Saint Martin’s is where children thrive, enjoy their journey and succeed.
Children are happy to be at Saint Martin’s, where experienced and dedicated staff work to provide a learning environment which is stimulating, enriching and nurturing; providing a firm foundation for the educational progress of every child. By providing opportunities, challenges and support each individual will achieve their very best.
Our pupils learn to “have a go” and have fun as they develop their skills and confidence in the classroom as well as during extra-curricular activities, trips and residential visits.
High expectations and an excellent staff to pupil ratio encourage all children to thrive as individuals; the small classes enable teachers to cement strong relationships with pupils and their parents.
“Pupils sustain an excellent rate of progress, as deduced from lesson observations, interviews and samples of their work. They derive high levels of personal satisfaction in their manifold activities”
The staff create vibrant classrooms where a broad and balanced curriculum promotes independent thinkers, an eagerness to learn, curiosity and a positive buzz about the school.
Our teaching programme is based on National Curriculum guidelines and beyond. The core subjects of Mathematics, English and Science and Technology are complemented by elements such as ICT, Geography, History, Religious Education, Art and Design; in addition specialist teaching in Physical Education, Music, Modern Foreign Languages, Dance and Drama enhance the timetable.
Wrap around care is available from 8.00 am – 6.00 pm as an onsite facility for pupils up to Year 2, as is a holiday club which is organised by Funfest. Breakfast club is also available.
“The personal development of the pupils is excellent, it is supported by excellent levels of pastoral care and strong relationships between all members of the school community”
Visiting speakers, trips, residential visits and even Year Group sleepovers provide enrichment opportunities for the all round development of the pupils. An extensive extra-curricular timetable is available.
Our extensive outdoor grounds provide a perfect arena for making dens, climbing trees and exploring nature. Forest School is a highlight for many of the younger children as they as they don their wellies and venture into the woods. Come and join them!
