Our Mission Statement
‘Developing the Whole Child’
|At St Mary’s Bolton-on-Swale we work to make our children feel safe, nurtured and to enjoy school. Children are encouraged to make positive contributions, show mutual respect, including a respect for a belief in God, and to strive to achieve their full potential – that in so doing they will be prepared for future life.|
Bolton-on-Swale St Mary's is " a vibrant learning environment in which the breadth of the curriculum shines through and pupils' individuality is recognised. Pupils behave extremely well." Ofsted Inspection December 2015
“The distinctiveness and effectiveness of Bolton-on-Swale as a Church of England School is outstanding.” SIAS Church Inspection 2012.
A message of welcome from the Head teacher
On behalf of the staff and governors I would like to welcome you to Bolton-on-Swale St Mary’s Church of England Primary School.
We hope that this website will give you a flavour of the rich and varied life of our village primary school. We are a Church School and Christian values underpin our ethos and are central to our life and community.
As a school, we are very excited about all that we offer to the children and families who become part of our community.
In December 2015 Ofsted rated our school as Good in all areas and the SIAS, Church School Inspection graded the school as Outstanding.
We hold the Quality Mark for PE and competitive sport. We achieved our International Eco School Award and our fourth Eco Schools Green Flag Award in 2015. We hold the NAACE ICT Quality Mark.
Most importantly our parents, carers and children tell us that we make a huge contribution to ‘Developing the whole Child’.
Bolton-on-Swale St Mary’s is a very popular school with a friendly, caring and supportive staff and an enthusiastic and able Governing Body. We work together to ensure that every child in our care is happy and safe and experiences every opportunity to learn and to succeed during their time with us.
We are committed to providing a safe, secure and stimulating learning environment in which children will be happy, enjoy learning, and develop positive relationships with others. Our vision is for academic excellence whilst promoting the moral, cultural, spiritual, social and physical development of our pupils. We will strive to make our school welcoming, open and friendly with a positive ethos where the views of the children and parents are valued. We are a fully inclusive school and strive to ensure equality of opportunity for all our pupils.
Please do come into school to ask any questions you may have; we are always very happy to show you around. We look forward to meeting you and your child soon and to working in partnership with you.
