Can we remind you that your child's application for High School needs to be completed by 31st October. If you miss the deadline your application will be classed as late and your child may not get their first choice of High School.
Message from Mrs Brocklesby
Pope Francis has designated today Friday 27th October as a day of prayer, fasting and penance for peace in troubled areas of our world. He is thinking especially of those caught up with the situation in Israel and Gaza. Please take this opportunity to come together as a family and pray for peace.
God of peace, bearer of hope,
we seek your help
for the people caught up in conflict.
Quiet the clamour of war
and guide us towards peace.
Where there is hatred and division
sow seeds of calm and openness.
Where there is destruction
help us to rebuild.
Where children are crying
bring an end to tears.
Shelter your peoples and protect them
Guide them and keep them from harm.
Show us how to break down the barriers of history and fear
and breathe whispers of hope.
Linda Jones / CAFOD
Regular attendance at school means that your child will make the most of their education and improve their chances later on in life. At St Ambrose, good attendance is of high importance and we strive to have at least 96% attendance. Please help us with this target. If you need any support, then school is here to help so that your child can get the very best out of the education we provide.
We will continue sending out regular push notifications about attendance so that you are aware if you child falls below our 96% target and we are working with Louise Howles, our Education Welfare Officer to support us with improvements.

Mr Parry and the wonderful Tosca come to visit Nurture this Monday afternoon.
He was extremely calm, relaxed and very friendly. Those who came along, all enjoyed time with Tosca on their lap, while Mr Parry answered any questions that the children asked about Tosca and some of us even got a chance to give him a treat. We’re really looking forward to welcoming Tosca back into school on Monday 13th November.
