Starting School


Welcome to our Starting School Page. A page designed to help the parents and children starting in our Reception Class to understand what will happen at the start of the new academic year. 


Firstly, we would like to wish you and your family well during these unprecedented and challenging times and hope you are managing to stay safe and happy.  We are delighted that you have chosen a place for your child at St Mary’s Catholic Primary School. We look forward to meeting you in the near future and welcoming you into our school community.  ‚Äč


We understand that starting school is a big milestone for both children and their families, one that should be cherished and very much looked forward to. Such a big change can sometimes bring new emotions. We want to assure you that we are here to give the best support to you and your child at every step of the way to ensure a calm, relaxed and welcoming learning environment.
