“We live our lives like Jesus”

Corpus Christi News

23rd February 2024


Dear Parents and Carers,

Thank you for your responses to our Parent Survey—we had 54 responses  with parents sharing a variety of views and opinions about our school.   We have reflected on the comments and outcomes and are aiming to respond to some of the issues raised, however we are delighted that the overwhelming response from parents was positive and supportive of the school.  Over the next few weeks, I will outline our response to comments raised.


We know communication can be frustrating and have aimed to streamline how we communicate with parents;

Going Forward,

  • Our newsletter will be shorter with just key information—eg up-coming dates; PE days; Good Shepherds, Reading Champions and other awards.
  • We will post the newsletter to Corpus Christi News on the website so it can be translated easily.
  • We will post on Facebook all that our classes have been up to each week. You may have noticed that we have already posted WOW moments from last half term.
  • Each half term we will send home a Curriculum Overview so you know what the children are learning.  This can also be found on the Class Pages (Children tab) of the  School’s Website
  • Short messages will be sent via the APP—please make sure you do sign up for it—the office can help.
  •  Our website calendar will be kept up to date so you can check events of that as well.
  • We will email out promotions eg Holiday Clubs or Parent Workshops as appropriate.


For anyone who would prefer paper copies please do let the office know and we will ensure communication will be printed off for you , which can be collected from the office.


Parent Consultations 

Parents will have an opportunity to meet their child/ren’s class teacher on Monday 4th or Wednesday 6th March to discuss their progress and raise any concerns. These will be face to face meetings in the School hall. Each consultation will last no more than 10 minutes. 

World Book Day in School - 11th March "Crazy about Books" This year we are going to be 'crazy about books'. Children can dress up as a character they are crazy about, wear crazy colours, have a crazy hairstyle or wear crazy socks!


Staff Changesas parents are aware Mrs Cope retired before half term. Despite 3 attempts at recruiting someone to replace her we have been unable to find the perfect person to step into her shoes and are still searching,   Whilst we recruit, we have put the following arrangements in place.

Miss Clark will pick up day to day  management of SEND. We will also be welcoming Mrs Sarah Hounsell  and Tracey Rowsell, who will be supporting us  by monitoring the provision and support for pupils with an EHCP or are on our SEND register.

What do parents do if they are worried about their child?......

1. Parents should initially contact their child’s class teacher if they are worried about their child/ren.  This can be done via the office or by using where a message will be passed onto the teacher.

2. Parents can ask to speak to the SEND team or email,uk  if they have a specific question covered by the SEND umbrella—this could be concerns about academic achievement; worried about a child’s emotional well-being or behaviour.  Miss Clark will monitor these emails and the appropriate person will respond  during school working hours.

3. Make an appointment to speak with Miss Clark, Head teacher.
