Today we said goodbye to four fantastic members of staff – Rob Blyth who is moving to teach in another school and then Dave Wells, Jan Leek and Mr Stone who are all retiring. We wish them all the best for their future.
For wonderful behaviour in his class, Jan and Val thought that Charlie deserved reward. Chris took him to visit Aston Engineering Racing and Wilkinson Coachbuilders where they look after Aston Martins. Some of the rarest cars in the world! What a treat!
As families and our school community are aware, St Martins had an Ofsted Inspection on the 6th and 7th of June. We are thrilled to share with you that the outcome of the Inspection was OUTSTANDING!

This morning we held our annual Prize Day celebration. St Martins moved in to the Noel-Baker theatre for an hour and celebrated together the achievements of those in school with parents, carers and family members. Afterwards, we all came back to St Martins to a surprise ice cream van and had a treat. What a super morning! More photographs can be viewed here.
St Martins school choir decided they’d help raise money for the Wheelchair accessible minibus and, on the suggestion of Kimberley McCallion, went busking!

An amazing feat pulled off with absolute style (as if we’d expect anything less). A huge thanks need to go […]

The School Council have had their final meeting of the year and it was a great opportunity to celebrate their achievements. They have communicated, worked together and achieved lots of amazing things. Examples include; raising money for Comic Relief, meeting a therapy dog, visiting the Mayor, raising money for books in school and supporting Debbie with teacher recruitment. Everyone is extremely proud of all of the hard work and effort from the School Council.
