Welcome to St Mary’s

St Mary’s C.E. Primary School is a thriving and successful primary school situated in Platt Bridge, Wigan. Our annual intake of 45 children comes from the surrounding areas of Platt Bridge, Spring View, Lower Ince, Abram and Hindley. We moved into our new school building in April 2015 though the school has existed for over 100 years.

St Mary’s is a very friendly school with a family ethos. We have an open door policy and are an extremely approachable team. Our talented staff are deeply committed to providing a high quality education and support system for our community.

Excellent teachers and teaching assistants provide an interesting and exciting yet challenging curriculum in a safe, warm secure and caring environment.

Our Pastoral Team support this by providing a wide range of nurture and therapeutic sessions for our children and craft sessions, parenting, attendance and crisis support for our parents.

Alongside our curriculum we provide a range of after school clubs, sports tournaments, visits and enrichment opportunities. We work with the Enabling Enterprise and Credit Unify teams to deliver enterprise topics twice a year and our team of Money Mentors work with other classes to improve important life skills and prepare our children for their future lives.

As a church school, we have strong relationships with St Nathaniel’s and St Mary’s churches nearby. Our worship is values driven and helps our children to see the relevance of the bible and teachings of Jesus in their daily, modern lives. We are very lucky to be supported by three local vicars who deliver worship regularly and provide confirmation classes to our Year 6 pupils. We also offer Activity Church sessions throughout the year for both children and their parents.

Our Mission Statement:

We want our children to develop the skills of an effective lifelong learner, build successful relationships, have clear Christian values and principles and live by them.

We want our children to be happy.

We welcome visitors to the school at any time.
