Our School Vision: Knowing we are loved, we learn and grow to be the best that we can be.
Our School Values: At Blandford St Mary CE Primary School our school values are: Love, Hope, Respect, Perseverance and Responsibility.
Welcome to Blandford St Mary Church of England Primary School. I feel immensely proud to be the Headteacher of this wonderful one-form entry school where children truly are at the heart of everything we do.
We offer excellent standards of care, guidance and support and a high-quality learning environment to support all learners equally. We achieve above national expectations at the end of each key stage through the delivery of rigorous learning. The school upholds an ethos of high expectations which provides children with challenging opportunities where children acquire skills, knowledge and confidence that can be applied to all future learning experiences. These opportunities encourage respect, self-belief, excellence and enjoyment and prepare our pupils for the next stage of their education.
OfSTED 2019 states that ‘Expectations are consistently high across the school. Teachers plan interesting lessons and incorporate new vocabulary at every opportunity. No learning time is wasted. Staff expect pupils to work hard, to try their best and work earnestly.’
The atmosphere at Blandford St Mary is friendly and all of our teachers and staff are committed to developing our children academically, physically, emotionally and socially, giving them the very best experiences of learning.
We pride ourselves on good relationships with parents/carers - we value your opinions and welcome your involvement in all aspects of school life.
I hope you find our website informative and that it gives you a ‘flavour’ of Blandford St Mary. However, I would warmly encourage you to come and see first-hand the magic of our school. I am always happy to meet and speak with parents and carers personally, and guarantee that a warm welcome will always await you!
Please do not hesitate to get in contact with us if you require any further information or would like to arrange a visit to our wonderful school.
With best wishes
Mrs Rosaleen Beaver
