Each class in our school has a class saint who they pray to. These saints have been specifically chosen by our staff. Children complete work based on the saint and hold celebration days on their Saint’s day. If not possible (for example if it falls on a weekend or during holidays), an appropriate day is found on which to have a celebration.

EYFS – St Mary, 15th August – we repeat this because not all of our Reception children will have been at our nursery and is a good introduction to being within our school. With her feast day being in the Summer holidays, EYFS ensure they celebrate Mary as often as possible throughout the year.
