Blessed by God so that we may help others

Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Education


In preparation for Advent, pupils created classroom displays with advent wreaths.¬† In our school foyer we had a ‘Kindness Tree’ encouraging people to do one kind thing each day in the lead up to Christmas.¬† Some of our classrooms had their own ‘kindness calendars’ too.

Meldon Nativity

This year our EYFS class, Meldon, performed a nativity for the school and parents/ carers.  All of the children worked very hard to prepare for the performance and were brave to perform in front of so many people.  The event went very well and reminded everyone about the Christmas story and the real meaning of Christmas.

Remembrance Day

Two of our pupils represented St Mary’s Catholic Primary School at the Remembrance Day service in Buckfastleigh by laying a wreath on the war memorial as part of the service.



We celebrated our Harvest Mass again this year and lots of parents/ carers attended.  Each class also made food which was sold after school to sell after school to raise money for CAFOD.



This year the school is working with the music department at Buckfast Abbey to offer the opportunity for pupils to become Choristers as part of the Buckfast Abbey choir.  The children have choir practices before school as well as an after school practice and then sing in the Abbey on a Sunday.
