Welcome to St. Mary’s CE Primary School
‘An Outstanding Church School’ – Inspection Report
‘Excellence Together, Learning Through Faith’
I am very proud to be leading such a warm, caring and friendly school at this busy and exciting time in St. Mary’s history. In September 2014 we celebrated our 150th Anniversary and became a one-form entry Primary School with a Nursery. St. Mary’s Church of England School is a Voluntary Aided school and enjoys strong links with St. Mary’s Church, next door to the school site. We are a happy school and provide an exciting and stimulating learning environment where we live out our Christian Values, celebrating the uniqueness of each individual. We welcome children and families of all faiths and of none.
Our dedicated team of staff and governors look forward to working with you in a constructive and mutually respectful partnership to support your children’s learning.
We are committed to ensuring our pupils are valued and reach their full potential, ready to succeed and become confident young adults.
I hope you enjoy browsing our website and if you require any further information, you are most welcome to contact the school office, or make an appointment to view the school and meet with me.
Goodbye to our first ever Year 6 children.
We wish you every happiness and success at secondary school
Holiday Prayer adapted from the Diocesan Prayer for Schools for this summer
Give support to all staff, pupils, parents and governors, particularly during changes fast approaching. Guide us in all that we do. Give us the comfort of knowing that we are safe in your arms. Bless us as we are refreshed and restored during the summer holidays. Amen
Parents and carers can give their views of our school at any time of the school year and at the time of a school inspection using an online questionnaire called Parent View.
When our school is notified of its next Ofsted inspection, parents will be invited to give their views about the school to inspectors using the Parent View online facility as this has replaced Ofsted’s paper questionnaire. Please make sure we have your most up-to-date contact details.
Please register with an email address and a password at https://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk. Once your login has been activated, it only takes a few minutes to complete answers to 12 short questions.
Your views are important in helping inspectors make a decision about our school, and to help us know what is going well and what could be improved.
If you do not have a computer or an email address or if you would like help to use Parent View, please come into school and ask the school office.
When booking summer holidays, please note that children return to school on Monday 5th September 2016. The whole year term dates for 2016/17 are available on the website.
