“Outstanding teaching enables pupils to make outstanding progress in reading, writing and mathematics. Pupils use these skills exceptionally well in other subjects” and “Pupils are exceptionally keen to learn. Their behaviour in lessons is excellent. Pupils say that they feel very safe in school” and “Teaching is outstanding because staff make very close checks on pupils’ learning and match the work very precisely to the needs of every pupil.”
At St. Mary’s we pride ourselves on delivering outstanding provision for all our children through personalised learning. We believe the grounding pupils receive at our school provides a firm foundation for a life long love of learning.
Our dedicated team of staff provide a friendly, nurturing learning environment where pupils feel safe, valued and secure. We work alongside parents, governors and the wider community to provide a creative, balanced and inspiring curriculum and we always strive to make learning fun and engaging. We recognise the importance of and value the contributions parents make to their child’s education. We believe children achieve best where there is a strong, positive relationship between home and school. Our open door policy ensures that parents feel welcome and involved in their child’s learning and successes.
We ensure all children are supported to reach their full potential and are challenged in all aspects of the curriculum. We also provide a range of extra curricular activities to enrich the curriculum, from music, to gardening, to numerous sporting events. Throughout their educational journey at St. Mary’s, we hope our children create memories that will stay with them forever.
As a Church of England Primary School we have close links with The Diocese of Leeds and share their educational priorities:
LOVING – To respect and encourage each individual as a person wonderfully created in the image of God and deeply loved by God.
LIVING – To offer and example of living the Gospel in our learning community, inspired by God’s love for us and our love for one another.
LEARNING – To serve our whole community by offering the highest quality learning experience to our pupils, promoting wisdom, knowledge and skills.
