Welcome to St Mary’s Primary School

Welcome to St Mary’s R.C. Primary School website. Our website is designed to keep parents informed of news and developments in school and to introduce new parents to our school community. I am sure it will provide an invaluable insight into St Mary’s family and our ethos which puts the child at the heart of all we do.

St Mary’s is a vibrant school with a friendly atmosphere with Jesus at the heart of all we do.  As reported in our Section 48 inspection July 2018 “the atmosphere at St Mary’s is one of warmth, ease and harmony.  The pupils are articulate, caring and respectful towards each other and all adults associated in the school.  Pupils demonstrate a confidence and belief in themselves which enables them to be resilient and responsive to challenge.”    Our children are caring, responsible and thoughtful and “are extremely proud of their school and feel very safe”.

Through our engaging and enriching curriculum, the children develop a love of learning and acquire the skills, knowledge and understanding to be citizens in the 21st century.  We have made pupil well-being a high priority within St Marys, recognising that children will only achieve their full potential if they feel happy and secure.

At St Mary’s we welcome children and families to our school community with other faiths or no faith, we include and welcome everyone with no preconditions.  It is part of our Catholic faith that we welcome everyone, in the same way God welcomes and loves each of his children.

We are fully committed to the safeguarding of all our pupils.  With the support of our school community, we proactively teach our pupils how to keep themselves safe online.

Together, we all grow and learn with fun, friends, family and faith.

We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website and that you find the information you are looking for.  Please feel free to contact the school direct with any queries you may have.
