We are committed to raising educational achievement and we believe that our broad and balanced curriculum effectively prepares children for the next stage of their education and life in modern Britain. 

At St Mary's Fields Primary School the health and safety, safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children is of paramount importance.


St Mary's Fields Primary School Vision:

We aim to provide a safe and friendly environment where children are motivated and want to learn more and do more.

St Mary's Fields Vision:

At St-Mary's Fields Primary School we are committed to ensuring that each child reaches their potential and develops an enthusiasm for lifelong learning. Our vision is for the children to leave St Mary's as confident, independent, respectful and self-motivated young people equipped with the academic, social and emotional skills to take on their next challenge. During the children’s school they will take part in our ‘Route to Resilience’ work where children work on 19 character muscles.
