    Monday 16th March 2020

    Dear Parent/Carer,

    I am writing to inform you that we have taken the decision to postpone our upcoming parental workshops in both Music (19th March) and English (24th March), in light of concerns over Covid-19. The school are receiving daily updates from the Department for Education on the topic, and whilst there are no instructions to close schools currently, we are constantly reviewing our own in house operations at The Douay Martyrs Catholic Secondary School.

    With this in mind, we are postponing these workshops purely to reduce the number of functions taking place at the school unless they are critical to its operation. Reducing the number of visitors to the school protects not only you as a parent/carer, but also our work force in a time where we are taking all necessary precautions.

    We will rearrange the date of these workshops and send out new invitations in due course.

    Yours sincerely

    Mr M Rogers

    Assistant Headteacher

    Parental Workshop Coordinator

  • 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

    Sarah Naidoo

    SIMS and Data Officer
