Principal's Message

St Mary’s Primary School, provides a welcoming, attractive and stimulating environment, which supports pupils’ learning, and celebrates their academic and non-academic achievements. We provide a broad and balanced curriculum, which develops the skills, concepts and knowledge, necessary for future learning and living. To assist us in our efforts we work in close partnership with our parents. Our staff, through their enthusiasm, dedication and hard work, support the pupils, and provide effective education for all of them, in all aspects of their development. We enable our pupils to reach their full potential irrespective of race, gender, age or ability.

We want our children

  • to develop as confident, disciplined and enquiring learners, able to make informed choices and decisions.
  • to enjoy reading and to develop a confidence with language which will enable them to communicate effectively with others.
  • to develop the skills and knowledge of mathematics to enable them to cope confidently with everyday situations
  • to know and understand their world through scientific, historical, geographical and religious inquiry and to come to an understanding of their responsibilities to care for the environment
  • to develop practical, creative, artistic and physical skills.

St Mary’s Primary School is a Catholic school with strong links to the parish, church and local community. We aim to establish a community, centred on Christ, so that His values and gospel message permeate the whole life of our school. We are firmly committed to:

  • the aims of Catholic education
  • developing positive effective pastoral care systems in our school
  • establishing close links with the home, the parish and the wider community

Our website aims to keep pupils and parents fully informed of school life, as well as to give visitors and prospective parents and pupils a flavour of our school. It is updated weekly with news, events and all the latest school activities. We hope you will find it useful and interesting.

Visits from prospective parents and pupils are encouraged and can be organised by contacting the school. Thank you for visiting.

Play, Learn and Grow…Together!

Nut Allergies

Please do not send any types of foods containing any type of nuts into school for lunches as we have children with severe nut allergies. 

Please check the labels on food being sent into school to ensure there are no traces of nuts.

Food containing any types of nut product will have to be confiscated.

We cannot allow products in school if the label states; "may contain traces of nuts."

We have children with severe nut allergies in the school.
