We are very excited to welcome you all back for the new academic year. We are both looking forward to beginning our new roles and to working with the pupils, parents, staff and governors to continue making St Mary’s school such a special place.
Ms Ascough will be in school on alternate Monday mornings or afternoons and all day on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Miss Granite will be in school every day, as will Miss Bell and Mr Knight. There will be a member of the senior leadership team on the playground each day, so please feel free to come and say hello or to share any questions or concerns you may have. If there is something of a more confidential nature that you wish to discuss, please don’t hesitate to make an appointment to see us.
Although there are some new faces at St Mary’s, our vision and values remain the same.
Our school vision is ‘Excellence with Compassion’, and it is this ethos, along with our six Christian values, which underpins everything we do in school. We want the best for every single child in our school. That means achieving the highest possible academic standards, but also means that we value the whole child – mind, body and spirit – and seek to create a culture of love, respect, wellbeing and safety for everyone in our community.
The year ahead promises to be full of adventures, new challenges and lots of learning and we’re really excited to get started!
