St. Bernadette's Feast Day 

Friday 16th April 

 

We had a wonderful time today celebrating St. Bernadette's Feast Day.  Across the school, there was lots of learning and a range of activities taking place in all of the classes. This ranged from art activities, newspaper reports, research and some children in Year 5 and 6 learned how to sign our school song, We are St. Bernadette's. A fantastic day had by all!

Lent

On Ash Wednesday - 17th February, we entered the season of Lent. 

Lent is the period of 40 days before Easter in the Christian calendar. It is a time of reflection as we prepare to remember the passion and death of Jesus, before celebrating his glorious resurrection on Easter Sunday. 

To prepare ourselves, we focus on the three pillars of Lent - Prayer, Good Deeds and Fasting.

UPDATE: St. Bernadette's Walked for Water!

Thank you to all who took part in CAFOD's Walk for Water during February half term. Your incredible generosity means that we were able to send an amazing £587.50 to support communities across the world without easy access to fresh water. 

On Saturday 20th February, we are asked to join CAFOD’s Lenten campaign by going for a walk in solidarity with people who have to walk long distances to collect clean water for their families. We hope that we can raise money as a school family, which we will then send to CAFOD to support their invaluable work in bringing easy access to water for such communities.  

If your child and your family do take part in the walk and would like to donate to CAFOD, you can do this by making a donation through School Gateway Payments. If you are happy to share photos of your walk with the school and with CAFOD, please do email them over to Mrs Pughe along with the completed consent form that has been sent out previously.

HOPE - A Carol Service for 2020

 

The whole school community worked together to retell the story of the nativity through singing, acting and scripture. We are very proud of the wonderful talents of our children. We hope that you have a blessed Christmas and a healthy New Year. 

Religious Education

 

Come and See is the Religious Education (RE) programme recommended by the Bishops of England and Wales and provides the basis for RE lessons throughout the school. This curriculum was launched in September 2012. It gives children a lively and engaging curriculum where they are able to learn through a variety of experiences and activities.
Besides the formal RE syllabus, every opportunity is taken to ensure the message of the Gospel is in all the work of the school. Our
Christian Values Curriculum gives our children a clear understanding of the Christian values we hope they will adopt in their everyday life.

 

Religious Education plays a central and vital part in the life of faith in our Catholic school. It is the foundation for all learning and as such is the core subject in our school. We believe firmly that RE permeates every aspect of our curriculum, as, by helping children to understand more fully the world around them, they will come to a deeper understanding of God and of their fellow human beings. This vision shapes the daily life of our school as a community.

Although parents/carers are entitled to withdraw their child from religious education and worship, we encourage all children to participate in RE lessons, assemblies and daily acts of worship.


We firmly believe we are a school community and would hope all children would want to participate in the life of the school.As a Catholic school, we aim to provide a Catholic education for all our pupils. As a Catholic school, Catholic doctrine and practice permeate every aspect of the school’s activity. It is essential that the Catholic character of the school’s education be fully supported by all families in the school.  We therefore hope that all parents will give their full, unreserved and positive support for the aims and ethos of the school.

 

If alternative arrangements are required this must be discussed with the Headteacher.
