Our School

St Mary’s Primary School

Welcome to our small family oriented school. Please call in or ring the office on 01995 61367 to speak to Mrs Mary Morris our Head teacher or Mrs Lisa Cookson, our School Business Manager if you have any questions. We have places available in some of our classes so you are very welcome to drop by anytime if you would like to come and have a look around. You do not need to make an appointment – we welcome visitors at any time.

All children and their families from all religions and backgrounds are welcome at St Mary’s School. We are an inclusive school that celebrates  diversity. Although we are a Catholic school, we love to find out about all faiths and cultures and we positively encourage all our children to be respectful and tolerant towards everyone in our world. Many of our children at St. Mary’s are not Catholics and we all work together as part of a bigger team.

Our school day begins at 8.45am with the gates being opened from 8.35am, allowing parents to drop off from then. A member of staff is always outside from 8.35am. The school day ends at 3.15pm and the staff bring all the children out and hand them over to parents when they see them at the school gate.

We have a celebration assembly every Friday afternoon at 2.45pm for parents and friends to join us to share in the good work of the children.

Throughout the year, we have occasions where parents are invited into school to share food and drink such as teh MacMillan Coffee Morning, Lentern Lunch and Harvest Lunch.
