Welcome back to everyone at St Mary's! 

Welcome also to our new families who join us this year.  We are so glad you have chosen St Mary's to be the school for your children and we look forward to getting to know you and your children.

We believe that this will be another great year for St Mary's and we look forward to working with you.  If there is anything you would like to discuss then please contact the school office to make an appointment with either the class teacher, Head of School or our Executive Head Teacher.

NEW ART CLUB

Starting from Tuesday 25th September, Mrs Clayton, a qualified teacher, together with Mrs Roberts will be running an Art Club for KS1 children every Tuesday 3.30-4.30pm until half term.  There are a maximum of 10 places, which will be offered on a first come first served basis, Children unsuccessful this term, will be given first refusal for the new club after half term. 

Please contact the school office to reserve your place.

Sandwiches

Could we ask that if children have any fish products in their sandwiches/packed lunch that we are made aware of this.  We have a child in school with a severe allergy to fish so need to mindful if a child has these products in their packed lunch.  Thank you with your cooperation.

Communication between school and home

We will continue to use Parentmail, with ALL letters being sent out this way.  Therefore it is important that we have your most up to date mobile numbers and email addresses to ensure you do not miss important information.

Paper copies are available from the office should you require them.

Thank you for your support with this.

 

REMINDERS..... dont forget....
