St Mary’s is linked with Abbot Alphege Academy, one of the primary schools in our Benefice – Revd Andrew Avramenko, our Curate, is one of the school’s Foundation Governors.
During the pandemic the school have been caring for the children’s learning and well-being, and we wanted to share a message from their Head Teacher, Vicky Dupras, with you.
Our children’s wellbeing is the most important thing to us, and feeling part of a connected community really supports wellbeing, especially at a time where it is so easy to feel isolated. We wanted to do something to help connect us even more as we have been apart for so long. The idea of the bear is to remind the children that they are amazing and exceptional, and we are incredibly proud of all of them. Our community has been outstanding throughout this lockdown. Every parent and carer has done their utmost for their children. Every child has done their absolute best with their learning. And every member of staff has gone above and beyond in our school on a daily basis. We are so proud of our community and our school. (Vicky Dupras, Head Teacher)
