Congratulations to this week's star award children
as listed on the newsletter!


Our new Reception class children are attending for half day sessions
this week either in the morning from 8.45am to 11.00am
or the afternoon from 1.00pm to 3.10pm.
This means we have everyone on site at the start and end of the day.

I apologise for repeating this message, but please arrive no more than 5 minutes before your drop off / pick up slot.
This is the only way to make these key points of the day
as safe and smooth as possible.

Please park considerately around the school site - we have already had the first parking complaint from our neighbours.


Reception are developing their ‘loose parts’ play and would be very grateful for the following items.  Please make sure they are clean and dry and bring them to school in a clear sealed food bag to GARNET CLASS

       -milk bottle lids                  -pebbles               -curtain rings          -buttons
       -conkers                             -pine cones          -marbles                 -keys
       -cotton reels                      -washers               -corks

 Also if you have any of the following large items (please contact Mrs Pattullo  to arrange a convenient time to bring them in).

 Old plastic chairs, Pallets, Plastic milk crates,

 As we come back to school it is very likely that many children will catch colds. Children who have colds or sore throats can attend school. Children must not attend school if they display any symptoms related to COVID-19 (a high
temperature, a new and continuous cough, loss of taste/smell) and should get tested.


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.

If you are already at St. Mary's, have a browse - you may discover something new!
