St. Mary's C of E Primary School

Achievement, Creativity, Equality




 Our school is part of the Hope, Westbury, Worthen Trinity, a federation of Church of England schools. As a Voluntary Aided school we enjoy working closely with the church and the wider local community.

You may already know that the governors of the Hope, Westbury and Worthen Federation of CofE Primary Schools decided to teach all the school aged children on the Worthen site from September 2016. 

This decision was made to secure the best possible outcomes for pupils academically and socially and provide them with the best opportunities for accessing high quality teaching and learning.  In addition, there are more opportunities for children to access a variety of extra-curricular activities, including sport.

All three schools have experienced falling rolls in recent years and it has been increasingly difficult for governors to recruit and retain headteachers and teachers. 

Children were taught in whole key stage classes in all three schools; now they are taught in classes spanning no more than two year groups.

The headteacher does not have a class teaching responsibility, allowing her to focus more sharply on raising standards and the quality of teaching and learning.

The nursery enjoys our wonderful facilities.  We have an outdoor area with play equipment, an allotment, orchard and wildlife area.  Our playground has picnic benches and a quiet area, as well as netball courts, multi play activities and plenty of space.  We also boast a large field, which is marked with a football pitch in the winter and running track The nursery has an active panel which the children use daily.

The nursery is well furnished, and we have a large hall, small teaching room, nurture area. 

We would like to extend a warm welcome to any prospective parents.
