About Us

At St Mary’s Primary School we believe that children thrive in an environment in which they are happy, challenged and secure.

We aim to provide the best primary education in a stimulating and creative environment, so that every child realises his or her potential. We will instill a love of learning inspired by quality first teaching, nurturing and developing individual strengths and talents. We will encourage and celebrate creativity and imagination as well as effort and achievement.  As a Christian community we will teach the importance of moral values and consideration and respect of others.

Our year 6 children, will be well prepared for the next stage in their education, leaving us feeling confident, young people ready to succeed and enjoy the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead of them.

Our overarching aim is to equip all of our children with the knowledge, skills and values they will need to become responsible citizens within their community
