Welcome to St Mary’s Church of England Primary School.
We are a school located in the heart of Hornsey and one that fully represents the rich and diverse community that we are proud to be a central part of. Families are warmly welcomed into our school and our school is one that is fully inclusive at every level, irrespective of children’s individual needs. We have excellent transition procedures and children once they start at our school, quickly settle into the life of St Mary’s. We are highly valued within the community and the vast majority of our children remain with us for the duration of their primary education.
There is a clear vision for our school, which is rooted in Christian tradition. It is focused on an ambition of achieving excellence in all that we do, particularly in terms of ever-improving the quality of education, actively promoting respect and care for all, and being committed to supporting our children’s social and emotional development. The curriculum that we offer supports our work in this area. It is rooted in balanced representation, variety and learning experiences that are relevant to our children and their lives. Fundamentally, we are focused on improving and developing the life chances of all of our children. This vision, common to all religions, faiths and none, has been successfully maintained throughout the period of the pandemic.
We maintain strong relationships with parents and carers and communication between home and school is excellent – it is fair to say that they think highly of our school. Children also talk positively about St Mary’s, believing that the teaching is good, that school staff do all they can to help them with their learning and development, and that St Mary’s is a happy and safe place for them to be.
All of my staff and I also love everything about St Mary’s and feel privileged to work here. We are proud that our children consistently act with integrity, cooperate well with others and increasingly, develop into becoming responsible and respectful young citizens who flourish in wider society.
