Headteacher’s Welcome


Welcome to St Mary’s Church of England Primary School

We are a popular school situated in Stoke Newington, Hackney and have been serving the community and providing high quality education for over 450 years. We have 1 of each class from Nursery to Year 6 and believe that being a smaller school creates the ethos that we are proud of: friendly, welcoming and caring.

We are a faith school and Christianity is at the heart of all that we do, however we invite families of other faiths and those with no faith to join our school community. Our school values of love, respect, courage, truth and hope are things that we can all identify with regardless of our faith or backgrounds.

Our vision is that every child in our school reaches their full potential and that they leave St Mary’s with skills for life. We hope that by embedding a love of learning, this will support them on their journey as they develop into young adults, positively contributing to society and being model citizens.

We are committed to working in partnership with families and the schools community, including the Parish of St Mary’s to make every child’s time with us a positive one. Through a joint commitment, we can grow and live out our mission statement ‘through God’s love we strive to be the best we can be.’

I hope that you find our website helpful. If you would like to find out more about St Mary’s Church please use this link. If you are interested in finding out more about St Mary’s Primary School, please contact the school’s office to organise a visit.

Kind regards
