St MAry's Virtual School

THE HOME LEARNING HUB

STATUS: PARTIAL USE

The school building is open to most children
but some children or groups are working from home and are accessing the Home Learning Hub.

A Challenge Partners Quality Assurance Review was undertaken by experienced, external reviewer over two days in April, 2021. You can read read the full review here.

The following quotations provide a summary overview of the 2021 Quality Assurance Review: 


“St Mary’s places great emphasis on having ‘faith in everyone to shine brightly’. Christian values, carefully intertwined with British values, underpin the school’s ethos into which all pupils and their families are welcomed.”

“The highly effective inclusive practice values the uniqueness of every child and aims to develop the self-esteem and skills they need to be successful in life.”
 

“All staff are provided with a wealth of professional development which enables them to carry out their roles with knowledge and skill. Class teachers… demonstrated clearly their immense enthusiasm, drive and commitment to achieving the very best for the pupils in their classes, as well as for the subjects they lead.”
 

“A carefully crafted and detailed curriculum for foundation subjects and science has been created collaboratively. This appropriately begins with a creative Foundation Stage curriculum led by skilled and experienced Early Years staff. It has the school’s values, with a Christian perspective and British values at its heart. Worship themes and topics from the personal, social and health education (PSHE) scheme are carefully interwoven, alongside ‘big questions’ which engage pupils in deep thinking.”

Come on in and see how we shine!

 

Keeping everyone at St Mary’s safe
 

Please ensure you and your family are familiar with the following rules:.

  1. There will be the same one-way system as before. With your help, this worked extremely well in the autumn and spring terms and was a key part in keeping the school safe and functioning. Please remember:
  • No use of the path to return to College Road after drop-off or pick up; 
  • There must be no coming back under the bridge onto the main playground at pick up time once you have gone round to the back of the building.
  1. We will continue to have a soft start to the day: children can arrive between 8.40am and 9.00am. (The gates will be closed at 9.00am and any children arriving after this time will be marked as late.
     
  2. No vehicular access onto the school site, unless by prior arrangement.

  3. There should be absolutely no parking in Bradon Forest at all.

  4. The end of the day collection times are as follows:
  • EYFS, Year 1, Year 2 &Year 3 from 3.00pm
  • Year 4 from 3.00pm
  • Year 5 from 3.10pm 
  • Year 6 from 3.15pm
    (Year 6 children are still able to leave the site and meet you in a pre-arrange place)

  1. It is essential that you do not wait around on the playground. You should aim to arrive at the time your child is released from class. Arriving earlier just causes issues with too many adults on site. Currently, it is safer to arrive slightly late than too early. We will never let your child go until you are there.
  2. Do not talk to staff at drop-off and collection: please do not approach staff at the start and end of the school day to pass on information or ask questions. Whilst this is often important communication, such ‘quick words’ soon result in staff members having dozens of face-to-face interactions each week, which is not COVID-safe for them, or you. So, please follow our safety rules: if you need to get a message to a teacher, please contact the admin team via email (admin@st-marys-purton.wilts.sch.uk) or phone (01793 770239), who will ensure your message or request is passed on. Members of staff can then contact you on the phone or email as appropriate, as soon as they are able.

  3. Avoid mixing with others on the school run wherever possible – this is so important. We work so hard to ensure different year groups do not mix whilst they are in school and all this is of no use if you allow your children to mix outside school. This risks virus spread and the shutdown of parts or all of the school – and no one wants that!
  4. If you have children in Year 5 or 6, DO NOT arrive until after 3.10pm to collect them (plus any younger children you have).
  1. All adults entering the site must wear a face covering (except if exempt).
     
  2. Children should wear school uniform with black trainers every day (the black trainers enable them to exercise outside each day) but on days they have PE they should come to school in their PE kit (suitable for the weather).

  3. Children will be taught and will socialise in year group bubbles just as they have been since September.
     
  4. Hot school dinners will be available and bookable through Parent Pay as always. The menus will be shared as usual. Please note, book meals must be booked for all children, please, even those who have income-related free school meals or universal infant school meals.

Mrs Naomi Clarke

}I am very proud to be able to welcome you to our wonderful school, where we have 'faith in everyone to shine brightly’. Our website should provide you with all the information you need, but we always welcome visits to the school if you need further information. 

As you enter our school, you will find us learning together in faith, love and friendship; we pride ourselves on our strong family atmosphere. At St Mary’s, a highly motivated and dedicated team ensure that all children aspire to achieve their full potential, both academically and socially.

Every child is valued for their uniqueness and our strong pastoral support enables them to develop the self-esteem and skills they will need to be successful in life; playing, learning and working together now and in the future. The support, challenge and determination to achieve exceptional outcomes for all within our school community is fostered by everyone.

Adults, children and families are all supported to achieve and thrive. We aim to nurture children who are inclusive, tolerant and, most importantly, enthusiastic about life itself; they are set superb examples of this by the caring members of our school community.

The children are enabled to successfully grow into citizens of the future through our diverse and creative curriculum, where learning is rooted in experience. We believe that ‘Learning Together’ with respect and tolerance provides the perfect start to a life-long journey of discovery and fulfilment.~

Our 'Early Years Foundation Stage' have been awarded The Bristol Standard again for 2019-2020. The validation group commended "the opportunities and learning experiences that children access within your school," and added that St Mary's staff, "demonstrate a strong insight in the children and families you have."

Our recent Challenge Partners Review (4th March 2019) also praised our Foundation Stage provision, saying there is, "...very effective teaching in the Reception classes. Staff have created lively and stimulating environments, inside and outside, related to all of the early years areas of learning. Adults have high expectations of children and interact with them well, encouraging them to speak clearly. Children collaborate well with each other, behave sensibly and are learning to be independent and to persevere with tasks."
