Message to Parents

Dear Parents
Firstly, let me congratulate you on the spectacular support you have given to your children during this time of home learning and online school activities.
We in St Mary’s have many issues to consider in how best to continue to support children and families at home and to manage the time taken to plan and prepare for such activities.
After close examination of the demands of continuing online activities both from a school and a home per perspective, I have decided to suspend all online activities on Fridays. This will now be a planning day for staff and a day for families and children to use away from the demands of online learning.
Your child’s teacher will be in contact with you after mid-term to organise a 10 min phone call, to discuss work done and the general progress of your child/children.
In the meantime if you have any issues of concern do not hesitate to contact me.
 Yours Sincerely
Peter McDonnell
