Welcome to St Charles’ Voluntary Catholic Academy

**Statement from the St Cuthbert’s Roman Catholic Multi Academy Trust**

 

Following the Prime Minister’s statement on 10th May 2020 we note that for the immediate future, as far as our schools are concerned, nothing has changed.

 

We will continue, as we have done throughout ‘lockdown’, to offer places for a very small number of children who are either the children of key workers or are ‘vulnerable’ children. This will remain the case until half term. In the meantime we will continue to work hard to understand and interpret the regular guidance briefings from the Department for Education and to work with the Local Authority, in partnership with local schools with a view to expanding the number of school places available, when it is safe to do so. 

 

The current advice from central Government is that if the ‘five tests’ have been passed and the ‘R’ level is low enough this could potentially begin in England’s schools next month, starting with Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 children. The extent to which this will apply to the Primary schools in the St Cuthbert’s Roman Catholic Multi Academy Trust will depend upon the local context and the outcomes of our own rigorous  risk assessments. There are currently no specific plans for secondary schools to change the current provision.

 

In the meantime, we will continue to support home learning in the way that we have been doing throughout the ‘lockdown’ period.

 

We thank you for your patience and forbearance during this challenging time and assure you that at the heart of our current planning processes, is the health and safety of all of our children and staff.

 

 

Peter Fearnley

Chair, St Cuthbert's RC Academy Trust

St Charles' Voluntary Catholic Academy is part of the St Cuthbert's Roman Catholic Academy Trust and the family of Hull Catholic Schools.

Our school is a vibrant, culturally diverse, inclusive and friendly academy located in the heart of Hull city centre and serves our local parish St.Charles Borromeo.We strive to accept the mission of Jesus in everything we do - to love, learn and share everyday.

Staff at St.Charles' are invested in providing a rich and broad curriculum that captures children attention, motivates and challenges them across all areas of learning. Children benefit from developed strong links with local sports clubs and are offered a wide range of sporting opportunities at all levels of participation.

Our school is very proud of the links we have with our wider community and work closely with our local Parish Priest Father James and St. Vincent de Paul Society. Parents and carers are regularly welcomed into school to celebrate Mass, enjoy topic days and for children to showcase their learning.

We are so excited plans are underway for a new website as we are part of St Cuthbert’s Roman Catholic Academy Trust. We will let you know when we are ready to move to this during Autumn Term 2019.
