Dear parent /carer
Thank you to all the parents and students who attended the recent School Opening event and Open Evening; I am sure many of you will have read the super news reports in both the Advertizer and the Shropshire Star documenting these events and others.
I am delighted to announce the following staff appointments:
Joining us as Assistant Head in our Primary phase is Carol Jones. Many of you will already know Carol; she joins us in January following her time at Gobowen School where she is currently the deputy head following a long secondment as the acting headteacher. Carol has strong connections to our school and community and will be a real asset to our team.
Alex McKinnon joins us from Church Stretton School as our Head of Mathematics.
Appointed to Head of English is Rhian Phoenix; Rhian has worked at the school for many years and will now lead the department.
Phase Managers have been appointed and I welcome Zoe Mottershaw and John Holmes to these exciting roles. Primarily, these roles will focus on pastoral issues as well as ensuring students make required progress across all their subjects.
Just as a reminder, if parents have an issue they need to raise with school, the following procedure may be of use:
|Primary parent||Secondary parent|

Message from the Head of School
St Martins School is a very special place and it is my privilege and pleasure to be leading the school at this exciting stage in the schools history.
As a 3-16 through school at the heart of the community of St Martins, we are able to deliver child centred, individually tailored education because of our small size and unique position in the community.
The family ethos of the school surrounds all who work and study here creating a safe, supportive and nurturing environment. We value academic progress and social development equally .
Our children are individuals, respected for their differences and celebrated for their strengths. Within this caring family environment our children feel confident to push themselves to achieve the best they can, they enjoy an exciting and sometimes daring curriculum which challenges and stretches them. We love our school and we hope when you visit you will too.
I look forward to meeting you all on Open Day.
It is with great pleasure I write to invite you to join students, staff, parents and the community at the St Martins School Official Opening Ceremony. I am delighted to confirm that ex student Mikey Hall, an archer who represented Shropshire in the Invictus Games, will be our guest of honour.
The ceremony will take place on Tuesday 7 October starting at 6.30pm, with ribbon cutting and a buffet prepared by our GCSE Food Technology students and staff. There will be an opportunity to have a tour around the new areas of school followed by a Celebration Concert in the Arts Centre.To ensure we have accurate numbers for catering and for the concert please complete and return the tear off slip by Friday 3 October, or email my PA Clare Ellis at email@example.com

How do I find out my GCSE exam results?
There are two ways of doing this:
You (or your representative) may come into school Thursday 21st August 2014 to collect the results slips from 10.30am from The Hub next to Main Reception.
If someone is collecting on your behalf they must bring a letter signed by you giving them permission to obtain them and photo ID so we can confirm their identity.
If you cannot collect them on the day we can post them to you, but you must leave a stamped self-addressed envelope with the Exams Office before the school closes for the Summer Holidays on Thursday 17th July.
For Data Protection reasons we are not able to give examination results over the telephone or send them by email.
