Weekly Newsletter 13.1.17

Here is today’s newsletter: January 13th 2017

Please can we remind parents of the procedures for reporting a concern: SMBS Concerns Procedure 2016-17

It is crucial for the harmonious running of our school that all parents and carers follow these at all times. They are built on our school values, and British Values, of respect and love for one another.

Thank you

Ofsted Report: St Mary’s is a GOOD school

Here is the report from our Ofsted inspection, which confirms that we are a ‘Good’ school with ‘Outstanding’ Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare.

We are delighted to achieve this, having been graded Requires Improvement 2 years ago. The report shows how many wonderful things there are about St Mary’s, in particular our incredible pupils and very committed staff, and how much we have developed and improved over the last 2 years. We hope that every member of our school community will celebrate this with us – it is very much a joint effort!

Healthy Schools Award

St Mary’s has just been awarded the Healthy Schools Bronze Award for its commitment to children’s health and well-being. This includes all aspects of health: physical, emotional and mental health. The award is a way of recognising good practice in schools in promoting healthy lifestyles and keeping children safe from harm.

A huge congratulations to the staff who contributed to the awards process, especially Mrs McSherry and Mrs Leith who collated all the evidence. Thank you, too, to our parents; your support with healthy lunchboxes and engagement with sports clubs and activities has helped make this possible.

 

New Lunch Menus

At the end of last term, we sent out a letter explaining that a new catering company is now providing our school meals, along with many other schools in Westminster. The company is called Caterlink. Here is the menu that will be served this term at St Mary’s:

Please note that cake desserts will only be served on Fridays, in line with our whole school healthy eating policy.

We look forward to hearing the children’s comments about the new food.
