"When my girls went back to school I was struggling with my mobility, mental health and grief and often I couldn’t get the girls to school and their attendance was dipping badly. So I came into school for a meeting and the outcome of that meeting was a local staff member would come and pick my girls up in the morning and take them in for me. This has helped me more than words can describe.  I’m so very, very grateful for all the help and support that the rest of St Mary’s staff have given all of my family."


"The relationship between school staff and families is very strong with a high level of participation from parents and carers."

UNICEF Gold 2023

Due to this strong trusting relationship, many parents volunteer within school, taking roles such as reading with pupils, accompanying trips, and raising money for the school and charities.
