Each separate subject here at St Mary's has a Lead teacher. In R.E the Lead teacher is called Mrs Hayes. Her deep rooted faith and many years of teaching experience support her to lead this hugely important subject area effectively. She is supported by all colleagues, in our desire to share the Gospel Values to teach children about life and how to be the best they can be. She works tirelessly to keep all stakeholders involved and able to encompass the essence of what makes our Catholic School such a happy fulfilled place to be. Mrs Hayes currently teaches in Y3 and is one of our Assistant head teachers.
Each subject also has a Link Governor, who supports and monitors progress, in conjunction with guidance from the SLT. In the case of R.E this is Fr Craig. Fr Craig is also our parish priest and the school’s spiritual director. He brings great drive and humour to all that he does, whilst maintaining an air of wonder and awe in all liturgical interactions with children and parents. His versatility and adaptability are also a strength of the R.E team here at St Mary’s.
Each class has its own class page, where homework, projects, home communications etc are publicised and shared on a very regular basis. Class pages share our Faith Ambassadors/Peer mentors, which are greatly sought after Y6 monitorial roles; these then cascade down to Mini Vinnies in differing classes, also. Class pages also share much about the prayer progression and the Catholic life of the children. Finally, they share the class saints in all instances; again a much cherished saint in each setting, who is part and parcel of the life of “the class”.
Please bear with us as we are developing this new way of sharing with you, over time. Thank you.
