Phillippa Denney, Headteacher.



Our School is working towards the Artsmark Gold Award this year and the pupils are having lots of opportunities to develop their artistic skills. Each term a child from each year group is presented with an Art Award by Mrs Turner and the winners from Summer 2015 for their work on landscapes are pictured below.

 Our Art Award Winners for Summer 2015


Meet The Teachers

We had excellent parent support for our Meet The Teachers Event last week with over 70% of parents attending. If you were unable to attend you can access the information booklets on our school website.


Lion’s Charity Swim

Each year we take part in the Charity Swim organised by the Oadby and Wigston Lions. Money raised is shared between the Lion’s charities and our school. In the past we have successfully raised money for essential equipment and this year we would like to put any monies raised towards a pirate ship for our playground. If you would like your child to take part please collect a letter from the school office.


Name Labels

Please clearly label your child’s school uniform. We have many unnamed blue jumpers in our cloakrooms making it difficult to reunite them with the rightful owner.


Photographer -Individual and Family Photos

If you would like your child to be photographed with their siblings please come to the school hall for 8.50am on Monday 21st September.


McMillan Coffee Morning

We will be holding a McMillan coffee morning on Friday 25th September at 10.30am. Please join us if you are able.


Church Services

During the school year we hold two Church Services on a Sunday. These are Harvest and Christingle. These services include performances from the pupils and all families are warmly invited to join us. It is a lovely opportunity to feel part of the Church community. Please make a note of the dates: Harvest Sunday 27th September 2015 at 3pm and Christingle Sunday 6th December 2015  at 3pm.


Open Morning

On Thursday 29th October at 9.30am we will be holding an open morning for parents of pupils starting in the academic year 2016-2017. If you know anyone wishing to enrol for Kilby St Mary’s please let them know about this date.

SATs Week

SATs week for Y6 pupils is in the week beginning 9th May 2016. This is a very important week for Y6 pupils and is also used as an assessment week for all pupils in school. It is very important for all children to be in school during this week.

Money on a Monday Please

Can all monies for lunches, trips etc. be submitted to the office on a Monday in an envelope detailing what the money is for. This enables office staff to bank all money at the same time. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
