St Mary’s is a voluntary aided Roman Catholic Primary School, which provides a Christian education in the Catholic tradition. As a school we aim to provide a happy, secure and essentially Catholic environment for children, where they can participate readily in the process of learning and encounter as broad a curriculum as possible. Each child will be helped to realise his/her maximum potential as we place great emphasis on the whole development of each individual child. We want them all to begin to use their own initiative so that they learn to work by themselves. We will at the same time give them opportunities to develop the skills they need to communicate with others and understand more of the world in which they live.

The annual AGM for the PTA will take place on Thursday, November 16th at 7pm in the School.
This meeting is open to all parents who would like to become involved with the PTA in any capacity. It is only through the willingness of volunteers that our fundraising events are successful, so allowing us to purchase sports equipment, books, playground equipment and provide support for many other projects within the school.
During this meeting the executive positions of Chair, Secretary and Treasurer will need to be filled in order for the PTA to continue.
We would also like to appoint the non-executive position of Vice-Chair for the coming year.
If you would like to nominate a person or be considered for one of these positions please come along.
However, if you just fancy coming along to see what goes on within the PTA, find out who we are and what we talk about, you will be very welcome!
