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.
