Welcome to our School Office


All the latest information and events happening in school can be found on our Parents Pages.  


We are an Eco Green Flag Award School so where possible, we add newsletters and information directly to our website or distribute via email.  We also use electronic data collection, visit and consent forms were possible.     


Our Calendar can be linked to your mobile phone so you keep up to date with activities in school.


We also provide a text messaging service and important information is sent regularly so please inform the school office if your mobile number has been changed.  Unfortunately, texts are only sent to one parent (priority 1) so if you wish a second number to be added to the system then please contact us so we can add this to our second parent text group.


We are a cashless school so all payments to the school are required to be paid via your child's online Squid Account.


Your child's Class Pages will contain information and homework relating to class activities so please check this on a regular basis.  We have also introduced a new Video Sharing Platform which will enable you to view various assemblies/events and activities in school.  Please see the VSP link on the Children Tab or the VSP link on the bottom of our Home Page.


We also have our own Facebook Page (Holy Cross Primary CVA), the link is also located on our Home Page.
