Whole school information and important updates are published under 'Latest News'. This can be accessed under the 'Parents' tab and the most recent updates will be displayed on our homepage and Twitter feed. Please follow @stjoescardiff.
Each class page provides an overview of the skills the children will learn during the year and our expectations. In Key Stage 2, half-termly homework projects will also be displayed at the bottom of each class page and updated throughout the year. Children are to use Bug Club and Mathletics at home to support their learning on a weekly basis. If you are unable to access Bug Club at home, please ask your child's class teacher for a reading book and reading record.
The children will also be tested on their spellings throughout the year. Spellings and test dates for KS2 are shown at the bottom of each class page. The children are expected to learn their spellings in preparation for each test.
Photos are displayed for each class in the gallery. These can be found under the 'Gallery' tab. Under each set of photos will be a written description of what the children have been doing in class during the week. This replaces the weekly newsletter and will make it easier for parents to follow their child's learning journey.
TheSchoolApp is used to instantly send school notifications to mobile devices. To stay up to date with the latest school news and see upcoming events, parents are required to download the app. Instructions on how to do this can be found under the 'Parents' tab.
Article 14: You have the right to follow your own Religion.
Pupils in our school are growing to be curious about everything and try to change the world for the better. Curiosity is needed for children to want to learn. Our school challenges pupils to use what they learn to make small differences, so that they are ready for the day when they can make a big difference.
We pray for our world
and ask that your Spirit might give strength to those who speak out for justice and work for peace.
We ask for your Spirit’s inspiration for all who seek to support vulnerable children and young people,
that all may flourish and have life to the full.
Help us to be open to the work of your Holy Spirit in our lives,
that we may have the courage to speak out and act on your behalf.
In the name of Jesus we pray.
