Views from our families

‘Education and the family are the cornerstone of a child’s life. St. Mary’s CVA successfully supplements home life by creating a caring family environment whilst educating children to the highest standard. For a school to flourish and also care for its pupils nothing is more important than leadership starting with the head teacher, supported by a dedicated teaching  staff and all who play their part in school life. St. Mary’s CVA is blessed to have such a focused teaching team. A happy child is usually a successful child. You only need to walk by the school gate and witness the laughter during playtime to know St. Mary’s children are happy.’

‘Thank you for all your hard work and everything you do for our children and families.’

‘The well rounded education is inclusive covering the essential 3 R’s, knowledge of many faiths and topics of general interest to instruct pupils as they start out on a life’s journey. As grandparents it is a comfort to know your grandchild is happy with a thirst for knowledge which is a reflection on both home and school life.’

‘What a wonderful school we have and we’re extremely grateful for all your hard work!!’

‘As a parent I massively appreciate the huge amount of outstanding work being done to teach my child in such difficult circumstances, all the staff should be very proud of the standard of schooling being delivered to the children.’
