Head’s Update

Dear Parents and Carers,

This week has been ‘National School Sports Week’ which has seen St Mary’s return to a ‘normal’ sports day for the children and fun events for the parents.  On Friday, we took part in the ‘Big Breaktime’ where children rotated challenges and games on the playground.  We definitely captured the enjoyment, competition and camaraderie that has been missing as a result of the school closures and social distancing.

A BIG thank you must go to the staff especially Mr Walker, Mr Creber and Mrs Bromwich for organising the events.  The children were fabulous showing great sportsmanship and collaboration in their houses and it was great to see so many parents taking part in the obstacle and sprint events too.

It is with great pleasure to announce ‘Thunberg’ as the winning house of sports day.  As you can see from the picture below, the house captains are very proud to represent their house and for the trophy to have green ribbons on.

On Friday, your child will have come home with a leaflet explaining more about the transition day that will be taking place very soon.  Together in partnership, we can ensure a happy, positive and enjoyable transition for your child.

At St Mary’s, we value a home school partnership that continues to develop the full potential of every child. As part of this partnership, we would like to hear your views of the school. We will then endeavour to use the information collected to make further improvements and developments to the school.  Please use the link sent via email to fill out the questionnaire.

Have a lovely weekend.

Mrs North
