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.

What a fantastic morning of sport with our EYFS and Infant children. Thank you to everyone who came along to support and also help raise funds for Macmillan Care and the PTA.

The children have been helping take care of our hens and are doing a wonderful job. They even provided our three buff orpingtons (Joanne, Wendy and Sarah) with hanging baskets for their new home. Thanks once again to Miss Robinson helping build and look after the hens with our children.
