It’s a vibrant, hands-on, busy and fun place to learn and thrive!
We are a Church of England Infant School set in the centre of Witney. Adjacent to St. Mary’s Church and overlooking the green, we are proud of our heritage whilst always building towards the future.
At St. Mary’s, the Christian value of love is at the heart of all we do. We seek to grow our children in a nurturing and secure environment and work closely together with our parents, the Church, governors and the community to achieve this. Our specialist and dedicated team of staff are passionate about Early Years Education and our facilities are designed specifically to meet the needs of children aged 4-7 years, including our purpose built Reception suite.
We pride ourselves that the children at St. Mary’s are happy, challenged and excited about each day, every day. Whether it be investigating an alien crash landing, May Day dancing or trying to find the answer to the question ‘why does popping candy go pop?’ our children are encouraged to achieve their potential, develop their talents and celebrate their uniqueness.
I feel extremely privileged to be Headteacher of St. Mary’s and invite you to come and visit our school to see it in action. You’ll be sure of a warm welcome.
Wednesday was the perfect day for our Sports Day and the children participated in every event with enthusiasm and full of team spirit. The Sporty Strawberries were triumphant as the overall winners. A very big thank you to Miss Atkinson for organising such a superb morning with some different challenges for the children to tackle.
We were also very lucky to have several Year 10 Sports Leaders from The Henry Box School who not only helped us out on the day but also on our rehearsal morning, so a huge thank you to them as well. We hope they will be able and willing to come back again next year!
The Year 2s went on an action packed trip to Warwick Castle to conclude their learning for the topic, 'Towers, Tunnels and Turrets'. The weather was glorious which meant that we could see for miles once we reached the top of the tower.
There is a vibrant, interesting and engaging curriculum. This is a strength of the school and reflects the determination that pupils will encounter first-hand experiences while maintaining a strong focus on their basic skills.
