Today is St Alban’s Day
Our school sets huge value on the quality of courage so let’s take a moment to think about St Alban’s courageous act.
St Alban is venerated as the first recorded Christian martyr in England. His death came as a result of him shielding a priest to whom he had given refuge. It is in the nature of this story that it concerns one who gave his life for his values and beliefs.
Though a legend the story embodies something of the vulnerability that is required if we are to act in courage. Alban quite literally cloaks himself with the garment of the one he seeks to protect and, in doing so, takes his place.

Over the Easter holidays Charlie was confirmed at Rotherham Minster. Today in collective worship, he is going to share his experience with the rest of the school.
House Sinai did a great job leading assembly yesterday. They introduced the school to more of our children’s special talents.
Presenting, Cole playing the guitar, Leila, who loves ice skating, Charlotte the hockey master, Ailsa playing the bassoon and Lowri the superb swimmer.
Please remember that if you have a talent or an interest that you would like to share with the school then sign up and post your application in the postbox in the library.
Last week the year 6 underwent a mock SATs week. I have marked their papers and the children will be bringing a sheet home with their results on them. Feel free to pop in and speak to me if you have any questions regarding them – Mr Frelich
Y6 Homework is online now. Sorry it’s a little late this week: the school website has been experiencing issues. It has been on the board since Wednesday so the children know what pages to do – Mr Frelich
On Monday afternoon, St Michael’s Orchestra performed at our school.
The performance was a huge success and left our school feeling inspired and full of Christmas spirit. The band played a variety of songs, including, Starry Night, Jingle Bells and Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer.
Thank you St Michael’s- we hope to visit you very soon.
