St Mary's Catholic Academy lies at the heart of the parish community and it benefits from lots of helpers.
The help we receive from parents and parishioners is invaluable and is much appreciated by staff. Parents interested in helping within school, and who have the necessary free time, should speak to any member of the teaching staff.
Parents can help in many different ways, including:
•Sharing skills and interests e.g. talking about their job, helping with computer activities
•Listening to children read
•Accompanying children on educational visits
•Making costumes for productions
All helpers in school are all checked by the Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly CRB check) in line with child protection guidelines.
