A Message from the Executive Headteacher and Head of School

Welcome to our school website!

The idea of a website is to enable parents and visitors to find out information about our school, what is going on and things of interest that have already happened. It is a very good way to share information with parents and pupils and it can help cut back the cost of sending out letters and notes to parents.

There is a copy of the schools latest prospectus in the ‘Policies & Publications’ section of the site. Parents should read this even if they have had children in the school for many years, as it will refresh their memories about what we do at St Mary’s.

Any letters that are sent to parents will be uploaded to the ‘News’ section. Parents can read them as PDF files so they can not be lost or forgotten about. School policies and reports from Ofsted can be found on the ‘Policies and Publications’ section, as well as school policies and data about results and free school meals funding.

The leadership structure of St Mary’s is an Executive Headteacher and a Head of School.  The Head of School is Mrs V Minihane who is responsible for the day to day management and teaching and learning activities that take place at St Mary’s.  The Executive Headteacher has overall responsibility for the management of the school.

We hope you enjoy using our website!
