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 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.

A Challenge Partners Quality Assurance Review was undertaken by experienced, external reviewer over two days in April, 2021. You can read read the full review here.

The following quotations provide a summary overview of the 2021 Quality Assurance Review: 


“St Mary’s places great emphasis on having ‘faith in everyone to shine brightly’. Christian values, carefully intertwined with British values, underpin the school’s ethos into which all pupils and their families are welcomed.”

“The highly effective inclusive practice values the uniqueness of every child and aims to develop the self-esteem and skills they need to be successful in life.”
 

“All staff are provided with a wealth of professional development which enables them to carry out their roles with knowledge and skill. Class teachers… demonstrated clearly their immense enthusiasm, drive and commitment to achieving the very best for the pupils in their classes, as well as for the subjects they lead.”
 

“A carefully crafted and detailed curriculum for foundation subjects and science has been created collaboratively. This appropriately begins with a creative Foundation Stage curriculum led by skilled and experienced Early Years staff. It has the school’s values, with a Christian perspective and British values at its heart. Worship themes and topics from the personal, social and health education (PSHE) scheme are carefully interwoven, alongside ‘big questions’ which engage pupils in deep thinking.”

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.
