St Mary’s has been awarded the BIT award in recognition of its work in preventing bullying in school. This is a wonderful achievement and something we are extremely proud of, as we take anti-bullying extremely seriously. Year 5 worked intensively with Kidscape last term, and both Mrs Leith and Mr Davies have been trained to deliver high-quality anti-bullying teaching to the children. A huge thank you to Mrs Leith, Mrs McSherry and all the staff for all their work in protecting our children.
We have been working hard on our vision for St Mary’s school, and on a modern, up to date logo. Please see our document about how we did this: St Marys Identity and Vision 2015
Our vision for St Mary’s is:
This means that our aim is:
“To provide an excellent learning environment, which promotes achievement in every area, and nurtures the social, emotional and spiritual well-being of the whole school community.”
Our new logo is a version of the logo the children currently have on their school uniform, showing St Mary’s Church:
You will start to see this logo being used all around the school, and from 1st January, you will be able to buy uniform with this logo on (both in school, and online). The school council have helped us develop the school uniform, and as a result we will be introducing some new items.
We hope you like our vision and logo, and will support us to make St Mary’s the best it can be!
We now have the report of our SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools), which shows that St Mary’s has been judged to be a ‘Good’ Church School. We are delighted with this outcome, which shows how well we are providing for our pupils.
