We want to wish a very warm (if virtual) welcome to St Mary's Catholic Academy to all of our new families. This page is just for you and we hope you will find it really useful!
If you would like to find out more details about the starting school procedures, staff, environment, curriculum and much, much more please look at the power point presentation which is below. Also here is a link to the new EYFS curriculum: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/early-years-foundation-stage-framework--2
Class pages for the current Nursery and Reception classes (follow the pupils menu) will give you a taste of what is on offer through our exciting and enriching curriculum. We have a school facebook page and an EYFS facebook page, which is regularly updated with photos and information.
We also use 'Evidence Me' to share photos observations of your child, that have taken place throughout the school day. You will be given a login in September so you can see your child's progress and also upload photos of any special events that happen at home.
