St Mary’s Primary School is an Outstanding, exciting Church of England School which has children at the heart of our focus. Through exceptional relationships with children, a bespoke, knowledge rich, curriculum and a range of extra curricular activities we offer a dynamic education to all.
Our bespoke curriculum allows for progression in knowledge and skills across all the curriculum. Through our curriculum drivers, Reading and Oracy, we provide children with every opportunity to succeed in education and life.
Reading is at the heart of our curriculum. Opportunities for all children to read well and widely permeates our curriculum. Carefully curated book lists for each year group, clear teaching of reading skills and the chance for all to be read to underpin our whole curriculum. We firmly believe reading broadens children’s horizons, develops their imagination and provides them with a rich vocabulary. We love reading at St Mary’s!
Our dedicated team of staff provide a friendly, nurturing learning environment where pupils feel safe, valued and secure. 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.
All children have the opportunity to represent school in a range of different events throughout their time at St Mary’s.
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.
