Information for New Parents

Welcome to this page which will be dedicated to providing as much information as possible about our school for new parents. We hope it can also be used by other parents who want to know more about St. Mary's and what goes into making it the school we are so proud of. We welcome children and families from all backgrounds and religions and we pride ourselves on being a very close and supportive family. Should you have any further questions, please get in contact with us at any time at all, we will be very happy to answer any queries you may have.

If you would like to arrange a visit to see our school, I would be delighted to take you on a personal tour myself at a time that is convenient to you. We recommend that this is sometime during the day so you can see our children at work and play - this will allow you to get an accurate feeling for our school. During a visit, I also like to ask our children to tell you what makes our school special to them as our children are the heart of our school. We have shown 56 different parents around our school in the last 3 years and we are proud to say that 95% of those parents chose St. Mary's for their children. We have some spaces in certain year groups but even if we are full, we can often accommodate new children.  I will really look forward to meeting you in the future!

Many thanks,

Mr Mashiter (October 2023)
