Lexia Reading

Please encourage your child to use Lexia on a regular basis. This is a great interactive spelling and reading programme.

  • Log in - first name and the first letter of your surname (eg Sarah Smith would be sarahs). 
  • Password - read

Lexia does not work in Internet Explorer, please try another browser such as Google Chrome or Safari instead

If asked for 'teacher e-mail' input the following:

This should connect you to the St Mary's login page where you can put your child's name and password (read).

PE Kit

Our PE days are Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Children are to wear their PE kit to school on the days that they have PE. Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit which consists of a white t-shirt, navy shorts and plimsoles or trainers. During the colder weather your child should wear the School PE jumper.

If your child has to attend an event such as Mass or go on a school trip, they will be required to wear their school uniform on that day. PE kit should be brought to school and children will change for their PE lesson accordingly. If your child has a sports club before school, uniform should be brought to change into, once the club has finished.

If your child has a club after school and it is not a PE day, uniform should be worn as normal and PE kit should be brought to change into before the club begins.

If your child plays football in the court they are welcome to bring in trainers to keep in their lockers to wear during lunchtime.
