Welcome to St Martin & St Mary Church of England Primary School.
On behalf of all children, staff and Governors I would like to warmly welcome you to St Martin and St Mary Church of England Primary School.
Our school is located between the busy villages of Windermere and Bowness, in a building which is spacious and well maintained. There are ample playing fields, a swimming pool and hard play areas within a pleasing landscaped setting.
We value highly the links between school and home and the great contribution parents make to their child's education. Only with excellent relationships between school and home can we work together towards higher attainment and standards in the education of your child.
We are a friendly, welcoming school with a dedicated staff and governing body committed to ensuring that every pupil has the opportunity to achieve their full potential. We want every child to enjoy school and have a sense of belonging in a safe and secure environment. We aim to work hard to continually improve to make our school one to be truly proud of.
Our teaching is stimulating and creative and encourages our children to continue their education outside of school and become lifelong learners. We want to ignite an interest in the world around them and for that interest to lead to fulfilling and imaginative lives. Learning should be fun!
Whilst academic achievements are an important part of life at our school, all our children also have the opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of sporting and musical opportunities, as well are regular trips and residential visits. Our pastoral care is exceptional, ensuring all children are kept safe and are supported both inside and outside school.
I am also very proud of our exceptional, experienced and dedicated staff, who ensure that all our children are well supported to achieve their true potential and work had with families to overcome any barriers to learning.
