Welcome to St Mary’s


On behalf of the staff and governors I welcome you and your child to St Mary’s Catholic Primary School. Our school has been at the heart of the Catholic communities of St Edmund’s, St Mark’s and Our Lady of the Rosary for over 50 years; the gospel values of tolerance and respect are enshrined in our mission statement and permeate all aspects of school life.

Our school’s motto is ‘Onwards and Upwards’ which describes the commitment of the whole school community to providing a high standard of education in a supportive and stimulating environment. Our ambition for our children is that they will flourish during their primary years becoming confident and well-rounded individuals, ready for the next stage in their education. We nurture a close working relationship with our families and do all that we can to ensure that the time our families spend as part of our community is happy and fruitful.

Our denominational inspection took place in 2019 and St Mary’s was judged to be outstanding in all areas and said that, ‘The school’s Catholic life supports pupils academically and spiritually and fosters their sense of vocation within the school community and beyond.’ Our most recent Ofsted inspection report highlights the school’s ‘welcoming, caring and very harmonious atmosphere, where all feel valued’.


This prospectus is intended to give you information about our school and is correct at the time of publication. If you would like to visit St Mary’s or have questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
