"I will never forget the support that I received from St Mary’s during the pandemic, everything from the food parcels, to craft packages, to a phone call to offer help / advice & support. I cannot praise everyone enough. Honestly the pandemic has made me feel like St Mary’s is like one big family. I don’t have any family in Manchester apart from my sister. Seeing how everyone pulled together and helped others even with their own family’s to think about too. Was just such a nice feeling that I wasn’t alone ❤" Parent 


"Through the pandemic St Mary's have been there for us helping throughout the duration of lockdown. They helped with providing children devices,  getting them the education they needed and fun activities. The teachers called to check up on children asking if they were ok. It meant a lot." Parent 


Have a look at what's on at Moss Side Children's Centre, which is located in the bungalow in St Mary's car park...

"I’ve never had as good as a relationship with any of my children’s schools as I have with St Mary’s."  Parent

Learning Support for Parents


"I will certainly miss them after my child has moved onto high school, as a member of this community I remain committed to offering my support as and when the school may need it.  Thank you, St Mary’s!" Parent 


"As a parent of a Year 6 pupil who has been at St Mary’s since nursery, I am proud to express my experience of support and encouragement from St Mary’s. St Mary’s is in the heart of the Moss Side community and it has always been relentlessly benevolent not only to parents of children in the school but also to alumni students. For example, a past pupil now awarded BEM , was a St Mary’s student and after completing his primary education at St Mary’s, was welcomed back and had the opportunity to engage in what the school had to offer and become a leader in education . With the support of St Mary’s he was able to go on to university and continue positive and enriching work within the community. St Mary’s is a hands-on school that strives to better their students and their families. I feel a great sense of appreciation for all that St Mary’s has done and continues to do. As a parent I feel confident in the knowledge that St Mary’s has all of their students best interests in mind, and will do everything in their capacity to ensure all acquire success, no matter what that may look like.  Parent

"I really couldn’t ask for a better school for my girls. Everyone is so helpful and kind, especially the Pastoral Lead, who has helped us tremendously throughout lockdown. Whether she was dropping a food parcel, Easter eggs, little gifts for the kids or just a phone call to make sure we didn’t need anything or to make sure we were all doing ok." Parent

"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." Parent
