Headteacher's Welcome

StMMs Mural_o7

On behalf of the children, staff and governors, I offer you a warm welcome to St Mary Magdalen’s Catholic Primary School. I hope you find our website clear and informative as it is designed to give you a flavour of the vibrant life at our school, the work of our pupils and the quality of education we deliver!

As a Catholic school, we provide all of our children with the opportunity to grow as young people and encourage and support them in developing a closer relationship with God. Our school motto ‘Together in God’s love we stand; learning and friendship hand in hand’ was written by our school community and inspiration for this was drawn from our school mission statement, where we believe that ‘each person is a unique creation of God and we therefore respect and care for their individual needs.’


St. Mary Magdalen’s School is a Catholic Primary School and Nursery.  Our Mission Statement is at the heart of our core values and ethos.  We are an inclusive school guided by Gospel Values in ensuring that all pupils have equal access and opportunities for learning.  Our vision is a school where every child achieves through a relentless focus on high quality teaching and learning.  Ensuring all children make good or better progress in reading, writing and numeracy is one of our core purposes.  All staff will consistently use the most effective methods for teaching these basic skills. 

Underpinning this will be:

  • outstanding day-to-day assessment and marking of children’s work
  • first rate systems for tracking, identifying and celebrating children’s progress
  • an exciting, relevant and inspiring curriculum
  • excellent support for the needs of each child

Classrooms will be vibrant, supportive and welcoming.  They will be full of children motivated by positive, well-paced and purposeful lessons.  These lessons will be delivered by staff that are passionate about the children’s success.  Every parent / carer will be able to feel proud of their child’s achievements and will know exactly what these are.  Clear guidance will be given about the best ways to support children with learning out of school.  Every child will have the best possible start.  We ensure that children have a strong pupil voice in every aspect of school life.

We work in partnership with parents and carers and very much value the support and contribution they make to our school life. Our parents play a crucial role in maintaining the relationship between parish, home and school.

Our curriculum has been carefully designed to develop our five key skills;

  • Creative thinking
  • Communication
  • Questioning
  • Perseverance
  • Teamwork

We believe in ensuring that the children receive a well-rounded and broad curriculum where individual talents can be spotted and nurtured  to ensure that all children experience success, develop confidence and are challenged to achieve their very best. We aim to help our children become lifelong learners and to foster a passion for learning and curiosity that will enable them to develop high aspirations and a lifetime of memories and achievements.

If you require any further information or you would like your child to join our school, please make an appointment to come and see our school in action. I look forward to meeting you.

Mrs Andie Wilson
