Update on Appeals amid Covid-19 April 2020




What we do…

The department has three main roles:

Advise and act for the Bishop and trustees on all matters pertaining to schools and colleges.
Advise and support the schools of the diocese in carrying out their mission as Catholic schools.
Provide information and advice to the Catholic community on the provision of Catholic education and access to it.

Bishop Declan has a special message of thanks for all our Head Teachers in this time of Lockdown.

Primary School’s Leavers Service

As we are not able to celebrate the usual Primary School’s Leaver’s service, we have asked some of our schools to help in having a ‘virtual Service’.
