Prayer Vigil for Climate Change

20.09.2019 Students were invited to participate in our prayer vigil for climate change this lunchtime, making hand prints and then adding a prayer for our Common Home on what they had created. Pupils demonstrated great respect during the prayer vigil, which was just one act carried out by our ND community linked to this year’s mission theme of ‘Laudato Si’.

Services for Young People



Plymouth City Council is taking a fresh look at the services on offer for young people in the city aged between 0 and 19 to serve a wider range of age groups and ensure that when young people need support, they have somewhere to go and only have to tell their stories once.  Most people know about children’s centres, and what we do there to cater for 0-5 year-olds.

However, PCC would like some feedback from students as to how they would like the future to look for young people up to the age of 19. It’s really important than any future services are visible and available to schools.

The sort of questions they would like to explore with young people are:

What do you know about the services on offer for young people in Plymouth?
Do you know what kind of support is on offer?
Do you know where to go for that support?
Do you use youth clubs or centres?
What would they like the Council and its partners to provide them with?

How can you help?

We have been in contact with the Police and the Local Authority and have continued to ensure the safety of our pupils and staff. We have policies and procedures in place to cover incidents of this nature. We understand that the Police will continue to investigate who is responsible.

We hope you are all safe and warm and we will be open as usual on Monday.
