Dear Parents, Carers and Friends of St Mary’s Catholic Primary School,


I would like to extend a warm welcome back to all the children, their parents and carers, families, friends and members of the local community who are central to the life of St Mary’s Catholic Primary School. Our whole school community values the contribution every child brings to our school which makes our school a happy and harmonious place to learn and work. Our mission statement is:


As we build God’s Kingdom on earth, we grow together, learn together, play together, pray together and stay together and this sentiment underpins all we do at St Mary’s.


Learning is our core purpose and we champion challenge and learning within a safe school environment where people are helpful, considerate and respectful of each other. This academic year our key focus is on making the learning engaging with a level of challenge which encourages our pupils to develop resilience, independence and persistence. This will facilitate lifelong learning.


Relationships and attitudes are very positive and an ethos exists in which learning together becomes an enjoyable and fulfilling experience for all. I feel privileged to be the head teacher of a school which is truly unique and which has such a strong involvement with its community.


Our school has a positive reputation for embracing and celebrating every kind of achievement. This is reflected in our commitment to inclusion and unity. At all times we strive for the highest standards in all areas of the curriculum for all children.


At St Mary’s Catholic Primary School we welcome parents as partners so that, together, we can promote high standards of learning, behaviour and attitudes to enable every child to be the best that they can be. We also welcome your involvement in all aspects of school life and would welcome you into our ‘Friends of St Mary’s’ parent’s association. Thank-you for choosing our school and hope that our website provides you with a flavour of what our school has to offer you and your child.


If you have not already done so I encourage you to come and visit us to find out more by having a tour of our school buildings and talking to our staff and children. Appointments can be made through the school office.


I look forward to a continued happy and successful relationship with you over the coming years.


With kind regards,

Jayne Pavitt
