Message from Head of School
It is with pleasure I welcome you to St Martin’s CE Primary School. Having opened in 2015 as the newest school in the Frays Academy Trust, St Martin’s is now in its fourth year of operation. The school achieved a ‘good’ Ofsted inspection in June 2018 and earlier in March also received a ‘Good’ in the SIAMS inspection. It is from this success I now join the school as Head of School to move the school forwards in its ambition to provide outstanding education for all.
Those that visit the school are instantly impressed by the modern facilities which include a food technology room, MUGA and dance studio. But the school is much more than this.
The school also provides a Specialist Resource Provision for pupils with an EHC plan for Autistic Spectrum Disorder. Pupils part of the Oasis provision benefit from an OT room, Sensory room and specialist therapies such as music therapy alongside the National Curriculum subjects and ‘are well supported to meet their individual learning needs.’ Ofsted report 2018
As a Church of England school, a Christian ethos is at our heart and our school values of Respect, Compassion, Generosity, Forgiveness, Perseverance, Courage, Justice and Trust are promoted throughout everything we do in school.
‘Parents and pupils of all faiths and none say they feel welcome and included, whilst also valuing what the Christian character and the school’s Christian values bring to their lives’ SIAMS report 2018.
At St Martin’s we want all children to succeed and aspire to reach their full potential we do this whilst encouraging a love of learning.
St Martin’s is a ‘happy and inclusive school where pupils are safe and valued and enjoy learning.’
