Parents’ meeting

On Friday, we held a meeting at school for parents to talk about our Ofsted report.

Miss Norman gave a presentation: Parents’ Meeting

Parents then had the opportunity to ask any questions they had.

We hope that parents found this useful, and that anyone who wasn’t able to be there will find the slides of the presentation useful.

Football Tournament – We are the Champions!

On Friday, our football team played against other Westminster schools in a tournament at Paddington Rec. St Mary’s was the winning team of Friday’s heat, and will play again today in the final. Well done, boys. We’re very proud of you!

FootballUPDATE – Monday 10th March

We won the final and are the Westminster champions. We will now represent Westminster in an all-London competition at Crystal Palace. Fantastic!

Book Day

Today is World Book Day and we have all dressed up as book characters to celebrate!

We have had wonderful book related activities going on all week, including trips to Waterstones and Daunt Books, “Drop Everything and Read”, Mystery Reader and an author visit. Today, we were visited by a representative from Marylebone library to make sure every child has a library card and the opportunity to use the library.
