related news. Mr Dickerson’s stall would have been an absolute disaster if it had not been for the intervention of Mrs Holdsworth, who when the delivery did not arrive, went to the shop and saved the day! So from everyone at Holy Family, thank you! Also a big thank you to all the staff and parents who helped man and close the event. So far the total raised is over £900.

Another week comes to a close at Holy Family. There is much to tell you all about next week, as we are all very excited due to Friday 18th’s INSET Day where there is no school.

There is never a dull moment at Holy Family but, few weeks are as exciting as this one. It was Miss Monkman’s favourite time of the year. World Book Day (WBD). Gone we’re our ordinary teachers as Wizards, Witches, Queens, Cats and even a Demi-God.

This week we were very excited to welcome back the children after a very windy half-term holiday! Over the holiday Mr Benstead worked very hard over the week to help install some lovely new windows which you can see around the school. As we start our new topics for this half-term we have had some wonderful immersion days; Year 3 examined owl pellets under a microscope which students described as “exciting yet disgusting”, in Year 6 they dissected animal hearts in order to learn about how they work which was “fascinating as we had the opportunity to open them up and learn how the ventricles worked” and in Reception they went on a Giant hunt, they collected a giant’s chocolate and found a letter where the kind giant let them keep his letter “it was scary when the giant stepped over us!”.

Have a great weekend!
