Welcome to St Mary's R C Primary School
I would like to welcome you to St Mary’s Catholic Primary School in Richmond, North Yorkshire. We are a vibrant learning community in the heart of a North Yorkshire Dales market town, where our children live, learn and grow in God’s love.
The family atmosphere of this small Catholic primary school offers opportunities for all children to make good progress in their learning and achieve excellent standards in their education.
The most recent OFSTED in January 2013 judged the school to be good stating “that the pupils make increasingly good progress as a result of good teaching.” Ofsted went on to say that “pupils are happy in school and enjoy their learning. They respect one another (and) work and play well together.”
The Diocese of Middlesbrough Section 48 Inspection (2013) reported that, “St Mary’s is a particularly welcoming school whose mission statement, ‘Jesus is at the heart of our school,’ is lived out fully. The children are delightful. They are proud of their school and appreciate the importance of working together as a team.”
I hope you will find your visit to the website both stimulating and exciting. During your visit to our website, you will be able to view some of the different activities undertaken by our pupils and get a flavour of our rich and stimulating curriculum.
Miss J Collins
