Hello! My name is Mrs Legge and, as Head teacher of St Mary’s, I take great pleasure in welcoming you to our school.
Choosing your child’s school is one of the most important decisions that you, as parents, will make. Children spend many hours of their early life at school and you need to know that they are receiving the highest standard of care, both in terms of academic input and, equally, their social development. Every parent wants their child to achieve their best; every parent wants their child to be happy. We all know that a happy child is going to make good progress; your child’s happiness is very important to me and, should you decide that St Mary’s is the right place for your child, I will do all I can to promote that. I believe that primary education should be just that – first class!
At St Mary’s, your child will find a warm welcome, a fair but firm discipline and the opportunity for educational challenge in the Christian environment of a Catholic school. Our school has a special mission in seeking to promote the well-being and freedom of every person, made in the image and likeness of God. With each child in our care, we develop self-esteem, support social development, stimulate the inquiring mind and plan for academic success. We, as parents and teachers, have the responsibility to ensure that our children receive the best. I am inviting you to share that privilege with our staff, to place your child in our care and work with us in achieving that objective.
