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 JP Catering Services, 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


To treat all children (and adults) "as unique children of God, wonderfully made, dearly loved and precious" PSALM 139. To also recognise that every child matters (2004 Education Act) 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.

Our Mission

‚ÄúLiving, Loving & Learning Together‚ÄĚ

Underpinned by spirituality, founded in Christian virtues of faith, hope and love. We believe that good learning creates opportunity and enriches lives.

Living Together:

We provide a safe, secure and stimulating environment to enable each individual to become a confident, giving and responsible member of the community.

Loving Together:

We encourage forgiveness, trust and acceptance of every person. We celebrate the diversity of our school and community and encourage respect for god, self, others, the environment and the wider world.

Learning Together

We share high expectations, encourage aspiration and promote effective communication and collaboration. We nurture children to become creative and independent learners.

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.
