I am sure you will agree we have a real team at Maryvale who work hard to support the children in the time they spend here in school.
I would like to say thank you to them all, every member of the school community has their own unique role but together form the basis for our happy school.
I wish the staff a happy and restful holiday and thank them once again for their commitment to the children of Maryvale.
We all wish Year 6 pupils all the very best for their futures.
God has blessed every one of the children with so many gifts and talents that I hope they will continue to develop and use as they start their next step on their journey through life.
Goodbye and Good luck.
Welcome to Maryvale Catholic Primary School
I am delighted to say that all the children have come back to school looking very smart and ready to learn. I am looking forward to seeing the school continue to move forward this academic year. Please make sure that the children bring in their PE kits and that all items of clothes are labelled.
This is my third year at Maryvale, and during my time here, I have seen many changes that we, as the Maryvale community should be really proud of:
- The school was rated 'Good' by Ofsted for the very first time.
- The school was graded 'Outstanding' in the RE Inspection.
- Progress levels have been raised significantly.
- Our early year's children have achieved to expected standards.
- Reading books for home and guided reading have been purchased.
- The infant block was totally re-decorated and a library has been built.
- The boiler has been replaced.
- The school has had a new roof.
- The class rooms have all had new furiture and interactive boards.
- The ICT suite has been improved.
- Plus many more changes.
