Following advice and the press release given by the Education Minister, we have made the decision to close the whole of St Mary’s School from Monday, 23rd March to support efforts to contain the spread of Covid-19.
All pupils affected by the school closures must continue their learning at home with work being set by their teachers, who will be checking in with them regularly to help them with questions about their learning, and to check that you are all OK. This will be either by phone or email. Teachers will also be contactable at set hours during the week. These times will be sent to you directly, along with staff mobile numbers.
Please make use of these links for children to continue working at home:

This is an excellent website. The link to the ‘Activities’ from the home page provides videos for parents that will help them to engage with the age related activities. All activities are aimed at supporting language and communication skills.
Simple, fun activities for children from newborn to five, really useful for supporting parents in developing their home learning environment
Also an a brilliant website from the National Literacy Trust with lots of information for parents. There are more videos to support parents and plenty of activities.
