Hello and welcome

Welcome to 'St Mary's Primary School, Dechomet' website. We hope by browsing our site you will be able to gain a sense of the happy, caring and vibrant learning environment we provide for our children.

Our school has recently been modernised and extended including the provision of a new 'Multi Purpose Sports Hall'.  In addition, a new, fully equipped sports pitch has been constructed and is now in everyday use. With our new and up to date facilities we are extremely well equipped to provide a high quality education to each and every child

All our staff are very committed and work tirelessly to provide a wide range of experiences both during and after school so that each individual pupil develops to his/her fullest potential. Our recent Inspection Report which you can view in the Parent Area, highlights such aspects as the quality working relationships, the excellent provision for learning, the outstanding Pastoral Care  and the high standards  achieved by our pupils.

Whilst we are a catholic school we presently welcome children from other religions and backgrounds. Our pupils are nurtured in an environment where respect and understanding of others play a key part in their moral and spiritual development.

Should you wish to gain a sense of the warm, welcoming atmosphere for yourself please do contact the school to arrange an appointment to view the school and speak with members of our staff.

With sincere good wishes

Mrs Oonagh McNally, PRINCIPAL
