St Mary's Church of England Primary School and Nursery has a distinctive Christian ethos which is at the heart of this School and provides an inclusive, caring and supportive environment where children learn and flourish in a setting shaped by Christian values. The Admissions Policies of St Mary's seek a balance between those who come from a Christian background and those who come from other faith backgrounds or world views. We welcome applications from people of all backgrounds and faith traditions. We do, however, expect that everyone who comes to St Mary's will be fully supportive of the school's Christian foundation and ethos. This is in line with our aim to be a distinctive school, but also an inclusive school.
In the event that during the period specified for attendance at worship the church has been closed for public worship and has not provided alternative premises for that worship, the requirements of these admissions arrangements in relation to attendance will only apply to the period when the church or alternative premises have been available for public worship.

Applications for Reception and Nursery at the start of the academic year in September should be submitted before the closing dates (see below), however we may still have some available places after these deadlines have passed, so you can also contact the school directly. Applications received after the closing date may still be submitted at any time and places granted if they are available. You may apply for an In-Year Place (school places for any year group starting at any other time during the academic year) at any time. To visit the school Nursery Website click here.
