A message of welcome from the Headteacher
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 November 2019 Ofsted rated our school as Good in all areas and in November 2016 our SIAMS, Church School Inspection graded the school as Outstanding in all areas.
We hold the Gold School Games Quality Mark for PE and competitive sport. We achieved our International Eco School Award and our fifth Eco Schools Green Flag Award in 2018.
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. Smooth transition as children start school and preparation for secondary school and the next stage on a child’s journey in education are very important to 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 work 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.
