Good Bye and Thank You
…to Mrs Bailey who is leaving us today. Mrs Bailey has done a brilliant job running the Step Up Project for us over the last 18 months. Sadly the funding for the project is coming to an end in December. Those of you who visit the Pod will still see Mrs Bailey around as she will be starting a new job there.

Teacher Training Day
This Monday, 30th November, school will be closed for teacher training. We will open again as usual on Tuesday 1st December.

Spread the Word
The staff have walked 625 miles so far!  We’re aiming to walk as far as Bethlehem before the end of term. Please share our Just Giving page with all your friends. All proceeds are to support St Vincent’s Parish.

Advent Begins
Sunday is the start of the Church’s new year and the season of Advent.

O Jesus Christ,
Prince of Peace
come and save your people.
Joy of every heart
Strength of those
who are poor
Come, make your home
with us.

Please keep your child at home if they are unwell. If your child or anyone in your house has a temperature or continuous, dry cough, you should get a test by ringing 119 or apply  online here. 8pm in the evening is often a good time to apply. While you are waiting for a test, everyone in your house should isolate.
Please let us know when you get a test result back.

Term Dates 2020-2021
You can see the year’s term dates here. St Vincent’s holidays will be slightly different to other Birmingham schools next year as we will be having a special Easter Celebration. This means a short Easter Holiday and a longer May half term holiday.

For free, safe, anonymous help for young people with mental wellbeing, you can contact Kooth online.
