First Steps

Our Parent's and Toddler's Group, First Steps, meets every Wednesday morning from 10.00 a.m. until 12 noon and they welcome all new comers. Come and meet the rest of the gang and let your children meet some others of their own age.

Uniform and PE Kit

Thank you for all your efforts with ensuring we have the highest possible standards of uniform. Helping us to ensure this is maintained supports us all. This means no trainers for normal footwear and sensible accessories, please don't have headwear that stops other children being able to see the teacher! Could I ask you to also ensure that your child's name is on all their pieces of uniform, especially jumpers and coats?It is also very important that all children have the correct PE Kit. They are not allowed to wear football shirts. The PE Kit consists of a white t-shirt with logo, black shorts and a pair of pumps. It is advisable that the juniors have a pair of trainers for outdoor PE. It is best for all children to keep their kit in school and to take it home each half term to be cleaned. It needs to be kept in a named drawstring PE bag.

Lunch

As you are all aware, we are now using the Schoolcomms system for school meals and tuck. Although a lot of parents are set up on the system, we know that a few parents are still experiencing problems.  We're having help from Halton to resolve these small issues and hopefully within the next week or so, everything will be up and running, without any problems.

Just a couple of points to remember. If you change your email address or your mobile number, could you please let us know immediately as the system will not work?  Also, there are two sections on the system: School Meals and Tuck.  As well as crediting the School Meals section, you will need to credit Tuck, if you want your child to have it.

With regard to Universal Free School Meals, if your child is in Year 3, please remember that you will now have to pay for their school dinners, if they are not eligible for Free School Meals. In a few weeks time, we will also put  another section on the system so that you can pay for School Trips etc.  We have had a really positive response from parents so far and the feeling is that it is an easy system to use.  Bear with us and hopefully by next week we will be up and running without any  problems.

Welcome to Father Ravi

I would ask you all to join me in welcoming Father Ravi to the parish of the Divine Saviour and to St. Martin's school in particular. It is very appropriate that Fr Ravi has taken up his place this term as he is from India and Mother Teresa has just been canonized. I know he has many tales to tell of his life in India and we are all looking forward to a long a fruitful relationship with him.

St Martins, Runcorn

Year 3 Sacraments​

Our Year 3 children have now started their Sacramental Programme. It is vital that we have proof of Baptism. If you wish to have your child Baptised please speak to Fr Ravi or Helen Bailey after any 9.00am Sunday Mass and they will help you prepare and make the necessary arrangements.

Parking Outside School

Cheshire Constabulary are asking  everyone to park responsibly. They will be visiting schools to ensure that everyone is kept safe particularly the children. In particular they wish you to take note of the following:

· Do not park on yellow 'zig-zags'

· Do not park in designated bus stops

· Do not obstruct residential driveways or    access to property

· Do not park opposite or in close proximity to a junction, the Highway code recommends leaving a distance of 32 ft/10m, anything less than this can be seen as causing an       unnecessary obstruction

The best advice is to ask yourself, 'Am I risking a child?' not 'Am I risking a ticket?'

Breakfast Club

Our Breakfast Club continues its great work. It is open from 7.30 am – 8.45 am and only costs £2 per child which is great value including their breakfast. Please note the children are not allowed into the school or onto the playground before 8.45am as there is no supervision. If your child arrives at school earlier than this, then they need to go to the Breakfast Club

St Martins, Runcorn

After School Club

Our after school club continues to go from strength to strength. If you want to use this facility please contact Karen Hughes on 07757840673. Infant children will be collected from class while junior children make their own way there.  It takes place immediately after school until 4.30 p.m. and costs £1.50 per child. For this they are supervised and get a drink and a biscuit. This is tremendous value for money. Please take note that due to this provision any child not collected by 3.20pm will automatically be taken to the club and parents will have to pay the fees. All children must be collected by 4.30 p.m. A few children are unsure of their arrangements at the end of the day and this can cause some upset and distress. Please make sure that your child knows what is happening at the end of the day!
