Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have had to change our cluster teacher training day to Friday 9th February 2018 instead of Monday 8th January 2018. This means that the children shall return to school on Monday 8th January 2018 for the Spring Term, instead of Tuesday 9th January 2018. The school shall now be closed to children on Friday 9th February 2018.
Thank you to the children for all their hard work and smiles this year.
Thanks to parents, grandparents and everyone who has given their support in anyway.
Goodbye Miss Cooper, Mrs Mowbray and Ms Dexter – good luck in the next steps of your careers.
An extra special goodbye to Mrs Dryden – you will be a huge miss to St Thomas More! Best wishes for the future.
Mrs Boyle, enjoy your well deserved rest and relaxation! Happy retirement.
And Year 6, we are so proud of you! Well done and good luck at St Leonard’s!
Wishing everyone a relaxing and peaceful summer!

Year 6 children from St Godric’s and St Joseph’s joined our Year 6 children for a transition day, here at St Thomas More. The children got to experience a range of sporting activities and met new friends, who they will be moving on to St Leonard’s with in September.
Well done to Hannah and Jake, who received awards for their special achievements on the day.
St Thomas More children were lucky enough to have Kim Clark in school today, a gymnastics coach who works with national gymnasts. Class 1 had great fun using a variety of apparatus to balance on and create shapes. I’m sure she spotted some budding gymnasts today! The children certainly had great fun.
Please take a moment to look at the Stations of the Cross images that have been created by children at St Thomas More and St Joseph’s.
Thank you to all who joined us in church on Wednesday.
We were very fortunate to spend the day with Adam Bushnell. The day began with a storytelling assembly for the whole school, which included some incredible acting performances from the children. Adam spent the rest of the morning inspiring our Year 5/6 class and he developed their writing skills within their World War II topic. Finally, it was Years 1 and 2 who had the pleasure of Adam’s company in the classroom. During the afternoon, the children explored storytelling and had huge amounts of fun with the Knights and Dragons topic.
The school marked Safer Internet Day 2017 with activities and lessons for all children. A safer internet presentation was also shared with parents – thank you to those who attended.
