Principal’s Corner
What an April!! The last month has been characterised by hard work and fun. Year 6 and Year 2 pupils under the direction of Mrs Shaw, Mrs Eckley and Mrs Kyles have all been working hard for their SATs. The pupils are making excellent progress so fingers crossed for fair test papers.
Red Nose Day was a day of fun with a Christian message of helping people who are in need. Dressed in red and with red noses, pupils ran a cake fair and entered com-petitions. They raised a very commendable £180. Well done to all. The Upper Juniors visited the Cathedral and had an Easter Experience which was both thoughtful and reflective. You can see Sam having his feet washed. I felt sorry for the warden. This was followed by a 12 o'clock visit to the Bell Tower and a walk on the roof. Finally we walked via Castle Green to King George’s Fields to enjoy an ice cream and last supper (picnic lunch). The Lower Juniors went in search of the Romans at Wroxeter you can see Callum constructing a Mosaic and three Romans preparing to bath in the bathing room. The Infants exciting trip to Goodrich Castle and Symonds Yat is currently in the planning stages.
On 4th & 5th April OFSTED arrived and I think the three quotes above sum up our school. I am pleased for all the Staff and Pupils who work so hard and a big thank you must go to the parents who impressed the inspector with their positive words and support. It’s your school.

Sport
At St Mary’s we see sports activities as an important aspect in the development of the whole child. On Monday afternoons this term Caleb Kent from Church Street Cricket Coaching will be coaching our Juniors. On Fridays the infants will return to the pool up to and including the 9th June. Congratulations go to Drew & Evie who achieved their Red Badges, Daisy a Green and Toby a Yellow. Lily and Annabel both gained an ASA Bronze Challenge and Annabel her Bronze Backstroke Speed award.
The M team, Mike & Mark, just missed out getting to the final by one try in the Luctonians Rugby Tagfest.
Ivy who in a 5-9 race at Ludlow finished 5th out of 65. Obviously, has a lot of Mums genes.
Congratulations and done to all.
