World Book Day!
To celebrate world book day all staff and pupils dressed as their favourite book character. The children and staff all enjoyed showing off their costumes in the parade on our stage! In our classes we also had a fun filled day of book activities!
Veolia - SPLAAT competition
It was a very exciting day for all at St. Mary's on Thursday 28th February as the results for the poster competition were announced. The children's work was of such a high standard there were 6 prizes given in total and one poster nominated to adorn the entrance of the new plant at Four Ashes.
Veolia also surpised us with a cheque for £1000 to be used for environmental projects at school. The school council are now in meetings to decide where and on what they would like to spend the money.
OFSTED Report May 2011
The OFSTED inspection in May 2011 rated St Mary's as GOOD across the board. We would like to thank the governors, staff, pupils, PTFA and everyone who has contributed to this achievement.
"This is a good school, where pupils achieve well and attainment is above average in English and mathematics. All groups of pupils, from the least to the most able, including those from minority ethnic backgrounds, make equally good progress. The upward trend seen in recent years is being sustained, and represents good improvement since the previous inspection. Pupils and their parents and carers comment positively on the improvements that have taken place since that time. They attribute them to the commitment and dedication of the staff and the strong teamwork evident throughout the school. Good leadership and management, supported by the headteacher's clarity of vision, have successfully brought staff, governors, pupils, and their parents and carers together to support the school in its drive to raise standards further. The school's self evaluation is accurate, if somewhat cautious in places, and the outcomes are used well to improve teaching and learning. All of this gives the school good capacity for sustained improvement." OFSTED May 2011
