Blessed by God so that we may help others

Welcome to St Mary's Catholic Primary School

Welcome to St. Mary’s Catholic Primary School.  St Mary’s is a small, friendly school, committed to the welfare and safeguarding of its pupils.   To read our safeguarding policy, or to find out more information please view our School Safeguarding Information.

We were extremely proud to have received a letter from the Department for Education’s Regional Commissioner, who congratulated St Mary’s on being one of the region’s highest performing schools – Devon’s 5th highest performing primary school in 2016.

We encourage all pupils to be hard-working, polite, cheerful and ready to help others.  Our curriculum is designed to be creative, challenging and inspiring, enabling our pupils to become independent and resilient learners.  All of our staff work in close partnership with parents and governors, to create a close and caring community.

Take a look at the film our children made about St Mary’s School:

Across our website you will find out about life at St Mary’s.  I hope you will enjoy visiting our website and that you will find the information you need, but please contact the school if you have any further questions, or to make an appointment to visit the school and meet the staff and children – we look forward to welcoming you.

“The curriculum excites and engages pupils. It underpins the good outcomes that they achieve. There is a strong focus on academic, artistic, musical and physical activities.”

“Pupils behave well in lessons and around the school. Pupils are confident; they work well together and are supportive of each other.”

“Parents are universally supportive of the school and are keen to praise the work of leaders.”
