Welcome to Middleton St Mary's CE (VC) Primary School!
We are a large Church of England School based in South Leeds. We serve the Middleton Community linked to St Mary's Church and Leeds Diocese.
We aim to make learning as fun and as innovative as possible in a safe and stimulating environment, where all children are given opportunities to grow academically, morally and socially. At St Mary's, we promote the school values of:
Honesty – Learning – Respect – Faith - Responsibility
alongside our motto of:
Believe, belong, achieve
As a parent/carer, we hope that you will approach us with anything that concerns or worries you. We want to ensure that your child enjoys their time with us and that they take away many happy memories. If we do not know, we cannot do anything about it.
We hope you find the information on this website useful, if you have further questions please do not hesitate to contact either myself via the school office.
Yes, we are a Requires Improvement School under the eyes of Ofsted. This does not mean that our provision is not 'good', it simply means that our assessment data at EYFS (Reception), KS1 (Year 2) and KS2 (Year 6) requires improvement. We accept this and would like to say that we are on a journey to improve this. We are adding 10% each year and have significantly improved our Phonics Data (Year 1) in June 2019 to 80%. This was 2% below national. This year, we know that results in all year groups will be even better due to the training and support received staff have received and the determination of staff. Watch this space!
On 25th - 26th September 2018, our school was inspected by Ofsted (Section 5 inspection). The school was graded Requires Improvement. Since then, the governors, staff and Senior Leadership Team have been working extremely hard to improve all aspects of the school identified by Ofsted. This will take some time. On 17th December 2019, HMI carried out a monitoring visit under section 8 of the Education Act (see information for parents) and we have had three futher monitoring visits last school year! The school is not quite there yet but please do not let this deter you. Come and visit the school to see for yourself, we would love to show you around - we are delighted to be able to welcome visitors back in school!
