A big welcome to our Reception children and parents/carers 2024!

We are delighted that you have chosen St Mary’s Catholic Primary Academy for your child and we look forward to welcoming you and your family to our school community.

All parents of our new Reception children have received an email with details of their class teachers for September and our induction sessions for the summer term. All our new Reception children will start in September on Tuesday 3rd.

All parents/carers should have received a link to register for Arbor. Please note we are an ‘eco-school’ and do not use paper admission forms, all information is collected through Arbor. Please ensure you have registered and submitted all the information requested for your child. This is the system we use to securely store all information regarding your child; medical and dietary requirements, contact details, permission to collect, consents etc.

If you need any assistance registering for Arbor please contact the school office or follow the link below:
