Dear Parents and Carers,
This week has been very different in school due to the heat wave. I would like to thank all the staff and children for being absolutely fantastic with the changes to the daily routines which allowed us to stay open.
We are so proud of our Year 6 cohort who have been very busy with their enterprise project during the last couple of weeks; they have raised a substantial amount of money for Alopecia UK. This is one example of why Year 6 have been a credit to our school community during their time at St Mary’s. Year 6, please continue to demonstrate the St Mary’s values and work hard. Your secondary schools are extremely lucky to be gaining a fantastic group of children. Remember – ‘Aim for the moon, and if you miss you will be amongst the stars!’ Congratulations Year 6!
This academic year we have given out trophies to celebrate the success of Year 6. Reverend Cresswell presented the trophies in church on the last day.
Congratulations to the winners:
Isabelle Blake – consistently demonstrating school values in class, and the wider school community
Cery Sterio-Mason – having a positive attitude to all sports, giving her best effort, being a team player and respect for all.
Academic Achievement Trophy
Lucy Giles and Peter Gillson – for an outstanding performance in end of year tests measured using the SATS scores.
Finally, Mrs Edwards leaves us to start her maternity leave. Her resilience to make it to the end of the summer term has been amazing! We wish her all the best for the birth of her twin girls and look forward to seeing her very soon with her babies in the autumn term.
I would like to thank the parents, the PTA, and the wider community for supporting the school this year. I look forward to seeing everyone on Tuesday 6th September 22.
Have a safe and enjoyable summer break with your families.
