Thank you for visiting St Mary's School website
St Mary's is a small Nursery and Primary School in the centre of the historical town of Ulverston, South Cumbria. We currently have 123 pupils on roll. We have an admissions number of 15 pupils and have been over subscribed for the last 3 years. We are well resourced and privileged to offer small class sizes.
We are a very welcoming school with an Open Door Policy so parents can come and discuss any needs or concerns as soon as possible. Our Staff are very dedicated and have excellent working relationships with parents. We are exceedingly proud of our school team. Our Ofsted Inspection in 2016 agreed with us - 'At the heart of the work of the school is an ethos of strong teamwork'.
Our 2015 RE Inspection Report (Section 48) acknowledged that - 'St Mary's is an outstanding Catholic school. It is very welcoming and has inclusion for all as a central goal and a shared vision'. We were graded outstanding in all areas.
The Pupils, Staff and Federation Governors are all very proud of our School and we strive to ensure that St Mary's School provides a happy, caring environment where everyone works hard and achieves their best. Our aim is to give our Pupils the skills to become life long learners so that they can become exemplary citizens of the future.
Here at St Mary's School we offer many exciting and creative learning opportunities, including Forest Schools. Our School curriculum is excellent because it is creative and imaginative. Our whole School planning incorporates every opportunity to include local community events and provide our pupils with a sense of belonging - 'Respect and tolerance run as a golden thread in every classroom' - Ofsted 2016.
We provide an extensive range of extra-curricular activities throughout the year including Basket Ball, Cricket, Football, Choir, Dance, Gardening/Running/Film Clubs, French and Spanish lessons.
