  • 20/03/2022: Holy Hour For Ukraine

    Fri 18 Mar 2022 Cat Gillies

    As the war in Ukraine continues, our diocesan community is continuing to respond to the crisis in a number of ways, which we thought would be helpful to share.

     

    Bishop John urges us to keep Ukraine in our prayers and to continue supporting those affected by the war in whatever practical ways we can.

     

    This Sunday (20th March), he will be leading a Holy Hour at Salford Cathedral, inviting people across the diocese to join him in praying for peace. The Holy Hour will begin at 2.30pm and will also be streamed online at www.salfordcathedral.co.uk for anyone unable to attend in person.

  • 03/03/2022: World Book Day

    Tue 01 Mar 2022 Cat Gillies

    World Book Day is this Thursday 3rd March.  

     

    We have a range of exciting events taking place all week in school, and this culminates on Thursday when KS3 students have been invited to dress as a character from Gothic literature. 

     

    Over the last three weeks, they have been shown lots of exciting characters they could emulate, and school would be very grateful for a donation to school funds of £1 per student. 

     

    There will also be lots of treats available on the day including a bake sale (nut free), so please do not forget to bring some money to join in the fun. 

  • Friday 11/02/2022: Non-Uniform Day

    Thu 10 Feb 2022 Cat Gillies

    On Friday 11th February pupils and staff are invited to come to school in non-uniform clothes, and to donate a £1 to the charity 'Bags for Strife', who support families dealing with suicide.

     

    Find out more at:

    www.bagsforstrife.co.uk

     

    Donate online at:

    https://www.justgiving.com/bagsforstrife

     

    'Worlds were torn apart in a way that so many people experience when they lose someone they love, but what became clear was that when you are bereaved by suicide it comes with its own unique experiences and feelings.

    Feelings of Blame Anger Guilt and Sadness are constant and recurring for us and our nearest and dearest.

    So the idea for support kits, or BAGS, specifically for those bereaved by suicide was born to provide solace, support, reassurance and practical advice in the aftermath of a loss through suicide.

    Often any advice given is when those affected aren't able to process the information they end up needing the most –the BAGS will be there when people need them; weeks, months or years later.'

  • ** WE ARE OPEN **

    Fri 07 Jan 2022 Cat Gillies

    We have carefully assessed the conditions around the school site, and will be opening as normal on Friday 07/01/2022.

  • EXTREME WEATHER

    Thu 06 Jan 2022 Cat Gillies

     

    THURSDAY 06/01/2022

    We have reviewed the current weather conditions; the forecast; the local bus services and road conditions, and have decided to keep school OPEN to pupils today, and to close at the NORMAL TIME.

     

     

    FRIDAY 07/01/2022

    We will continue to monitor the situation overnight, and a decision about whether to open the site on Friday will be made early tomorrow morning.

    We will share this decision as early as possible (hopefully by 6.30am), through our usual channels:

    Website (https://www.allsaintshigh.lancs.sch.uk/)

    Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/All-Saints-Roman-Catholic-High-School-112515557078241/)

    Email to parents/ guardians

    Email to staff

    It is likely that the school site may be closed tomorrow, so we would ask all families and staff to please check these media before setting off for school.

    If the site is closed staff will be asked to work from home (where possible) and as much as possible to provide online learning materials to pupils via Show My Homework and Teams. 

     

     

    If the site is open pupils will be expected to attend as usual, or to report absences via the usual methods:

    Attendance Officer (regarding pupil absences)

    Telephone: 01706 233 707

    Email: attendance@allsaintshigh.lancs.sch.uk

     

    We are experiencing a high volume of communications at this time, so please bear with us if we are unable to answer your query immediately.

  • Headteacher Letter - School Expectations

    Tue 14 Dec 2021 Cat Gillies

    14th December 2021

     

    Dear Parent/Carer,

     

    Thank you for your support in maintaining our high standards and expectations. It is important that we continue with the same drive in our second term. As a parent or carer, you are your child’s first and most important teacher. 

     

    Many pupils struggled during the lockdown and we are finding that we need to provide tailored support to help a variety of issues. Now that they are back into the routine of school we need to reinforce the right behaviours in our pupils, so that they can be successful. Both parents and teachers want the same thing for our children - the best possible education. When we all work together we make a strong team. 

     

    Here are some ideas for helping the school do a better job:

    • See that your child attends school regularly.
    • Monitor your child’s subject books and homework.
    • Support the school in its efforts to maintain proper discipline. Try to establish clear, consistent rules for behaviour at home.  This helps pupils adjust to specific rules for the classroom or school.
    • Be aware of what your child is learning in school.
    • Let the Form Tutor know if your child has any problems outside of school that might affect his or her schoolwork.
    • If you have any concerns or questions do share them with us.

     

    The conduct we want in all our pupils:

    • To arrive in school and to all lessons on time and in full uniform, worn correctly. Pupils are ambassadors of the school and are expected to dress and behave in a way that reflects the standards we seek to achieve.  The uniform should be smart with all items clearly marked with your child’s name. 
    • Always respond positively to instructions from members of staff.
    • Must be mindful to always give respect to others as you would want to receive it.
    • Must not do, or say anything that makes others feel unsafe or threatened.
    • Must be equipped and ready to learn.
    • Must work to the best of their ability and must not distract themselves or others.
    • Must develop their personal resilience by:
    • Accepting that they will mistakes and that things won’t always go their way.
    • Co-operating and compromising so as to seek other solutions to the situations or problems.
    • Always keep trying and never give up.
    • Always be prepared to accept responsibility for their choices, apologise and be reconciled.

     

    In light of the government guidance, we are looking at our current policy on mobile phones and at the cost of our uniform. In the newsletter there is a link to a survey on mobile phone usage. Could you spend time completing this.

     

    We appreciate your support in this matter and should you have any concerns, please contact the school.

     

    Yours sincerely,

                           

    Mr B McNally

    Head teacher

  • ** UPDATED 07/12/2021 URGENT: PARTIAL SCHOOL CLOSURE **

    Tue 07 Dec 2021 Cat Gillies

    Dear All Saints' Community,

     

    I regret to inform you that due to an extremely high number of staff absences - many related to Coronavirus - I have had to take the decision to close the school to a number of Key Stage 3 pupils, on a rota basis.

     

    * THE CLOSURES WILL COME INTO EFFECT FROM WEDNESDAY 8TH DECEMBER 2021, and will run up to and including Monday 13th December 2021. *

     

    Key Stage 3 pupils are planned to be educated on-site/ educated at home as follows.

    • Tuesday 7th  December: Year 8  in school; Years 7 and 9 at home.
    • Wednesday 8th December: Year 9 in school; Years 7 and 8 at home.
    • Thursday 9th December: Year 7 in school; Years 8 and 9 at home.
    • Friday 10th December: Year 8 in school; Years 7 and 9 at home.
    • Monday 13th December: Year 9 in school; Years 7 and 8 at home.

     

    Pupils who are not in school will be provided with online learning through Microsoft Teams and/ or Show My Homework - class teachers will inform pupils of the details directly.

     

    * For YEARS 10 and 11 school will be OPEN AS NORMAL: pupils will be expected to attend lessons on-site unless a parent or carer has notified the Attendance Officer of an authorised absence. *

     

    The closure is expected to last up to and including Monday 13th December, but it will be reviewed daily and the community will be informed of the actual re-opening date as early as possible.

     

    I assure you that this decision has not been taken lightly, and I apologise for the short notice provided and inconvenience to families.

     

    If you need to contact the school please email us at office@allsaintshigh.lancs.sch.uk, and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.

     

    Yours sincerely,

    Mr B McNally

    Headteacher
