Welcome to St Mary’s school! We are the foundation for everything that is to come in our wonderful school, and what a place to start!
All of our very hard work is play based and designed to help develop the skills required to thrive, succeed and enjoy our time in nursery, ensuring we are ready to move on to the rest of the school.
We access the outdoor area and whole school grounds on a daily basis to provide a broad and balanced experience.
I have worked at school for the last ten years. In that time I have had many, many different jobs! I am currently run the breakfast club, I lead the lunch club for nursery children and I am a nursery assistant, which I have been doing for three years. This is also my favourite and […]
I am married with three children and have lived in the area for 17 years. I have taught in Oxfordshire and Wiltshire and really enjoy being in the Early Years. I’ve been part of the St Mary’s Early Years team for too long to remember. I love being outside walking, cycling and swimming – you’ve […]
I have worked at St. Mary’s for ten years and have taught Reception for the last four. I love working in Year 2, as the children make me smile and laugh every day. I love being outside and run the Eco warriors and gardening club at school, helping the children be more aware of the […]
Happy Valentines Day to you all. We have been sharing all of the things we love in our lives as part of our reflections this week. Why not make sure you take time to think of all of the things and people you love. Happy Valentines Day.
Thank you to everyone who attended our nativity and carol concerts at St Mary’s Church this year. Once again, the children were fantastic with their singing and acting and really helped create a wonderful atmosphere. The video contains some (slightly blurry – low light and low cameraman skills to blame!) photos of all the classes […]
We had an amazing, if slightly boggy, time raising money for St John’t Hospice with our second annual Elf Run. Everyone, from Nursery to Year 6 got their elf hats on and set off around our course with great enthusiasm. Whilst some socks and shoes may have been temporarily lost to the well placed boggy […]
Thank you for your understanding whilst we prepared for improving the markings outside of school and on the playground. You will now see that our lay by has been properly signposted to show it primarily as a drop off zone with four parking bays (see photos). Please do not park in the drop off zone […]
We are so excited to tell everyone that we have new playground markings at school. We know how excited the children are with their new playground. We are going to have some very active learners using these in lessons! Hurrah!
Please bring a donation of £1 for Children in Need and come in MUFTI on Friday 15th Nov.
Each year we celebrate European Languages Day. Each class looks at a different country and explores the languages, culture and geography. We have had a super time! Many classes like to try and explore a new country, this year Belgium was the choice of Year 6.
Wow look at what Mia has been doing…
The Year 6 Service will start at 9:30am at St Mary’s Church concluding at around 10:30am. The Summer term will end at 1:00pm pm after lunch.
Some of our children from Year 5 have attended the School Vision Conference at Rydal Hall this week. We have taken part in a whole range of activities to help us think about the children’s involvement in our school vision. We were joined by many school from all over Cumbria. It was lovely to see […]
