It is with great regret that the Governing Body and Mrs Price have made the decision to close the school tomorrow, ending term a day early. Due to COVID complications we do not believe we could deliver safe levels of staffing for the children, leaving us regrettably no option but to close tomorrow. All parents have been emailed further details this evening (Thursday 20th).
Watch the video below to find out how to get set up and the documents you’ll need to make your claim.
Nursery only: Once you have a 30 hour code you need to reconfirm your eligibility through your account every three months by logging into your secure account. In order to use your code this September you will need a validity start date on or before 31st August. (Find out more: https://www.warwickshire.gov.uk/children-families/help-childcare-costs/2)
Before & After School Club: Parents can use one of several Government schemes to pay for our wraparound care. Help with childcare costs for parents is available for working families (including the self-employed), who earn under £100k and at least £142 per week through the tax-free childcare scheme. Help is also available for those on Tax Credits or Universal Credit. Please visit the Childcare Choices website to find out more:
Fraternity and Social Friendship
Thank you to CAFOD for this great animation explaining Pope Francis’ letter, asking us all to reach out to our sisters and brothers in need, whoever they are, wherever they may come from. We are all challenged to think of ourselves as a single global family living in a common home, and neighbours to all – you can make your own pledge here
We are looking for a term-time Before and After School Club Assistant to join the staff here at St Mary’s from September (38 weeks plus holiday, 16.25hrs / split shift)
If you would you like to share in the privilege and responsibility of shaping the lives of the children in our care, a warm welcome awaits you.

If you aren’t able to attend church at the moment, there are still some great online resources to join in with:
- You can follow the CAFOD’s online children’s liturgy any time (as well as live weekly at 10am on Sundays) and visit the Family and Kidz Zone for prayers and resources.
- 52Sundays.com is a dynamic guide to help you and your family reclaim the Lord’s Day with prayer, activities, food, and more! It offers simple and insightful ways for your family to spend time together each Sunday learning more about the Catholic faith and having fun while you’re at it.
- For a list of parishes with live-streamed services – including Fr Sebastian’s new parish of St John Vianney – please visit: https://www.birminghamdiocese.org.uk/parishes-with-live-streams
