I love this quote! It is so true. Think about how it makes you feel when someone says something kind to you. What are you going to say today? .....
We are missing you!

All the staff here at St Clare's wanted to send you all a special message of love.
03 June 2020
I have just stumbled across these powerful words by Mother Teresa. It is so true - when people say something kind to you or do an act of kindness toward you, it stays with you. I can recall so many kind things that you have said to me or done. These memories are keeping me smiling. When someone is kind to us it makes us feel happy, loved, special and also inspires to be kind towards others ourselves - to pass on that feeling. I know you are spreading that kindness with your families at the moment - keep it up!
Lancashire County Council Advice
28 May 2020
You will no doubt be aware of the new advice from Lancashire County Council. Below is a letter from Dr Sakthi Karunathini who is the Director of Public Health and Wellbeing for Lancashire County Council. Advice to schools on reopening to more pupils Summary Lancashire County Council is advising schools in the county not to open to more pupils from 1 June, but instead to continue with the current arrangements. This is because, in our assessment, we do not currently meet all five of the government's tests in Lancashire which would allow this decision to be taken safely. We will regularly review the situation and provide further advice so that we can advise schools to open to more pupils as soon as we judge it safe to do so. Consequently, our advice to schools is to not re-open to more pupils on June 1st, but to continue with their current support systems that are in place. The safety and wellbeing of children, their families, and school staff outweigh the benefits of opening schools of 1st June. What does this mean for St Clare's Catholic Primary School? We will continue to support our key worker families in school. If you now find yourself in a situation that your circumstances have changed then please complete the request form and return it to school. You will see a 'tab' on the school website home page that will direct you to that form. Please return this as a matter of urgency, so that we can ensure we have appropriate staffing in place for Tuesday 2nd of June. Staff will continue to set work for the children across the school which they will put up on your child's blog page. This will continue as a three week rolling program - two weeks of specific work for your child's class and then a week to 'breathe' with a whole school approach. As there is an INSET day on Monday 1st of June, the work will be available on Tuesday 2nd of June. If you have any concerns regarding the work set then you will able to contact staff on the class email. The messages from you all to staff I know are very much appreciated. You know that they will consistently go the 'extra' mile for our children and we are blessed as a school to have such a dedicated staff. We will continue to monitor this situation and consistently seek and act on advice from Lancashire County Council. Take care, keep safe and God Bless, Mrs Charnley and the staff of St Clare's
The Feast of the Ascension of the Lord
21 May 2020
Today’s readings describe the Ascension of the Lord Jesus his Heavenly glory after promising to send the Apostles the Holy Spirit as the source of Heavenly power and commanding them to bear witness to Him through their lives and preaching throughout the world. But the ascended Jesus is still with us because of His promise, "I am with you always; yes, to the end of time.” He is with us at all times and in all places, releasing a new energy upon the earth, the energy of the Holy Spirit. Try to follow mass at St Clare's at 10am as we would have done as a whole school and parish together celebrating this special day.
