Welcome to Newman RC College

As Headteacher of Blessed John Henry Newman RC College, I warmly welcome you to our website: the portal to learning and a little more information about our wonderful family and wider community. Our website acts as a window in to the work we carry out, however it can in no way fully capture the true extent of our mission. I am fiercely proud of the college, our Catholic ethos and the values that underpin all aspects of our vocation.

Due to the current guidelines brought in by the government in light of the Covid-19 outbreak, the College is currently closed, except to vulnerable children, and the children of ‘key workers.’

The Oldham Local Authority website is regularly updated with information on Covid-19, and can be found at: www.oldham.gov.uk/coronavirus

 

Working at home during the closure:

During the closure, we are using the Microsoft Teams app and college email system to keep pupils updated and to post work (electronically) to them. All the details they need to work at home, including accessing emails and Microsoft Teams can be found on this page on the college website:  https://www.newmanrc.oldham.sch.uk/working-at-home/ . In addition, the home learning curriculum can be found here: https://www.newmanrc.oldham.sch.uk/hlc/

I have also posted a video and some resources on the website about activities that pupils can do over the Easter break to enrich their learning and keep them occupied: https://www.newmanrc.oldham.sch.uk/easter-activities/

For parents, the team have put together useful resources to help you support your child through this difficult time. This page contains links to documents created by Oldham LA: https://www.newmanrc.oldham.sch.uk/c19support/ and there is also a page full of tips that will help you ensure your child is safe when working online: https://www.newmanrc.oldham.sch.uk/parents-students/safety-online/

 

Free School Meals

We continue to provide vouchers to families whose children are entitled to free school meals. Vouchers to cover the Easter period will be posted out during w/c 6 April.

About our college

At Newman College we cultivate and celebrate our distinct Catholic nature through the promotion of ‘Dignity and Excellence’ for all members of our College family. John Henry Newman wrote ‘God has created me to do Him some definite service; He has committed some work to me which He has not committed to another. I have my mission.’ Newman College is committed to placing faith at its centre, radiating the Gospel values of love, service, courage and reconciliation from the physical and spiritual heart of our learning community. ‘I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons’. At Newman College we celebrate collectively in our triumphs and we are united in our trials.
