About The School

St Mary's C of E Primary School is a small village school divided into three classrooms. Small classes ensure that our excellent teaching team can provide support or challenges to individual pupils as required. We also have an imaginative approach to staffing with specialist subject teachers teaching across the classes.

All pupils benefit from a range of amenities including a playground, extensive school field, wildlife garden and local woodland where we go for Forest School.

Hot lunches, provided by the Iron Rice Bowl, are available every day and parents may order from a weekly menu or children can be provided with a healthy packed lunch. Children have easy access to drinking water throughout the day and at morning break, to encourage healthy eating, fresh fruit is available to all pupils.

In January 2013 the Department of Education granted St Mary's C of E Primary School Free School status, which means we are free of Local Authority control.

Educational Vision

Vision Statement
Recognising that every child matters and is different, our vision is to guide and nurture each individual towards his/her best achievable level of attainment, in all aspects of learning and personal development: academic, physical, and spiritual by offering an exciting and inspirational curriculum in a caring, family-style environment, guided by the ethos of the Christian faith.

Mission Statement
The Mission Statement for St Mary's C of E Primary School is 
‚ÄėAchieving Excellence‚Äô.

Although we are a school with a Church of England designation, teaching within the principles of the Christian Church, there is no selection on grounds of faith.  All children of any faith or of no particular faith are welcome.
