ST MARY’S PRIMARY SCHOOL
St Mary’s Primary school is a small village primary school with extremely close links to St Mary’s church. The school is located beside the church and the school uses the church every week for assemblies and celebrations. Rev Julie is a governor of St Mary’s school and is closely involved with ensuring the childrens' spiritual learning. The school has nurtured a christian ethos of compassion, understanding and support and consequently the childrens' behaviour has been rated outstanding.
St Mary’s is extremely proud to report excellent levels of achievement across the school for 2014-2015. These results confirm a robust upward trend in pupil outcomes over the last 4 years. The dramatic increase from 2014 to 2015 reflects the school’s focus on ensuring consistently good teaching across the school and a sharper, more forensic approach to examining pupil in-year data and progress. The school has been working closely with external advisors to regularly review data and working practices and the impact of this can be clearly seen in the school’s performance which is consistently above national and county average.
St Mary’s has a small number of spaces available in each year group. If you would like to visit the school, or would like some more information please contact our school office at email@example.com or phone us on 01892 770221.
