Prayer for uncertain times

Lord Jesus Christ, light of this world, thank you for the hope that you have given us.

Help us to give our worries to you and, above all, to trust in Your unfailing love.

For You have promised us "Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you."

Almighty God, our protector, let us trust in You to carry us through this time of uncertainty.

Jesus, hear our cries as we mourn those who've left us.

Whatever tomorrow may bring, we will praise Your name.

A Prayer for Ukraine

Loving God,

We pray for the people of Ukraine,

for all those suffering or afraid,

that You will be close to them and protect them.

We pray for world leaders,

We pray for the world

we may reach out in solidarity

Government guidance for parents

Regular attendance and punctuality is important to secure academic achievement. Attendance at school is mandatory and it is the parents’ duty to make sure that their child of compulsory school age regularly attends. As a school we expect 96% attendance (as a minimum) for each pupil. There will, however, be circumstances where pupils cannot attend due to ill health.
