Let us pray that those in charge of finance will work with
governments to regulate financial markets and protect citizens from its dangers.
May is the Month of Mary
May is a very special month in the Catholic calendar as it marks the month of Mary. This is a time when we should take time to think about Mary and reflect on how she is the Mother of Jesus and Mother to us all. During this month we should take time out from our day to reflect and pray to Mary, especially when we are all living through such new and uncertain times.
Below we have included a range of prayers and different activities which relate to Mary our Mother. There are lots of different ideas for which you can do during this special month of May to support you with thinking about her and praying to her.
Please centre your Collective Worship on reflecting on Mary during this month.
Every year group has certain mysteries of the Rosary that they should be supporting the children to pray. Please go to the Prayers to Learn Throughout the Year and click on your Year Group Prayer Section below to find, which mysteries of the Rosary your Year Group should be using.

Please remember in your prayers the Catholic Children in Year 3, 4 and 6 who will be receiving the Sacraments of Reconciliation (Tuesday 8th June) and Holy Communion (Saturday 12th June) for the first time.
Catholic Pupil Profile
The Catholic Schools Pupil Profile supports our pupils' spiritual, moral, vocational, social and cultural development. It is used as a basis for policy and curriculum development and thus underpins the whole of the Catholic life of the school. The Jesuit Institute and in particular Fr. Adrian Porter have kindly allowed us to use not only the profile but also the visual images which bring the virtues based profile to life.
The values and virtues of the Profile support the faith life of the many faith communities who attend English Martyrs' Catholic Primary School. In celebrating them, we find that it brings us together in our mutual pursuit of a faith-filled life.
