Everyone is Special

Headteacher’s Welcome

Mrs Robertson – Headteacher

I feel very proud and tremendously excited to be the new Head Teacher at St Mary’s C of E Aided Primary School. I am passionate about working in partnership with the children, staff, governors and yourselves as the parent community to continue to develop St Mary’s as an exciting, happy and successful school.

For me the needs of the children are always paramount in the life and decision making within a school. I strongly believe in providing the children with exciting, creative and meaningful learning experiences, which build their enthusiasm for learning and help them to grow and develop positively in a variety of ways. I think it is crucial to involve the children and their families as partners in their education. I am also keen on building a whole school community which thrives on mutual respect and values positive relationships.

I believe that we will have a positive and successful future working, growing and developing together as a whole school community so that St Mary’s provides an all-round educational experience in which everyone can flourish.
