Spring Term 2022
Welcome back to school! This term may be tricky due to rising Covid cases but hopefully we will all stay well.
Our Ofsted report has been published following our inspection in November - please do have a read as we are very proud of it! Your children are a credit to both their families and St Mary's. We are still awaiting our Church School (SIAMS) Inspection which should be sometime this term.
Hopefully we will be able to have a settled term and really work hard - I know Foundation Stage and Year 1 are working hard on their Phonics learning, Year 2 are looking forward to visiting The Deep in Hull in connection with their geography learning and Year 4 have already launched their history learning with a visit from Astrid, a Viking lady - it all looked very exciting! Y5 will soon start their swimming lessons at the brand new pool in Bawtry and Y6 have DARE to look forward to (Drugs Abuse Resistance Education) which is led by a police officer.
Forest School will continue each week for Reception and KS1 and it is Y4's turn this half term. Please send suitable clothing as it can be very cold!
We are looking forward to working in partnership with you all again this term. Please come and speak to me if you have any concerns (or compliments!).
WELCOME BACK EVERYONE!!
Autumn Term 2021
After a very eventful last 18 months, I am really pleased to be able to welcome everyone back to St Mary's! We have missed having parents in school, whole school worships, Church services, mixed playtimes, buddy time...the list is endless! Fingers crossed we will be able to get back to some sense of normality and open our doors wide again. Thank you to the parents and carers for helping to keep us all safe.
This term we are really looking forward to welcoming our new children into the St Mary's family, whether they be in Nursery, Reception or higher up the school. We all hope that you will be very happy with us.
The term is starting with some interesting visits for some classes - Year 1 and 2 will be going to Austerfield to learn about animal habitats, Year 3 will be visited by Catherine who will tell them all about the Stone Age, Year 4 will be responsible for our Harvest Festival service in St Mary's Church at the end of September, Year 5 will be evacuated to Perlethorpe and Year 6 will be visited by some rainforest creatures! What an excellent way for the children to start their learning journeys!
If everything goes according to plan, our PTA will be active again this year. Please try and support their fundraising efforts and, even better, why not join them?
Come and say hello if you see me on the playground and if you have any queries of concerns I will try and help.
Welcome tour of our school - Summer 2020
Please enjoy looking round our school using the link below. We are sorry we cannot accept visitors at the moment, due to Covid-19, so we hope that this video will give you an idea of what it is like here. We are really looking forward to welcoming our new Nursery and Reception children, as soon as Government guidelines allow this and we hope you enjoy the tour.

It has been lovely to welcome the whole school back this September, we have certainly missed you all! What a relief that we can be all together again. Our new children in Nursery, Reception and other year groups seem to have settled in well and everyone looks refreshed and ready for some learning and hard work.
I have been amazed at how quickly the children have settled back into school life. Many of the KS2 children have not been in school since March yet you would never know! They are certainly a credit to their families.
This term sees Y1 and Y6 enjoy some time with South American animals as they 'Meet a Creature', Y5 have started swimming lessons and will be 'evacuated' to Perlethorpe and Reception and the whole of KS1 have started Forest School. Exciting times at St Mary's!
Thank you to all parents and carers for being so supportive of our new Covid related procedures, it is much appreciated.
Take care and stay safe.
Spring Term 2020
Happy New Year! I hope you all had a good Christmas and best wishes for a peaceful 2020.
The term will begin with Y4 welcoming a Viking visitor into class as a launch for their new history topic quickly followed by Vocal Group taking part in the 'Young Voices' massed choir concert at Sheffield Arena. Y2 are also out and about as they visit The Deep in Hull and YR and Y5 will visit a planetarium to learn all about the Earth in space! A very exciting start to the new term.
Y4 and Y5 are also in action when they take part in some sporting competitions at Sir Thomas Wharton and in March, YR and Y1 will enjoy a musical experience at CAST. Y3 will also go on their residential to Sherwood Forest; the first of the year. I'm sure there will be lots of excitement! Our Spring term will be rounded off with our Easter service in Church which Y5 will lead. All parents, carers and friends are warmly welcomed to join us.
Autumn Term 2019
Welcome to our new website! We have been planning this venture for a while now so it is lovely seeing it come to fruition - we hope you like it!
We have had an excellent term so far: our youngest children have settled into school life really well and it is lovely to see them enjoying their learning. Forest School has taken off in a big way with YR, all of KS1 and Y3 enjoying a weekly session.
Thank you to Y4 Laughton who kick started our new school year with their excellent Harvest Festival, Y6 Foljambe for their poignant Remembrance Day service and Y5 Scarbrough for their Anti Bullying assembly. You all make me very proud!
It is the turn of Y3 Hansby next to lead our Christingle service in Church followed by KS1 and FS nativity productions. Christmas is coming!
