It is with great sadness that we have to let you know about the loss of Claire Scott, our wonderful friend and colleague. Claire was a huge part of our school since she arrived to work in our office. We know that many of you will remember her as the first person that welcomed you to the school. She knew every family and child in our school and always did her utmost to help everyone. She was a lovely, calm presence around school and nothing was ever too much trouble. She truly was the smiling and warm face of St Francis School. We will miss her greatly and we ask that you keep her family, including her husband and two children in your prayers.

School will be closed next Wednesday, 11th September,  to enable Claire's colleague to attend her funeral. We know that this may cause some inconvenience but we ask for your understanding and prayers.

There will also be a service to celebrate Claire's life on Friday 13th September at 2.30 in school. You are all very welcome to come along.
