School Street

As you will have noticed, our School Street is up and running! It is the first in Westminster and it is great to have less traffic at the start and end of the school day. The road is still open to cyclists, so make sure you look both ways before crossing.

Councillors Tim Mitchell and Iain Bott came down to see it in action, and we will be having an official opening event very soon!

Air quality awards

Mrs Leith won a Champion award from Sustrans for all the work she has done to promote sustainable travel for the school. We are really proud of her, especially as there were only 10 awards given out across London, and she is the only person in Westminster to win an award!

On 5th December, Heidi, Mohammed and Myra attended the 2018 Top Schools accreditation seminar and awards ceremony at London’s Living Room at City Hall. St Mary’s won a ‘School of the Region’ award in recognition of our achievement in active and safer travel initiatives.

St Mary’s is a Top School!

St Mary’s has been selected for a STARS Top School award!

STARS (Sustainable Travel: Active, Responsible, Safe) is a scheme run by TfL to inspire young Londoners to think differently about travel and its impact on their health, wellbeing and the environment.

St Mary’s has the gold level accreditation but we have also won a Top School award for all the work we have done promoting active travel, improving air quality and road safety for our school community.

Some pupils will be invited to attend a special awards ceremony in December at City Hall.

We would like to say a huge thank you to all the people who have helped us to win this award, but especially to our pupils and their families for all their efforts and support. We are very proud of you!

PGL – Day Three

Today, the children are going to try the Giant Swing (they were SO excited about this yesterday!), the low ropes course, abseiling and Survivor.

They will be leaving PGL after their afternoon activities and should be back at school at around 7pm depending on traffic.
