Starting Reception in 2021?

Thank you for taking the time to look at our school. Selecting a school for your child is an important decision, and as parents, whichever school you choose you need to ensure their happiness. At St Mary's C of E School, we treat each child as an individual and provide appropriate support to meet their needs.


Our dedicated staff team are committed to inspiring every child to develop a love of learning that enables them to shine as lights in the world.


Due to the current restrictions, we are unable to host our usual open events and school tours. We have instead uploaded a presentation below for you to view, and hope this will give you a flavour of what to expect if your child came to St Mary's C of E School.

The normal point of admission is into Reception Class; children normally enter the Reception Class in September of the school year in which they turn five. Our admission number for children into Reception Class is currently 60.


The Reception Classes are housed in their own building on the main school site. The children in Reception have their own outdoor area which includes a bicycle track, mud kitchen, a woodwork bench, water areas, a construction area and an outdoor reading and writing station.  The children also have access to the main school where they can visit the library and have PE lessons in the Hall. The children are also able to access the school field for sports and the Forest School site.
