Hockey Tournament Success!

Four local schools battled against one another in the annual Year 5 and 6,St Mary’s Hockey Tournament. We entered three teams who all demonstrated excellent hockey skills and sportmanship to secure the three top places. A big thank you to the other schools for participating and to Swanage and Wareham Hockey Club for their support in organising and executing the tournament.

Worth Less Campaign

As mentioned in the February newsletter, a group of Dorset headteachers have formed a campaign called Worth Less aimed at getting a fairer funding in education.
They are getting increasingly worried about the financial position of Dorset schools and feel that parental support is crucial to getting action on this matter. You can read the letter sent to the Chancellor or the Exchequer here.

You can also look at the School Cuts website to see the likely effect on local schools’ future budgets.
