Dear Parents/Carers, 

As we approach the Feast Day of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, I thought it fitting to share with you the words of our beautiful school hymn. It was written by our brilliant Chaplaincy Team with the support of Dan Callow and always brings a tear to our eyes when we hear the children sing it: 

We learn to live and we learn to care, 

Our hearts are open to love and to share. 

We love each as we know we should, 

And we say yes to God as Mary would. 


Hail Mary, Mother of the Church, 

May we be faith-filled in all we have learnt. 


May we be grateful and always kind, 

And teach us patience whatever we find. 

Help us to grow in the love of our school, 

Mother of Christ lead us to our Lord. 


Hail Mary, Mother of the Church, 

May we be faith-filled in all we have learnt. 


Through our actions both big and small, 

Our Lady of Mount Carmel cares for us all. 

Our faith be strengthened, our friendships grow, 

We’re proud of our school and let everyone know. 


Hail Mary, Mother of the Church, 

May we be faith-filled in all we have learnt. 


We are so disappointed that we are unable to hold our annual Feast Day Mass at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church this year but we will be sharing a link to our special virtual Mass led by Fr Jason next week. 

Virtual Sports Day 

As we can’t hold our much-loved traditional sports days this year, we would love as many children (and adults!) to get involved with our virtual sports day on Tuesday next week! Please do send in photos/videos in via our school email – have fun!

Annual Reports 

Our annual reports have now been issued via email (or post) providing information regarding progress in the core curriculum subjects – thank you for the lovely feedback we have received this week! If you would like to discuss anything within the report further, please do contact school via phone/email. 

September Opening 

Further to our update last week, we will be finalising plans for our full reopening of school in September on Monday and hope to provide you with detailed information by the end of next week. Our upmost priority is the safety and wellbeing of all members of our school community. 

Virtual Meet the Teacher 

Our class teachers are very excited about meeting their new classes in September and have been busy creating factfiles to introduce themselves – please do take a look on your child’s new class page to find out more! 

Mental Health and Wellbeing 

As part of our whole school wellbeing project, we would like to ask parents and children to help us create a visual display based on your experiences during lockdown. If you would like to take part, please paint your stone/rock and varnish it to make it weatherproof. Please send it to school in the first week of the autumn term in September. We really look forward to seeing all of your artistic creations! 

This will be a wonderful way to launch our wellbeing week at the start of the new term. We look forward to welcoming the children back into the school community and focusing on themes linked to positive mental and physical health and wellbeing including friendship, reflection, health and fitness, confidence and togetherness. 

Enjoy your weekends! 

Mrs Woods
