"Through the pandemic St Mary's have been there for us helping throughout the duration of lockdown. They helped with providing children devices, getting them the education they needed and fun activities. The teachers called to check up on children asking if they were ok. It meant a lot."

We use Cooperative Learning standards, mastery approaches, metacognition, emerging technologies and the rights of the child to provide academic rigour and promote positive attitudes to learning. We base our strategic school improvement goals on research, evidence based good practice and the expertise of educators at all levels in school. This continues to be the vision for our remote curriculum. We continue to refine and redefine our objectives and approaches to ensure the best provision for all children.
Instructions for Parents and Pupils on how to access the appropriate remote learning:

"I really couldn’t ask for a better school for my girls. Everyone is so helpful and kind, especially the Pastoral Lead, who has helped us tremendously throughout lockdown. Whether she was dropping a food parcel, Easter eggs, little gifts for the kids or just a phone call to make sure we didn’t need anything or to make sure we were all doing ok."
Parents can help to support us in this by ensuring:
Your child is engaged online when asked and completes their work
Your child has the resources they need or contact school if you need support with this
Ensure school devices are looked after properly
Being engaged in their learning is the best mental health support children can have
"I will never forget the support that I received from St Mary’s during the pandemic, everything from the food parcels, to craft packages, to a phone call to offer help / advice & support. I cannot praise everyone enough. Honestly the pandemic has made me feel like St Mary’s is like one big family. I don’t have any family in Manchester apart from my sister. Seeing how everyone pulled together and helped others even with their own families to think about too. Was just such a nice feeling that I wasn’t alone" ❤"
"It was quite a moment to be back in class ! It was great to enjoy seeing him in class enjoying his maths work. It's a great morning to do work with the kids. Been about 2 years since last time. It's good to know where they are up to."
