School Year 2021-22
The school holiday pattern for 2021-22 is available on the school’s website: www.stmatthewsblackburn.com under ‘Parents – school holidays’. Please do refer to this when booking holidays for next year. Please avoid booking holidays and/or extended leave during term time as this can seriously affect your child’s learning and progress.
The school year draws to a close. It has been a different year in many ways. Through it all, our incredibly committed staff have continued to work tirelessly for the benefit of your children – despite restrictions and difficulties. On your behalf, I would like to thank them all for their continued dedication to your children.
My thanks also go to you, parents and carers. Your support this year, particularly with remote learning, has been fantastic and much appreciated.
Congratulations also to the children for the resilience they have shown this year.
Today we say goodbye to the following members of staff:
The children return to school on Monday 6th September 2021 at 8.35am.
On behalf of all the staff and governors, I’d like to thank you for all your support this year. Stay safe and have a fantastic summer holiday!
