Dear St Mary’s Families,


We now only have two weeks to go before the end of the school year and what a year it has been. It has been such a difficult time for everyone but there is at last hope that things will slowly return to normal.


As you may have heard from 19th July the Government will be removing most restrictions. I attended a meeting with the Public Health Leader in Croydon on Tuesday however and they have advised us that as Covid has been spreading extremely rapidly in Croydon schools and many have had to close, it would be prudent to leave restrictions in place for the final week.


As we are determined to send you all off on holiday as healthy as possible, we will continue to keep the classes separate to restrict any potential spread of the virus. We have also been advised to continue to restrict access into the school until the end of term.   


We pray that the next school year will be a normal one but, in the meantime, rest assured, we have lots of plans in place for our children to enjoy the end of the school year and we will ensure that our Year 2 and Year 6 leavers get a good St Mary’s send-off. 


Unfortunately, we have been informed that the Year 6 secondary transfer day has been cancelled but I am sure that your child’s new school will maintain contact.


May God bless you all,

Miss O’Callaghan

Executive Headteacher
