Hello and a very warm welcome to St Mary's Church of England Academy!
Our website is designed to give you a flavour of our school but we invite you to visit to find out much more. We have a thoughfully designed learning environment that engages all children in their learning, as seen in their good behaviour around school.
We serve the community of Mildenhall and outlying villages. A two form entry school with a distinctive Christian ethos, we are fully inclusive and welcome all children and their families.
Our family here at St Mary's supports every child to develop a love of learning through achievement no matter their starting point. The curriculum is designed around 'Learning Challenges', which promote enquiry led learning and independent thinking through cross curricular linking of subjects. We engage and motivate children to learn through a variety of approaches and opportunities. We also value the importance of 'free play' to ensure children have the time and space to consolidate their learning and social skills. A range of after school activities provide opportunities to try new things and follow interests.
We have invested in our SEN and pastoral provision for children, and are fortunate to have a group of highly trained and skilled Teaching Assistants, who work alongside our Family Support worker and THRIVE practitioner to assist children in overcoming barriers to learning. Our Speech & Language therapist, Nuture teacher, Counsellor and Play therapist also offer sessions to individuals and small groups during the week.
Please contact our Office on 01638 713317 to arrange a visit, we look forward to meeting you!
