Happy New Year – I hope that you all had a restful Christmas and New Year break and that you and your children are looking forward to an exciting and productive 2019. All the children have returned to school full of enthusiasm and ready for all that the spring term has to offer.

New Staff – I would like to welcome the following new staff members to our team. We have bought into the services of School Home Support (SHS), and Bea Fenton, our SHS practitioner, will be working alongside our Inclusion Manager and office team to support many of our parents and children as required. Please see further information on Bea’s role overleaf. We also welcome Christopher Burke (Teaching Assistant Y4), Ryan Kennedy (Teaching Assistant Y6) and Ayca Tunca (School Meal’s Supervisory Assistant at Church Lane). We wish all of our new staff members every success at St Mary’s.
