Weekly Update for 17th November 2023
St Mary’s Remembers.... Eternal Rest Grant unto them... May they Rest in Peace. Amen
As part of the local Remembrance Day commemorations, pupils from St Mary’s took part in the annual Remembrance Sunday parade.
Those who took part, paraded our local area before arriving at Isleworth War Memorial, alongside other pupils and scouting organisations.
Whilst parading, they each wore sashes bearing a name of a fallen First World War servicemen, from Isleworth. After a short service of remembrance, we laid crosses bearing the names of the fallen and a wreath on behalf of our school.
We do this to ensure that the sacrifice of the 390 servicemen is not forgotten.
Hounslow Mental Health Support
Sarah Cripps, one of our Educational Mental Health Practitioners from the Hounslow Mental Health Support Team (MHST), is carrying out a wellbeing survey with parents and staff. The survey will be looking to gain a broader understanding on the school's approach to mental health/ wellbeing and how the MHST can best support parents, staff and children going forwards. The survey will take no more than 2-5 minutes to complete and all information provided will remain anonymous to staff and others members of the school. It would be greatly appreciated if this could be completed by no later than Friday 24th November at 5pm. Please also see the attached leaflets provided by MHST 1. For more information about the service (specifically 1:1 interventions with parents) 2. General advice on supporting your child’s well-being.

The Big Ambition (a message from the Children's Commissioner Dame Rachel De Souza)
The Big Ambition provides a much-needed opportunity for the children of England to tell political decision makers what is important to them ahead of the General Election. I will be sharing their responses with Government to ensure that children’s voices are heard. I want to ensure that the voices of all children in the London area are fairly represented in the findings of my survey so that I can share their views with the most senior members of the country.
I must reiterate that it is vital that all children have their voice heard through this survey because, as Children’s Commissioner for England, I have a statutory duty to protect and promote the views and interests of children.
