We join our nation in feeling the plight of the Ukrainian people and indeed the sufferings of Russian civilians, as a result of the war in Ukraine, currently. Our fundraising across Lent supported CAFOD (Catholic Association for Overseas Development), who are one of the named supporting agencies for the DEC (Disaster Emergency Committee). We raised a staggering £1,000+ and are proud of our community's awareness of their responsibility to help those in need. Thank you very much, everyone.  
St Mary's is all about children and children need a hook- something to link them with good times and support them through the bad times, too. Our hook is hugely successful- it is out Catholic ethos, centred on the teachings of Christ and how that applies in our busy world today- it is inclusive of all, and embedded into all that we do, including our Mission Statement:
 
   "Recognising and celebrating the presence of Christ in one another" 
 
We cannot think of a better way to start a child's life journey than walking with Christ. It helps us to see the good in each other and in ourselves. Long may we continue to do so. We hope that you will join us in this journey, too.
Celebrating our success!  Our attendance at 16th May 2022 stands at 95.8% overall.  See below each year group's attendance:

Well done, once more to all year groups, particularly those at 96% and above. Keep up this great attendance everyone; we need to make up for lost time during Lockdown, with your support.
Parents, please remember that holidays or appointments during school hours are not authorised, unless there are unmitigating circumstances. Whilst we will, of course,honour holidays that are residual from Lockdown, as beyond your or our control, the new term in September will expect a return to holidays being during term time, once more.
