Making friends....

Stella Maris Buddy System

When a new pupil arrives at Stella Maris they are paired with an older boy or girl ‘buddy’ who will help them around the school and explain everything they might not understand – like where to hang bags/coats or how the merit badge system works.

As a result our pupils make friends very quickly with both children in their own and other age groups throughout the school. It’s our aim to settle new starters into school life as quickly and comfortably as possible.

Responsibility and rewards....

Merit System & House Teams

All pupils from Year 1 upwards are given a place in one of two ‘House Teams’: Matthew (blue) and Mark (red). Children earn merit marks for good work and behaviour and they take part in a number of team competitions throughout the year. Nursery and Reception children earn electronic 'dojos' for good work and behaviour. Each Friday in assembly class teachers award house merit badges / certificates for exceptional work during the week and the pupils’ names will be included in the school’s weekly newsletter.
