AFTER SCHOOL CLUB ONLINE BOOKING available from 24th October 2018


We are moving to an online booking system for After School Club.  The new system, which will be available to parents via the Schoolgateway app, will go live on 24th October 2018.

Both the manual booking system we currently use and the online system will run alongside each other for a period of transition.  From January 2019 the online booking system will be the only way parents can book After School Club.

Charges will remain the same and parents will be expected to pay when they make a booking.

There will be a limited number of spaces available every day (Monday 30 places, Tuesday 30 places, Wednesday 40 places, Thursday 30 places and Friday 30 places).  Bookings will be taken on a first come, first served basis.

Online bookings will close at 1.00pm – this will allow for any necessary adjustments in staffing, etc.

If you need to book a place after 1.00pm on the same day of booking, you will need to telephone the school office.  We will always do our utmost to accommodate all children needing a place in After School Club.

If you have any questions, please email or

School Building Fund – please consider making a regular donation.

Dear Parents and carers.

St Aloysius Catholic Primary School is a Voluntary aided school. This means that the school has to provide 10% of any funding provided by the Government for capital projects (e.g. building work)

I am therefore writing to ask you to consider making a regular donation to the school. This will allow us to build a savings fund to call on immediately, whenever we need to undertake a building project in school, rather than having to rely on further fundraising. It will allow us to plan ahead for refurbishment and improvement on a sound financial footing

Please read the Building fund letter  via the link below.  A standard order and Gift Aid form is also provided below.

Thank you

Message from Miss Duncan our new Deputy Head

A message from our New Deputy Headteacher Miss Duncan

Thank you to those who have already made me feel so welcome at St Aloysius’. I am excited to be the new Deputy Head here. I have moved here from St Mary’s in Bicester where I was a member of the Senior Leadership Team. Prior to that I worked in an International School in Houston, Texas and I have also taught in a primary school in Buckinghamshire.

I will be teaching in Year 4 this year but I am looking forward to leading assemblies and working with children and parents from across the whole school.

When I am not at school, I play netball and enjoy reading and swimming. I also like to travel and visit new places.

Message from Mr Walker about KS1 teaching

Mrs Kempton

I am writing to inform you that Mrs Kempton will be leaving St Aloysius’ at the end of the Autumn Term to take up a position at St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School in Headington.

Mrs Kempton has a very long association with St Aloysius’, having had children at the school herself and then working here for many years, first as a Teaching Assistant then, for the last eight years as a Teacher across the primary age range. She has been the lead for English at the school for the last four years and has co-ordinated PE as well as Outdoor Learning. She also sits on the Governing Body as Staff Governor. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Sophie for all her hard work and wish her all the very best in her new position ‘up the road’. We will shortly be advertising for a teacher for Fir Class to start in January 2019.

Thursday 21st June

Lots of coins can go a long way. Your spare change can make a big difference to our climbing frame appeal.

In the spirit of the World Cup, our GOAL is to line up all our spare coins, from every child in the school, along the football pitch in the playground. We are sure with all your loose change we will be ONSIDE to secure the ultimate TROPHY of a Brand New Climbing Frame.

Can each child bring their coins in a named bag to school next Thursday (or before and leave in the school office). If you have a lot of coins weighing you down then let the office take the burden from you and larger donations can be left with them. It would be fantastic to cover the playground in coins and have every child feel that they have contributed to the new climbing frame.
