Welcome to St Mary’s Catholic Primary School! I am delighted and proud to be Headteacher at such a fun and vibrant school where pupils, staff, governors, parents and the school community work extremely hard and have high expectations of one another. We are committed to the highest standards of teaching and learning – achieved through a combination of challenge, support, encouragement and praise, to ensure that all students fulfil their potential.
At St Mary’s Catholic Primary School you will find a welcoming and purposeful environment, with relationships built on mutual respect. Our supportive pastoral systems help pupils to achieve beyond their expectations and develop a strong sense of responsibility for themselves, their peers and the wider world. St Mary’s pupils develop skills for lifelong learning. Achievement and a ‘can do’ attitude are at the heart of our philosophy; we support this through nurturing pupils’ creativity, encouraging independent thinking and learning, and showing that mistakes can be a learning opportunity.
We recognise the fact that, as a parent, you are an essential partner in the educational process and we place great value on the support we receive from parents in so many different ways. In return, we will support your understanding of the education your child is receiving from us by regularly inviting you into school to discuss his or her progress and to keep you up to date on new ideas and initiatives.
Like your child, I am looking forward to the next year at St Mary’s and, also like your child, I am filled with a sense of excitement and anticipation at what the next few years will bring. I am confident that, by parents, staff and governors working together in partnership, the future holds nothing but the very best for each child.
If you would like a tour, please contact the office and arrange an appointment. I am always happy to show visitors the work of our successful school.
Thank you for visiting our school website, which provides a wealth of information about the school and our offer to pupils.
Mr David Miller
