Welcome to
St Mary the Virgin
CE Primary School

Our vision: “Direct my footsteps according to your word,” Psalm 119:133, is kept alive through the imagery of footprints throughout the school as we strive to live out our Christian values through God’s word. “Everything is possible, just believe!” Mark 9:23 & Matthew 19:26 sums up the essence of our school which is a place where we value every child as an individual and develop children academically, socially, emotionally and spiritually within a happy and nurturing environment. Together we give our children a place to grow their hopes and dreams for the future.
