Sports Day was a great success! The children were brilliant and put in so much effort!

Well done to the winning teams – Ruby Class Red Team, Garnet Class Green Team, KS1 Apples and KS2 Limes – and also to the winners of the parent’s races too!

This week our Year 4 children are taking part in ‘Bikeability’ training. 

Whole School ‘Fun Day’ is on Wednesday. Classes will be taking part in a range of activities, including a session on the bouncy castle, kindly provided by Koncept

          Castles. Children can come in non-uniform. (Reception and Years 2, 3 & 4)                   
Our Year 1 children will also be ‘Going on a Bear Hunt’ at Gordon Craig Theatre on Wednesday morning followed by a teddy bear picnic in the park!  Please could children come into school in their uniform and bring a teddy.  They will then join in fun day activities in uniform on return to school at 1.30/2.00pm for the remainder of the afternoon.                            
As we come to the end of term, our Year 4 children have a fun week ahead!
Leaver’s barbeque is on Thursday after school until 5.00pm and our special Leaver’s Assembly is on Friday at 2.15pm (parents welcome - tissues at the ready!).

Welcome to St Mary's 

If your child is to join us for the first time we welcome you as parents and look forward to a happy and successful association over the coming years.  If you already have a child here we are pleased to continue the links between us.

The staff, governors and I are committed to working together to provide the highest quality education for your children.  We aim to ensure all of the children enjoy school and strive for excellence within our broad and balanced curriculum.  Our Academy is welcoming and friendly and we are very proud of our Christian family ethos.  We look forward to working with you, as together we can give your child the very best possible start to their school life.
 
The information on this website will, I hope, give a flavour of our work, but I am always available to speak to parents about the aspects of our work and/or to give a personal tour of the academy.  If you would like to do this please feel free to give me a ring.
