Headteacher's Welcome

I am delighted to welcome you to St Mary’s Catholic Primary School.  We really are more than Just a School, we are a family Living; Loving; Learning together on a daily basis.  

We understand that choosing the ‘right’ school is one of the most important decisions you will make for your child.  Our website will provide you a window into life at St Mary’s but we really do encourage you to visit us and experience what it is that makes us such a special learning community where we work tirelessly to ensure children reach their potential.

We pride ourselves on working hard to identify each child’s individual needs, nurture their strengths and provide full support for any development areas.  This enables all of our children to reach their full potential and enjoy their schooling with greater confidence.  Pupils at St Mary’s making significantly above average progress from their individual starting points.

We believe that as St Oscar Romero said “aspire not to have more but to be more’ and use this to underpin all that we do.  Driving all that we do is our mastery and curiosity curriculum and the aim that All St Mary’s Pupils Investigate, Research and Explore in all of their learning journeys. 

We can provide wrap-around care for those parents who would like a different approach to after school care, or who require longer hours to be covered, as part of our co-curricular clubs or our Sunrise and Sunset wrap around clubs. 

We are proud to be a Catholic Academy within the Bosco Catholic Education Trust, but warmly welcome families of all faiths and beliefs, and none.  

Every day is open day – come and visit us!  Our Year 6 House Captains will provide a tour of the school and you will be able to meet myself or a member of the leadership team. 

Mrs Irvine, Headteacher
