    Dear Parents and Carers

    Parents’ Evening Spring 2024 Online Appointment Booking

    I would like to invite you to attend our Spring Parents’ Evening. I am pleased to be able to offer face-to-face appointments. This is an important opportunity to meet with your child’s class teacher and provides you with an opportunity to discuss your child’s progress, behaviour, attendance and any pastoral issues. Some SEND pupils have a 20-minute appointment with both the class teacher and the SENCo, as requested by the class teacher. Due to time constraints only some SEND children have been selected to have a longer parent appointment. All other SEND pupils will have a normal 10 minute appointment with the class teacher, where their PLPs will still be shared.

    The school uses an easy to use online appointment booking system. This allows you to choose your own appointment times with teachers and you will receive an email confirming your appointments. 


    It is extremely important that parents do not arrive late as this could mean that you miss your appointment, as staff will be on a very tight schedule, in order to be able to meet with all the parents of all the pupils. 


    Appointments can be made until Tuesday 19th March at 12 midday (and Thursday 13th March for the SEND appointments). Please be aware that it is better to book as soon as you can as popular times will get filled quickly.


    Please visit to book your appointments. (A short guide on how to add appointments is included with this letter.) Login with the following information:

  • School will be open on Friday 19th January

    Thu 18 Jan 2024

    Dear Parents/Carers

    Thank you for your understanding, patience and support today, we sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused.

    We sadly had to close the school at very short notice due to a burst mains water pipe in the school kitchen, which caused extensive flooding. The maintenance teams have worked very hard throughout the day to repair the damage and carry out the big clean up. Due to the damage in the kitchen we will only be able to offer a  limited menu.

    If your child would prefer to bring a packed lunch because of the limited offer then please do so.

    We look forward to seeing everyone back in school tomorrow

    Kind regards

    Mrs Nott

    Thu 08 Sep 2022 Mrs Nott

    We are all deeply saddened to learn that Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has passed away. 
    She was a much-loved and respected figure around the world, Her Majesty was the longest serving monarch in the country’s history and  has been an inspiration to the people of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth throughout her historic reign. 
    Everyone at St Mary's Fields Primary School offers their sympathies to the Royal Family.


    Over the coming days and weeks, we will speak to the children and ensure that staff are available to support pupils that are affected by the sad news. 

    We will encourage pupils to look back with happy memories of our Jubilee Celebrations.

  • Year 4 Trip

    Thu 10 Feb 2022 School Office

    Dear Parents

    Regarding the Year 4, Jorvik (York) trip tomorrow
    We are very much looking forward to our visit to York and the Viking experience at Jorvik.
    This will be a fantastic opportunity for children to experience not just historical learning outside of the classroom; but the historic city of York too, with its famous walls and cobbled streets.

    Please arrive at school at 7:15 am promptly . The hall door will be open and here we will take the register before getting on the coach. The coach will leave at 7:30 so please do not be late. Please also collect your child from the hall when we return at approximately 16:30-17:00

    Please check below for what the children need to bring and make sure that they have a warm coat (and a hat if possible). There is a lot of walking so shoes need to be comfortable for this.

    Please also could you do a home COVID test (lateral flow test) either tonight or in the morning and make sure your child is well and has no symptoms before they leave

    We have heard this week that the gift shop at Jorvik is not open for school trips sadly.

    In order to make the most of our time, the day does start and finish earlier and later than usual. At times the children may be separated into smaller groups and experience the trip in different sequences, however they will remain under constant adult supervision at all times.
    7:30am – coach departs St. Mary’s Fields Primary School
    9:40-10:00am – coach arrives in York
    10:20am – entry into the Jorvik Centre
    12:10pm – lunch

    12:30pm – travel through the iconic Shambles area of York to reach the York Minster and Dean’s Park
    13:20pm – travel back towards the pick-up point along York’s famous walls
    14:00pm – depart for Leicester
    Approx. 16:30 -17:00pm – arrive back at St. Mary’s Fields Primary School

    Children will need to wear their school uniform and bring their own packed lunch for the day (food will be provided for those that qualify for free school dinners, but not for those who would otherwise choose school dinners). Packed lunches will need to be nut-free and not contain any fizzy drinks. Please note that we highly recommend that they bring additional food due to the length of time they will be gone. For this reason it is a good idea that children bring a bag with them to hold their items, but please consider the size of the bag as the Jorvik Centre does not allow any over the size of 38cmx30cm. We ask that children do not bring electronic devices on the trip, as we cannot be held responsible for them, and that they do not bring any more than £10 if they choose to bring any spending money.

    Yours Sincerely

    Mr King & Mr Stanley

  • Public Health Letter to Parents

    Fri 17 Dec 2021 Public Health Leicester

    15 December 2021


    Dear Parents and Carers


    Thank you for continuing to support your children’s education, especially with all the worries of the Covid pandemic. This week we have seen new rules come into place to help us all deal with the Omicron variant.


    The main ways to reducing the risk of Covid, including Omicron, are to wash hands frequently and to wear face coverings in crowded areas. Remember to socially distance if possible and to keep indoor areas well ventilated. This is especially important during the holiday period when families get together.


    If you or your child feels unwell with any of the Covid symptoms, please get a PCR test. If the test is positive you will need to self-isolate for 10 days. If you or your child is a close contact of a positive case and you are fully vaccinated, you will need to take daily lateral flow tests for 7 days. Please remember to report all test results.


    Vaccinations remain our best defence to protect ourselves and our families against Covid. If you have not yet had your vaccinations or your booster vaccination, please do book an appointment. This local NHS webpage gives options for booking your vaccination appointment in Leicester:


    If your child is 12 years old or over and has not yet had their first vaccination, please use the link above to book a vaccination appointment for them. If you know your child had their first vaccination 12 weeks ago you are now able to book their second vaccination. Check the link above for the local centres that offer vaccinations for 12-15year olds. This term many children in secondary schools have had Covid and missed a significant part of the term. Vaccination will reduce the spread and support children’s attendance at school.


    During the Christmas holiday, the Holiday Activity and Food (HAF) programme for children eligible for free school meals will be going ahead with limitations at some venues. Food should still be made available. Please check with your venue.


    We hope you have a relaxing and enjoyable break over the Christmas period.


    Please support your primary or secondary age child to do a lateral flow test before their return to school in the new year. This will help to reduce the risk of anyone coming back to school with Covid without realising it. Secondary pupils will also be offered onsite testing at their school at the beginning of term. Please do give permission for this testing.


    Thank you for all the support you have given to the work to reduce the risk of COVID-19 in Leicester.


    Yours sincerely


    Ivan Browne - Director of Public Health and Sports Services


    Martin Samuels - Strategic Director Social Care and Education

  • Good Bye

    Fri 17 Dec 2021 Mrs Dulieu

    Friday 17th December 2021


    Dear Parents/ Carers,


    I wanted to say again thank you so much for the support that you have shown me over the past 4 years as Headteacher. St Mary’s Fields has developed into an inspiring school for the children and I will miss them all greatly; they have made me promise to come back for a visit soon!


    As I have said previously, I am in no doubt that Mrs Nott and Miss Haycock will continue to lead the school brilliantly and I wish them and the whole school community good luck.


    Family Homework Project prizes

    Congratulations to Filip (yr5), Yuvraj (yr4), Mia (yr3), Dominiks (Yr2) and Sukhpreet (yr1) for winning the family homework project prizes. They have each received a £5 book token for their amazing efforts. I love seeing how creative our families are.



    • Children return to school on Wednesday 5th January
    • If any children develop Covid symptoms and then subsequently test positive, please email the school office so that staff and parents can be informed that they are close contacts
    • School will contact parents if covid guidelines change for schoosl. For example if the school are asked to return to bubbles (hopefully not!)


    Lastly I want to wish you all a happy and safe Christmas. Enjoy time with your family.


    Yours Sincerely


    Rebecca Dulieu
