General information for parents

We hope the information below will be of interest to you. St Mary's has a lot to offer with an interesting curriculum and dedicated staff.

Safeguarding - We take the safety of children very seriously and have three designated members of staff trained to level 3; they are Mrs Farmer, Mrs Geldard and Mrs Gerard. If you are concerned about the welfare and safety of a child in or out of school please make contact via the school office. Thank you.

   Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are traumatic events that affect children while growing up, such as suffering child maltreatment or living in a household affected by domestic violence, substance misuse or mental illness.

This short animated film has been developed to raise awareness of ACEs, their potential to damage health across the life course and the roles that different agencies can play in preventing ACEs and supporting those affected by them.

The film has been produced for Public Health Wales and Blackburn with
Darwen Local Authority.

Attendance- We are often asked if we can pass on a holiday request form seeking permission to take children out of school during term time. For many years now we have  not actually been  allowed to authorise holidays that are taken during term time.  If absence during term is caused by a holiday then the code ‘G’ is applied and this is recorded as ‘unauthorised absence’.  In some parts of the country (and in some Dorset schools) any absence due to a holiday will automatically result in a fine being imposed.  Dorset County Council are strongly encouraging this for holidays that are 5 (10 sessions) days or longer.
