Mrs Naomi Clarke

}I am very proud to be able to welcome you to our wonderful school, where we have 'faith in everyone to shine brightly’. Our website should provide you with all the information you need, but we always welcome visits to the school if you need further information. 

As you enter our school, you will find us learning together in faith, love and friendship; we pride ourselves on our strong family atmosphere. At St Mary’s, a highly motivated and dedicated team ensure that all children aspire to achieve their full potential, both academically and socially.

Every child is valued for their uniqueness and our strong pastoral support enables them to develop the self-esteem and skills they will need to be successful in life; playing, learning and working together now and in the future. The support, challenge and determination to achieve exceptional outcomes for all within our school community is fostered by everyone.

Adults, children and families are all supported to achieve and thrive. We aim to nurture children who are inclusive, tolerant and, most importantly, enthusiastic about life itself; they are set superb examples of this by the caring members of our school community.

The children are enabled to successfully grow into citizens of the future through our diverse and creative curriculum, where learning is rooted in experience. At St Mary's children learn to be safe, be ready and be respectful, as we believe this provides them with the perfect start to a life-long journey of discovery and fulfilment.~

Mrs Naomi Clarke,

Headteacher

Key Information for Parents & Carers
 

Please ensure you and your family are familiar with the following rules & routines:.

  1. We have a one-way system on our school site to help keep the site secure. Please remember you should not come back under the bridge onto the main playground at pick up time once you have gone round to the back of the building.
  1. The children can arrive from 8.40am: lessons start at 8.50am. (The gates will be locked at 8.55 am to allow time for all parents and carers to vacate the site. Any children arriving after 8:55am will be marked as late.)
     
  2. There is absolutely NO vehicular access onto the school site, unless by prior arrangement. There should be absolutely NO parking in Bradon Forest at all.
     
  3. Please ensure children have the correct school uniform and that all footwear is black and suitable for running around and being active every day.

  4. At end of the day, the gates are opened at 3.00pm. Children are collected on the playground. Note: we will not let your child go until you are there.
  1. Please limit conversations with staff at drop-off and collection: whilst this is often important communication, such ‘quick words’ soon result in staff members having dozens of face-to-face interactions each week, that could have been communicated in a different way: if you need to get a message to a teacher, please contact the admin team via email (admin@st-marys-purton.wilts.sch.uk) or phone (01793 770239), who will ensure your message or request is passed on. Members of staff can then contact you on the phone or email as appropriate, as soon as they are able.
  1. Hot school dinners are bookable through Parent Pay. Please note, meals must be booked for all children, including those who have income-related free school meals or universal infant school meals.

Ofsted Inspection 2017

Challenge Partner Quality Assurance Review 2022

Our most recent external Quality Assurance Review was undertaken by an experienced Lead Reviewer and their team of senior leaders over three days in March, 2022, focusing on the below key areas. The review involved all senior leaders and class teachers. 

Note: The Quality Assurance Review estimates are not equivalent to Ofsted grades. The QA Review uses a different framework to Ofsted and the review is developmental not judgmental.

  • Area 1 - Leadership at all levels (Decision: Leading)
  • Area 2 - Quality of provision and outcomes, including outcomes for disadvantaged pupils and pupils with additional needs (Decision: Effective)
     
  • Area of Excellence: The promotion of high quality leadership by subject coordinators and those responsible for specific groups of pupils. (Decision: Accredited)


If you would like to read more, please visit our Inspections and Reviews page

The following quotations provide a summary overview of the 2022 Quality Assurance Review: 

“The headteacher is held in high regard by staff, pupils, parents and governors. She provides wise counsel and plays a central role in sustaining the warm and purposeful atmosphere across the school."

"Senior leaders have a wide range of experience and expertise and have established a strong learning culture where openness and risk-taking are encouraged and where all feel valued."

"The motto, ‘Faith in Everyone to Shine Brightly’ is understood by all members of the school community. The ambition for all pupils to be ‘safe, ready, respectful’ is understood by pupils and provides them with a shared language with which to reflect on their own personal development."

"Governors are fully involved with monitoring the provision and pupils’ achievement. Each governor is linked with a middle leader. They gain insights into strengths and areas for development through overviews of outcomes and regular visits. This enables them to be proactive in contributing to whole school improvement plans and evaluating their success.”

"Pupils enjoy a rich and well-structured curriculum. Opportunities to promote pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development are now explicit in curriculum plans, as recommended during the last consultation visit." 

 

"Excellent relationships among teachers, support staff and pupils underpin the relaxed and purposeful atmosphere during lessons. Pupils’ behaviour is typically excellent."

 

"In the most successful lessons, teachers fully capitalise on pupils’ positive attitudes to fully engage and motivate them."

 

"There is a strong ethos of inclusion throughout the school. Disadvantaged pupils and those with additional needs are supported in lessons seamlessly. Both groups benefit from extremely well-organised support."

 

"Staff have capitalised on the close relationships established with parents during lockdowns and continue to develop strong home/school partnerships."

Disadvantaged Learners

We believe that every child should have equal opportunity and access to an excellent education. We know that disadvantaged learners can require greater support in order to achieve results that are in line with other children and young people. St Mary's follows the Disadvantaged Learner Charter. Read more on our Pupil Premium page.

 __________________________________________________________________

Social, Emotional & Mental Health (SEMH)

We pride ourselves that every member of the St Mary's team considers each child's broader well-being as being of paramount importance. Therefore, we create opportunities and take the time to get to know the children in our care well and, when necessary, aim to support them and their families in addressing any issues in their emotional well-being and mental health. You can find out more here.

What to do if your child has COVID 19 symptoms

Your child should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people if they have symptoms of COVID-19 and they either:

  • have a high temperature
  • do not feel well enough to go to school, college or childcare, or do their normal activities

They can go back to school, college or childcare when they feel better or do not have a high temperature.

If your child has mild symptoms such as a runny nose, sore throat or mild cough, and they feel well enough, they can go to school, college or childcare.

Encourage your child to cover their mouth and nose with a tissue when they cough or sneeze, and to wash their hands after using or throwing away tissues.

Most children who are unwell will recover in a few days with rest and plenty of fluids.
