Thursday 14th December: School is open today. Pedestrians and motorists must take extra care around school grounds as surfaces are likely to be slippery. At 8.40am today, all pupils will be coming into school through the main reception entrance and going straight to class.
If there has been heavy snowfall there is no point in phoning school before 8am to find out if we are open or not because a decision will not be made until then. Once a decision is made it will be posted on this home page at exactly 8am. Many thanks in advance for your patience.
We offer you a warm welcome to St. Mary’s Catholic Primary School.
I sincerely hope that you, your children and your family have a very happy time as part of our school family. If you already have a child here, then we are delighted to renew the links between us.
In the St. Mary’s School brochure you will find lots of information about the organisation, the day-to-day activities, the learning your child will be involved in and the part you play.
Home, School and Parish together form a valuable and important “partnership”. In a caring, Catholic atmosphere we encourage our children to develop and mature in the light of the Gospel values, with a Christian concern for others.
Our mission is to work to develop the full potential of each individual in an environment where the Gospel values of love, peace, truth and justice are lived out.
We hope that our partnership will assist our children to develop their potential to the highest levels of achievements.
There are regular communications between School and Home, as well as parents’ evenings and informal social fund-raising events. However, if you need to know anything more at all about St. Mary’s, please do not hesitate to ask. Your child’s Teacher, the Deputy Headteacher or I will be happy to make arrangements to see you to answer your questions or discuss your comments and suggestions. We are all striving to provide the best possible caring education for our children. The Governors, Pupils and Staff of St. Mary’s welcome you to this school family.
Mr J Murray
