  • From Rags to Riches Appeal for Mary’s Meals – Charity which sets up school feeding programmes where poverty and hunger prevent children from gaining an education.

    Published 15/10/19

     

    The Douay Martyrs Catholic Secondary School community has offered to come together with our local churches to meet the human needs of the above appeal.  Staff, students and parents are invited to donate items of unwanted good clothing (no shoes) for those in desperate circumstances.  Men, women and children’s clothing (of all ages) can be left in the main reception.  In addition to the donated items, if you would prefer to make a financial donation I am more than happy to visit the local charity shops, on your behalf, to purchase clothing. The deadline for collection is Friday 15 November 2019.  All donations are to be placed in main reception.

    Mary’s Meals is a worldwide charity that sets up and supports school feeding programmes where poverty and hunger prevent children from gaining an education.  Amazingly, 4 full sacks of good quality clothing will feed a child one good nutritious meal every school day for a whole year.

    GOD WHO SPEAKS' The Year Of The Word October 2019/2020

    'The God Who Speaks'

    The Year of the Word 

    celebrating, living and sharing God's word

     

    The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales have designated 2020 as 'The God Who Speaks': A Year of the Word to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Verbum Domini - Pope Benedict XVI’s Apostolic Exhortation on ‘The Word of the Lord’, and the 1600th anniversary of death of St Jerome, who translated the Bible into Latin.

    Therefore, this will be a year of celebrating, living and sharing God's word, through a range of events and activities.  We are invited to listen afresh to the

    Word of God as did Our Blessed Lady at the Annunication, to encounter anew the presence of God’s Word, and to proclaim it afresh in the Church and the World.

    Following an impressive set of A-Level results last week, this week it was the turn of Year 11 students to end weeks of trepidation and receive their GCSE results.

Subjects where results were especially strong were English, Religious Studies and Mathematics, with the progress made by our English Studies students in the top 10% nationally.

  • MyEd Email Advice Letter attached

    Published 12/11/18

     

    Some parents/carers are reporting that they are not receiving all emails from The Douay Martyrs Catholic Secondary School. lf this is the case for you, could I please ask that you check your spam/junk folder in the first instance. If you do not find The Douay Martyrs Catholic Secondary School emails in there then please contact snaidoo@douaymartyrs.co. uk so we can investigate further.

    If you find that The Douay Martyrs Catholic Secondary School emails are ending up in your spam/junk folder then ''what you need to do is put The Douay Martyrs Catholic Secondary School in your Safe Senders List. Below are instructions on how to do this if you use Gmail or Hotmail/Outlook.  If you use another email provider then a quick internet search should provide you with instructions on how to do it for your particular email provider. The bulk of emails from The Douay Martyrs School will come from the domain @schools.ps-connect.cloud and from @douaymartyrs.co.uk

    Gmail

    There is no Safe Senders List in Gmail but the easiest way to ensure emails don't end up in spam is to add The Douay Martyrs Catholic Secondary School email addresses to your contacts list.

    Hotmail/Outlook

    Go into the Hotmail/Outlook  settings menu and select "options". On the left hand side you will see a list of options, one of which will be "Junk Mail" and under that "Safe Senders". You will want to add@douaymartyrs.co.uk & @schools.ps-connect.cloud

    The above actions should hopefully prevent your email provider from putting The Douay Martyrs Catholic Secondary School emails into the spam/junk folder. 

    Yours faithfully
