Dear Parents, Caregivers and Friends of St Mary’s School,
What a great spell of weather we are enjoying—the weather at times over the weekend was almost tropical.
It was great to see a number of parents at our information evening last Wednesday night. A school is
always a very busy place with a huge number of things happening, often at the same time.
The key purpose of the information evening and the information letters that the teachers put out at the beginning of the term is to inform the parents about: the expectations that they have for your children, the goals that they want to achieve, how they are going to achieve the goals and what events and activities you can expect for your child to take part in over the term.
Communication is a key part of any organisation and that is why at St Mary’s we put a lot of effort into communicating with our parents in a range of ways, the information evening was the first. There are also two interviews and two written reports about your child’s progress. We have a weekly school newsletter an informative website, a Facebook page, a termly BOT newsletter and also teachers send out a termly newsletter. We also highlight key events by sending out special newsletters and emails. All our staff are available for other informal meetings and during the course of a year we run several parent information evenings as well as a rigorous consultation programme.
So please use these wide ranging communication avenues to ensure you are well informed about our school.
Have a great week
