YEAR SIXWe are 'THE GUARDIANS'
Welcome to Year 6, ‘The Guardians’ of St Mary Magdalene’s. Not only that, we are the ‘Gardeners’ to our amazing ‘Seeds’ (The Reception children). In this final year, the children will have the opportunity to flourish and reach their full potential.
Upholding the reputation of being ‘The Guardians’, comes with great responsibilities. Throughout the year, the children will promote our Catholic Ethos to ‘Love One Another’ and continue to act as role models to others. As a team, we know that God is always at the heart of our journey and this will give us courage to be outstanding in whatever we do.
OUR CLASS TEACHER
My name is Mr McCaffrey and I am the Year 6 class teacher.
I have been lucky enough to work in education over the years and I am delighted to be part of an amazing school with fantastic children and dedicated members of staff. I will always be a role model to the children and give my absolute most to ensure that every child has the opportunity to reach their full potential. Having got a sporting background, I will try and motivate children through sport and Exercise. Being a Blackbelt 2nd Dan and currently training with the GB Jujitsu team, my life ambition is to represent my country at the highest level. Having travelled the world, I love sharing stories with the children, so that one day, they might have the courage to explore the world and create their own journey in life.

If children have earrings in on P.E. days they will not be able to take part in P.E. that day.
Children who have earrings in must either; not wear them on P.E. days or be able to take them out themselves. Staff are not allowed to take them out or tape them over.
Wearing earrings in P.E. represents a potential hazard not only to the wearer but also to other children. Medical advice confirms that jewellery worn in physical education lessons is an unnecessary risk and should be avoided at all times – a risk we at St Mary Magalene’s are not prepared to take whilst your children are on school premises/in our care. Serious accidents have occurred as a result of contact between pupils wearing earrings or studs and other pupils or equipment, thus damaging the ear, or where items of jewellery have caught in apparatus and torn the ear lobe. Thank you for your support and understanding in this matter.
As you may be aware, in Year 2, Key Stage 1 SAT’s will take place during May. Though this may seem a long way off, in reality the children need to prepare now to be ready for the assessments and tests they will undertake. READ MORE
