Headteacher's Welcome

Educating children is a very special opportunity and one that we take very seriously here at St Mary's Church of England Primary School. Whether children are in Reception, starting their educational journey with us, or in Year 6 and preparing for their secondary schools, their personal and academic progress is monitored closely and all children are equally valued in a safe and supportive environment.

At the heart of everything we do is our Christian ethos: we enjoy close links with the local church and this further supports our core values. The children are nurtured within our inclusive ethos and we strive to ensure that all children achieve their potential both inside and outside the classroom. We are blessed with a committed and dedicated staff who know the children well and who work closely together and in partnership with our parents to ensure the best outcomes that the children can achieve. At the end of Year 6, we want the children to leave us more confident, caring and successful human beings ready for the secondary school of their choice.

For parents, choosing the right school for your son or daughter will be one of the most important decisions that you will ever make. This website can only give you a flavour of what life is like at St Mary's, so I would encourage you to come and visit us and experience the school for yourself. You will be assured of a very warm welcome and I look forward to meeting you.
