Dear Parent/Carers

In the event of a bubble closure, or a child been told they must isolate, we have introduced an online learning platform, Google Classroom, that can be used to access learning set from school.

Google Classroom can be used on a wide range of devices and the app is available from the App Store and Google Play or can be accessed on the internet on classroom.google.com

If your child is in Year 6 or Year 5, they have already been given their login - this is their first name and surname with no capitals with @smat.org.uk after. For example joebloggs@smat.org.uk Passwords have been chosen and changed by the children. All children in Year 6 and Year 5 have accessed the learning platform in school.

If your child is in Year 4 or Year 3, they have already been given their login - this is their first name and surname with no capitals with @smat.org.uk after. For example joebloggs@smat.org.uk
Your child has been given their password and these will be text out to you before the end of the week.

If your child is in Year 2, Year 1 or Reception, we have attached your child’s login information and password (this will be changed when you log in) for you to use at home.

To ensure that all children and families are confident with logging on and using the platform, we will begin sending homework home using Google Classroom. This will include weekly spellings and half termly extended homework. This will start from Friday 16th October.

Work set by the class teacher will appear on the stream once you log in. The work can then be submitted back onto the learning platform and will be marked and feedback given from the class teacher in line with the Remote Learning Policy that can be found on the school website.

If you will struggle to access the internet or you don’t think you have the necessary skills or technology, please do let us know and alternative arrangements can be made.

We hope to send out some further information and support in the near future. Thank you,

Mr J Moore
Deputy Head Teacher

“Outstanding teaching enables pupils to make outstanding progress in reading, writing and mathematics. Pupils use these skills exceptionally well in other subjects” and “Pupils are exceptionally keen to learn. Their behaviour in lessons is excellent. Pupils say that they feel very safe in school” and “Teaching is outstanding because staff make very close checks on pupils’ learning and match the work very precisely to the needs of every pupil.”

St Mary’s Primary School is an Outstanding, exciting Church of England School which has children at the heart of our focus. Through exceptional relationships with children, a bespoke, knowledge rich, curriculum and a range of extra curricular activities we offer a dynamic education to all.

Our bespoke curriculum allows for progression in knowledge and skills across all the curriculum. Through our curriculum drivers, Reading and Oracy, we provide children with every opportunity to succeed in education and life.

Reading is at the heart of our curriculum. Opportunities for all children to read well and widely permeates our curriculum. Carefully curated book lists for each year group, clear teaching of reading skills and the chance for all to be read to underpin our whole curriculum. We firmly believe reading broadens children’s horizons, develops their imagination and provides them with a rich vocabulary. We love reading at St Mary’s!

Our dedicated team of staff provide a friendly, nurturing learning environment where pupils feel safe, valued and secure. Our open door policy ensures that parents feel welcome and involved in their child’s learning and successes.

We ensure all children are supported to reach their full potential and are challenged in all aspects of the curriculum. We also provide a range of extra curricular activities to enrich the curriculum, from music, to gardening, to numerous sporting events. Throughout their educational journey at St. Mary’s, we hope our children create memories that will stay with them forever.

All children have the opportunity to represent school in a range of different events throughout their time at St Mary’s.

As a Church of England school, our distinctive set of Christian values are embedded throughout all areas of our school:

Love

Respect 

Forgiveness 

Responsibility 

They can be seen explicitly through the life of the school.

St Mary’s Primary School is proud to be part of St Mary’s Academy Trust. See their vision statement below.
