Parents

St Marylebone School is closed.

From Friday 20th March until further notice, St Marylebone School is closed, in line with government instruction. 

We opened in the week of 23rd March only for certain groups of students in line with government instruction.  The number attending was extremely low. Having worked closely with those families and following the government’s advice, we have established that these children and the staff required to support them are safer at home than travelling to school and mixing with others.  As such, the School is now closed to everyone.

Contacting the School:
If parents or carers need to contact a member of staff, visit this page to find out how to email them.  This page includes information about staff email addresses, safeguarding contacts and SEN.   Students should contact their teachers only via Google Classroom.

Students learning at home:
As per the closure letters, students are all being set work on Google Classroom to complete at home.  All communication with teachers about this school work should be via Google Classroom. 

We will also soon set up a way for parents to get weekly updates about what school work has been set on Google Classroom for their child.  There are also lots of resources on websites such as Newsround, BBC Bitesize and BBC Teach which help parents know what kind of learning their child could be doing. 
Here is guidance on supporting children with additional learning needs.

Students’ wellbeing mental health and safety online:

This is of course on our minds. We recommend that the day is structured, not unlike the school day, with designated learning time, breaks for exercise, play and eating. Time away from screens and phones is really important.

Guidance about wellbeing, mental health and staying safe online can be read here.

Free School Meals:
The Department for Education is planning to launch a national voucher scheme for pupils entitled to Free School Meals. In the meantime the School intends to issue Sainsbury’s e-Gift Cards to parents / carers of these pupils. We expect to be able to do this in the coming days by text, which will provide a link to an e-Gift Card that can be presented on a mobile phone in store or, if preferred, printed off on paper to be taken to a store. If your child receives Free School Meals and you have not received your voucher by text in by the morning of Monday 30th March, please email info@stmaryleboneschool.com and with the heading: FSM voucher not received, giving your name and your child’s name. 

GCSE and A-Level grades:
We know that GCSE and A-Level students will be anxious about how their grades are to be awarded and what this will mean for 6th Form or university entry.  The School is awaiting clear guidance and instructions from the Department for Education about this. When we know how it is to work, we will inform families.

Next steps:
We will be in touch if developments affect the School’s position and we hope it is not long until we see you all again.  Keep learning, loving and being kind to each other!

We wish everyone in our community safety, health and peace in this difficult time and hope it will not be long before we see you again.  

Ms Pugh.

  • Free School Meals

     

    St Marylebone families receiving Free School Meals will shortly receive an eCode from the Department for Education’s National Voucher Scheme managed by Edenred. One of the family’s primary contacts should receive an email on Monday 20th April with instructions to redeem your eCode for an e-Gift Card to the value of £15 (£3 per day) for the week commencing 20th April. You can choose from a selection of six supermarkets for your e-Gift Card. We are aware that there are some delays in processing these eCodes at the moment but we would hope that you do receive the email at some point during the week commencing 20th April. You will receive a similar email each week during the school closure period.

    If you have not received your voucher by Friday 24th April, please contact info@stmaryleboneschool.com with the subject heading “Free School Meals voucher” and be sure to include your child’s name and form.

  • The St Marylebone CE School is one of the highest performers in England, winning national awards

    The St Marylebone CE School has been recognised nationally by receiving prestigious awards for their outstanding key stage 4 and 5 results last year. The awards are based on 2019 data provided by the Department for Education to the Schools, Students and Teachers network (SSAT). 

    The St Marylebone CE School was found to be among the best performing non-selective secondary schools and sixth forms in the country, receiving three awards for being in the top 10% nationally for attainment and for being in DfE Band 1 for student progress at key stage 4. The school was also recognised for being in the top 10% nationally for student attainment at key stage 5 in academic subjects. 

    The SSAT Educational Outcomes database compares all state-funded schools in England and the highest performing schools in a range of key measures are awarded SSAT Educational Outcomes Awards. 

    Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said: 

    “Congratulations to The St Marylebone CofE School on winning three SSAT Educational Outcomes awards. This success is down to the superb learning and teaching, outstanding support and inspirational leadership of students, staff, parents and governors. You have made a huge difference to the lives of the young people in your school. Thank you.”
