As each school year begins, especially if your child has just joined us as a new student regardless of the year group, one of the many concerns you may have is will your child experience bullying and what should you do if it does occur.

As parents and carers you can expect the amount of homework your child receives to increase, particularly the further up the school they progress. It is an expectation that it is completed to the best of your child’s ability and is handed in on time. These after school tasks are not only important in allowing their teachers to be certain that they have understood what was taught in class but it allows your child to build upon what has been covered, discussed and explored.

During the summer, Year 8 student Aimee travelled to Barcelona in Spain to compete in the Dance World Cup.

At St Thomas More we try our utmost to keep you informed of anything happening in school, by mail, text, app and social media. This includes (but not limited to) school updates, attendance monitoring, school reports and student illness.

This edition’s Good Samaritan is Charly who is in Year 9. Our reason for nominating Charly is because whilst eating his lunch recently in our school canteen he discovered that a new Year 7 boy sat near him was not eating anything.
