We are part of the Plymouth CAST family of schools. We are a Catholic school welcoming children of all faiths to learn and grow with us. The education and wellbeing of our children is at the heart of everything we do. Our Gospel Values of humility, compassion, kindness, justice, forgiveness, integrity, peace and courage are integral to our whole school community. We inspire all our children to do their best, be their best and have respect for themselves, others and the world we live in. Choosing a school for your child is really important for any parent or carer. If you would like to find out more about our school you are welcome to visit us to meet or wonderful staff and pupils. Please email admin@stjo.uk or phone 01395 264875 to book an appointment. We look forward to seeing you.

Foundation Stage - Oak and Acorn

Dear Oaks and Acorns,

We hope you are all still doing ok at home and enjoying some time with your family. Life in school is very different at the moment. Mrs Clarke and Miss White are busy teaching the ‘Key worker Oak bubble’, while Mrs Rush is busy in the ‘Key worker Acorn bubble’. Mrs Arthur and Mrs Coleman are busy further up the school teaching the older children! I am busy doing jobs with Mrs Taylor-Bashford as well as keeping in touch with you all on the phone and on Tapestry. If you upload things to Tapestry it really makes us smile just to see your faces.

You should also receive your school report later this week.

Oliver’s vegetables is our focus story for the next two weeks. You can hear me read it on the website / tapestry or you may have your own version at home. I hope you have fun doing some of the activities below.

Take care and stay safe

Mrs Keeping
