About Us

Welcome to St Mary’s Catholic Primary School.

We are a one form entry school with a 78 place nursery school in Jarrow that also offers a two year old provision for up to 16 children, a 30 hour provision for 3 and 4 year olds and a wraparound open from 8am to 6pm for all children.

St Mary’s is a ‘family’ where children are nurtured, encouraged, supported and challenged to reach their full potential in a safe and caring environment and both children and their families are included and  respected. Our Golden rules are moral values which underpin all the choices and decisions made by all in school.

Children are rewarded for demonstration of these values in school.  We believe that all children can achieve and we strive to provide the highest quality education and care to enable this to happen. We support all children to make sure they reach their full potential and make good or better progress during their time with us.


Our Mission Statement

This is what we are about. We plant the seeds that one day will grow. We water seeds already planted, knowing that they hold future promise. We lay foundations that will need further development. We provide yeast that produces effects far beyond our capabilities. (Archbishop Oscar Romero)
