Cardinal Pole Catholic School - Autumn Term 1 Newsletter
Welcome to Cardinal Pole's Good News
This term we have had many highlights from welcoming our new Year 7s into our school, our Open Evening and celebrating Black History Month. It has been a successful and eventful start to the year and I would like to thank the staff for their organisation of activities and events for Black History Month. Our students have displayed a huge amount of enthusiasm and pride in celebrating Black History.
As a school community, we have been reflecting upon the contribution of Black figures and using this time to engage meaningfully with Black History and culture in the form of books by Black authors, student presentations on Black History and culture as well as the much-appreciated talks by members of staff and guests.
We look forward to the exciting opportunities and successes this academic year has in store for us.
We hope you have a restful break and wish you and your family well.
Mr Adam Hall, Headteacher
