What a very busy term we have. Please try to join us as often as you can to celebrate with the children. ​

First Steps

Our Parent's and Toddler's Group, First Steps, meets every Wednesday morning from 10.00 a.m. until 12 noon and they welcome all new comers. Come and meet the rest of the gang and let your children meet some others of their own age.

Uniform and PE Kit

Thank you for all your efforts with ensuring we have the highest possible standards of uniform. Helping us to ensure this is maintained supports us all. This means no trainers for normal footwear and sensible accessories, please don't have headwear that stops other children being able to see the teacher! Could I ask you to also ensure that your child's name is on all their pieces of uniform, especially jumpers and coats?It is also very important that all children have the correct PE Kit. They are not allowed to wear football shirts. The PE Kit consists of a white t-shirt with logo, black shorts and a pair of pumps. It is advisable that the juniors have a pair of trainers for outdoor PE. It is best for all children to keep their kit in school and to take it home each half term to be cleaned. It needs to be kept in a named drawstring PE bag.




Miss Walton has become Mrs Parker over the summer holidays and is starting her first full year as our new Deputy Headteacher.

As you are all aware, we are now using the Schoolcomms system for school meals and tuck. Although a lot of parents are set up on the system, we know that a few parents are still experiencing problems.  We're having help from Halton to resolve these small issues and hopefully within the next week or so, everything will be up and running, without any problems.

Just a couple of points to remember. If you change your email address or your mobile number, could you please let us know immediately as the system will not work?  Also, there are two sections on the system: School Meals and Tuck.  As well as crediting the School Meals section, you will need to credit Tuck, if you want your child to have it.

With regard to Universal Free School Meals, if your child is in Year 3, please remember that you will now have to pay for their school dinners, if they are not eligible for Free School Meals. In a few weeks time, we will also put  another section on the system so that you can pay for School Trips etc.  We have had a really positive response from parents so far and the feeling is that it is an easy system to use.  Bear with us and hopefully by next week we will be up and running without any  problems.

Mrs Walton's & Mrs Smith's Retirement

At the end of last term we said our goodbyes to Mrs Walton & Mrs Smith who both retired after many years service to St. Martin's.

We had a fabulous celebration at the end of term to say thank you to them and  they will be missed dearly.

We do hope they are both enjoying the early days of retirement and hope they keep in touch!

A message from Mrs Walton:

Dear Parents,

I just want to say a very big thank you for all the beautiful cards and gifts I received on my retirement. It was very generous of you and I am very     grateful. The 38 years I have spent at St Martin's have gone so fast and during that time it has been a pleasure teaching your children and working with so many families. I am taking away wonderful memories of a very special place. Thank you once again.'

Welcome to Father Ravi

I would ask you all to join me in welcoming Father Ravi to the parish of the Divine Saviour and to St. Martin's school in particular. It is very appropriate that Fr Ravi has taken up his place this term as he is from India and Mother Teresa has just been canonized. I know he has many tales to tell of his life in India and we are all looking forward to a long a fruitful relationship with him.

Fr Lucas has now taken up his new role at St Anthony's Wythenshaw and he has taken all our best wishes with him.

St. Martin's 40th Anniversary​

This term we are celebrating our 40th Anniversary. Bishop Mark will be saying Mass for us all on Friday 23rd September at 10.00am. It would be wonderful if you could come and join in the celebrations. After Mass refreshments will be available.

As it's such a special occasion the children will be having a 70s picnic and then a Fun afternoon.

In the evening, 7.00 - 8.30pm we are going to hold a 70s Disco for the children and a  Parents 70s Bingo. The children can come dressed up for the occasion and parents you can get out your      old platform shoes and flares for Bingo!

There will be a charge of £1 for the Children's 70s Disco and this will cover sweets, drinks and crisps.

St Martins, RuncornCinema Trip

Once again we have managed to book all the children to go to the cinema. The tickets to the cinema are free as part of the Into Film Festival but we do have to pay for the coaches. The cost will be £2 per child to a maximum of £5 per family.

The Infants will be going on Wednesday 9th   November to see Ice Age: Collision course at Cineworld Runcorn.

The Juniors will be going on Friday 11th November to see Pete's Dragon once again at      Cineworld Runcorn.

I know all the children thoroughly enjoy this little trip and it is a great experience for those who do not go to the cinema too often.

Parking Outside School

I have received a letter from Cheshire           Constabulary asking  everyone to park        responsibly. They will be visiting schools to ensure that everyone is kept safe particularly the children.

In particular they wish you to take note of the following:

· Do not park on yellow 'zig-zags'

· Do not park in designated bus stops

· Do not obstruct residential driveways or    access to property

· Do not park opposite or in close proximity to a junction, the Highway code recommends leaving a distance of 32 ft/10m, anything less than this can be seen as causing an       unnecessary obstruction

The best advice is to ask yourself, 'Am I risking a child?' not 'Am I risking a ticket?'

Breakfast Club

Our Breakfast Club continues its great work. It is open from 7.30am – 8.45am and only costs £1.50 per child which is great value including their breakfast. Please note the children are not allowed into the school or onto the playground before 8.45am as there is no supervision. If your child arrives at school earlier than this, then they need to go to the Breakfast Club

St Martins, Runcorn

After School Club

Our after school club is now very well established. It takes place immediately after school until 4.00pm and costs £1 per child. For this they are supervised and get a drink and a biscuit. This is tremendous value for money. Please take note that due to this provision any child not collected by 3.20pm will automatically be taken to the club and parents will have to pay the fees.
