Our KS1 Parent Information Meeting is on Wednesday at 7.00pm.
Parents of Year 1 and 2 children are invited to come along and find out more about the curriculum. We hope you can come along.

Our Harvest Assembly will be on Thursday 28th September at 9.00am and we would love to invite grandparents to come and watch, then stay for a coffee afterwards. With St. Mary’s Church, we are supporting the Need Project and would be very grateful for any donations of tea, coffee, tinned food, cereals and biscuits or toiletries including soap, toothpaste, shower gel and deodorant on the day.

We are looking forward to our first SMSA event of the year!
Family Fun Friday is this week, from 3.20pm on the school playground.
The SMSA are raising vital funds towards new ICT equipment, so please come along and support us! There will be lots of stalls and activities for the whole family to enjoy. Donations for stalls and offers of help to set up will be gratefully received!
Children are welcome to come in non-uniform in return for a donation for one of the stalls.

Welcome to St Mary's 

If your child is to join us for the first time we welcome you as parents and look forward to a happy and successful association over the coming years.  If you already have a child here we are pleased to continue the links between us.

The staff, governors and I are committed to working together to provide the highest quality education for your children.  We aim to ensure all of the children enjoy school and strive for excellence within our broad and balanced curriculum.  Our Academy is welcoming and friendly and we are very proud of our Christian family ethos.  We look forward to working with you, as together we can give your child the very best possible start to their school life.
The information on this website will, I hope, give a flavour of our work, but I am always available to speak to parents about the aspects of our work and/or to give a personal tour of the academy.  If you would like to do this please feel free to give me a ring.
