Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome to St Mary’s Church of England Primary School


A warm welcome to St Mary’s! We are a Church of England Primary School in the heart of Stoke Newington and go back 450 years. Our School Family is made up of wonderful children, dedicated staff, enthusiastic parents and supportive governors.

Our vision is to ‘feed the mind, body and spirit so we can be the best we can be.’  We want all children to realise their potential, feel a sense of belonging, enjoy learning and build community.  Our aim is to enable our children to be successful lifelong learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens who are able to make a positive contribution to society. We achieve this by providing a broad, rich and exciting curriculum, which is both inclusive and challenging in order to get the best from every child.

We hope that you will find our website informative and helpful. Whether you are a prospective parent/carers; somebody who might be interested in working at our school; or are already part of our school community, we hope that there is something here for you.

We are confident that you will see that St Mary’s is a vibrant, happy and fun place to be. We are proud of our children, our staff and the provision we offer.

We hope that you come to visit us soon.
