Well done to the Year 4 teams who competed in the Etonbury Football Tournament and

Tri-Golf events.

‘Parents vs School’ was a brilliant event!

The children were very competitive and so enthusiastic throughout the day!

The children are delighted to be the winners this year, although it was extremely close!

They ran an amazing 686 laps of the field, with the parents close behind on 682!

A huge thank you to the SMSA for organising the event and to all of the fantastic

parents who ran laps!


Our summer concert ‘When I Grow Up!’ is on Wednesday and Thursday. The concerts will last approximately an hour. The playground is available for parking each evening, but please take great care. 
 There will be a retiring collection for the Sick Children’s Trust at
Addenbrookes Hospital.
We hope you’ll enjoy another great performance by our talented pupils!

The Festival Fete is on Saturday 23rd June at 1.00pm until

4.00pm. This is a great event, raising money for charity and

the school. Please come along and join in the fun! 

On Friday 22nd we will be inviting the children to come in in their own clothes in exchange for a sweet or monetary donation for our school sweet tombola stall.  Any/all donations gratefully received!

I am delighted to inform you that St. Mary’s has been judged ‘Outstanding’ in our

recent SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican & Methodist Schools) Inspection.
