We are very lucky to have had @CompassBeMHST in Year Five and Year Two this morning. We’ve looked at mental health and how we can look after this, who we can talk to and how to build our resilience.Thank you Miss Bell for organising this.

Mental health week, in aid of Place2Be

The whole school have loved taking part in our circuit training this morning, for mental health week, in aid of Place2Be.  Thank you for your kind donations. What a great charity our School Council have decided to support.

‘Eat Them To Defeat Them’

We are taking part in ‘Eat Them To Defeat Them’ and today was all about carrots. The pupils enjoyed trying new foods- even our children on packed lunches tried some new carrot based foods too. We are loving the positive attitude- well done everyone.

Children’s Mental Health Week

We have sent positivity post cards to all children and staff to let everyone know how special they are to the St Mary’s community. We launched the day with a very special collective worship about why our opinion matters. We hope all children love the packs they have brought home and will take part in the challenges.

‘Meet the Physiotherapist’

A huge thank you to @SYHSCareers for giving us the opportunity to ‘Meet the Physiotherapist’. We loved learning more about the job and had lots of our questions answered.

Children’s Mental Health Week.

In staff meeting today, we started preparing for Children’s Mental Health Week. All children in school will receive a personalised postcard from a member of staff in school with a pack of information on supporting children’s mental health. More information about this exciting week will be shared in the newsletter this Friday.


Ms Steele and Miss Bell enjoyed looking at the class PSHE folders today and seeing the amazing work happening across school. We loved speaking with the pupils about what they enjoy in PSHE.

All about relationships

In our new unit in PSHE, Year One are learning all about relationships. Today, they drew self portraits and discussed what makes us unique. We looked at our similarities and differences and then looked at our families and how all families are unique.

Crucial Crew

Today, our Year Six pupils went to Crucial Crew at the Lifewise Centre to learn all about keeping safe in the community. They  watched and took part in scenarios involving knife crime, arson, child exploitation, basic first aid and understanding the age of criminal responsibly.
