Message from the Head of Schools


It has been another busy week of learning at Holy Cross.


Please make an appointment for our parent-teacher consultation evening next week - teachers are available to meet with you on Tuesday 2nd and Wednesday 3rd October 3.30-6.30 pm.


Key Stage 1



This week year 2s have looked carefully at number patterns. We counted in 2s and noticed that each number has 2, 4, 6, 8 or 0 ones! What patterns have you noticed?


Have a lovely weekend.


Mrs Potterton



Please remember that your ParentPay Account MUST NOT go into debit.  Please ensure that you always have sufficient monies within your account at all times.  We are continually having to chase debtors which is both costly and time consuming.





Lateness matters

Remember that the school day

starts at 8.50am and that the school is open from 8.30am for early learning. 




Tuesday 2nd October

&  Wednesday 3rd October


Booking is now open on eSchools for our Parent/Teacher

Consultation Evenings. Remember to sign up for an appointment with your child’s class teacher.  This is an important opportunity to find out how your child has started their new academic year and how they


are settling into their new classroom setting.  It is also a useful way of finding out how to discuss ways you might support them at home. Your eSchool login will be in the format of: -


Username: first name.surname (e.g. paul.cotter)


Password: This will be the password that you have created.


 Please contact the school office if you have any issues with making a booking or if you need a password reminder.




Liturgy in School

Please join us for whole school liturgy on Monday at 9.00 am.  

The theme for our prayer and worship this week is:






Dear Jesus, help me to use every part of me to bring your love to the people I meet today.








A joyful and faith-filled event for all the family!

 Notre Dame School, Looseleigh Lane, Plymouth PL6 5HN
