Dear Parents and Carers,

The new school year is well underway and everyone has settled back into the welcome routine of school life at St Mary’s. Welcome to all new nursery and reception children and parents, as well as children and families in other year groups who have come to us from different schools andcountries. We very much hope that they will enjoy all that we offer at St Mary’s and that your child/ren will feel happy, safe and secure in our school. We also hope that you are taking advantage of the open-door policy and coming into school as regularly as you are able to at the beginning of the day to support your child and find out about their learning as they settle into their school day. It is also an opportunity for you to talk to your child’s class teacher briefly if, for example, you have any concerns.
