News - 11th March 2021

Dear Parents/Carers 
 
It was lovely to welcome all the children back into school on Monday morning; hearing the sound of their chatter and laughter around the building is wonderful, and the school feels ‘alive’ again!  
 
The children have been busy settling back into school routines, there have been a few wobbles, which is expected, but the staff are here to help, support and encourage the children.  The HSLW is also available if you have any concerns about your child and how they are settling back into school life. Children will have opportunities to talk about their worries in PSHE lessons and if necessary, extra 1:1 or small group sessions will be organised.  However, overall the children are delighted to be back with their friends and I am sure this happiness and positivity is infectious. 
 
In assembly this week, we have discussed our school behaviour rules, ‘be safe, be ready and be respectful’ and how in school we need to do things ‘The St Mary’s way’, as learning in school is busier than at home, therefore patience and kindness is required, along with the characteristics of independence and resilience.  
 
There are many exciting events and days organised in the next few weeks for the children to look forward to, starting with a mufti day next Friday in aid of Comic Relief; and an opportunity to splat a few members of staff with a custard pie if their joke telling does not measure up! I’ve heard some of them; it’s going to be messy! 
 
Finally, a gentle reminder about social distancing at the school gates.  Some parents are anxious and concerned, so please be mindful of this.  Once you have dropped off or picked up, leave as soon as possible.  Thank you. 
 
Have a lovely weekend. 
 
Mrs Buckley
