Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.
Welcome to St Mary’s RC Primary School Website.
Thank you to the Reception/Y1 parents who attended the ‘Fun with Maths’ course on Monday morning. This looked to be useful and interesting and hopefully will enable those attending to better support their children with their learning at home. We have ‘Fun with Phonics’ on Monday 30th September with places available.
This week we have our first Family & School Association (FSA) meeting ready for the coming school year. The FSA organises fundraising events which are essential in terms of supporting the school financially as well as providing social events for both parents and children. Last academic year the total raised was £2294. This was used for many enrichment activities including coach subsidies for trips to the pantomime, World Museum, Spaceport, Outdoor Elements; a fantastic Birds of Prey day; a new speaker for the hall for discos; Christmas party gifts, end of year treats, class prize boxes and newspaper subscriptions. We would really like more people to become involved as we lost a lot of active members in July when their children moved to high school. We hold several planning meetings during the year, usually focusing on the next event, and the first meeting is on Tuesday 1st October at 9am. I understand that not everyone can attend due to work and other commitments but it would be helpful to know if you would like to help even if you cannot come to the meetings. The office have an FSA email list so please let Amanda know if you would like to be on this which will ensure you are given the opportunity to volunteer through receiving direct information about the help needed for forthcoming events.
