Helplines and resources to support parents and children

Dear Children and Parents,

As a school we sympathise with you during this uncertain and challenging time. The unknown and constant changes can cause anxiety to rise and mental health to decline. We have received some resources to support you all during this period. Below are links to some visual resources to help young children, or children with SEND, to prepare for the return to school, and to reflect on their lockdown experience.

There is a flier below with contact details for any children to call regarding their mental health. It is a 24 hour 7 days a week telephone advice helpline run by qualified mental health clinicians to be there for you to contact when you need. 

There is a Council helpline for any parents and carers who have any concerns or queries. You can contact the Parental helpline on 01926 412021, from 9am to 5pm, or check the Council’s website for further information. 

The parent and carer webpage can be found by clicking here 

Take care of yourselves,

St. Mary’s Team


Photo diary – week six

For week six we are going to try something a bit different! Please join in by sending a clip of your child (or yourself if you are a member of staff or governor) dancing or singing to the Macarena, ideally a clip of them/you doing it four times so it goes the full circle! Don’t send films of the whole song! If sending clips of more than one person by email please send each clip in a different email. If sending by email, could also send another email with no attachments saying how many emails/clips you’ve sent we can check they have all been received.

Please contact your class rep for other options for sending through your files. We have a drop box account set up which is very simple to use. Cut off time is end of day on Friday 1st May.

Have fun … we’ll post the collective work product as soon as we can!

Welcome to Google Classrooms

From Monday, children will be accessing Google Classroom to complete their online learning. Please read the documents below for guidance and instructions on how to access the virtual platform. Children are already familiar with how to log on and view weekly learning timetables and assigned work. We are excited to see what the children produce.
