Thanks for visiting St Mary & St Paul’s CE Primary School’s updated website – we hope you find it useful.
Our school is a small and friendly one-form entry primary school situated near to the historic town of Prescot in Knowsley, Merseyside. As a school, our mission statement ia “Life in all its fullness through Learning and Love” We pride ourselves on the successes that all of our children have, and on ensuring that each of our children receives an education that meets their individual strengths and needs.
Children are able to join our school from the start of the half-term after their third birthday, when they enter our Nursery class. Our Nursery and Reception classes work very closely together and have lovely, light and airy classrooms and a great shared outdoor space.
Children then move through the school into Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, where they will enjoy a really rich and interesting curriculum that we hope provides every child with a real love of learning. Children also have the chance to enjoy a wide range of visits to different places – ranging from Catalyst Science Museum to Blackpool Lights, and including a residential trip in Year 6 to Barnstondale. We also run lots of after-school clubs, including art, cookery, football, rugby, choir, music and even fencing!
When they leave St Mary & St Paul’s, lots of our children then go to local Knowsley secondary schools, including Knowsley Park/Prescot School, Lord Derby Academy and St Edmund Arrowsmith, as well as other local schools such as Rainhill High and De La Salle (St Helens).
We have good links with our local churches, St Mary and St Paul’s, and go over to St Paul’s at least once every half-term for special services, such as Christingle, Harvest and Easter.
Children regularly join our school mid-year when moving into the area, and we have spaces in most of our classes for such mid-year transfers. Because of our excellent Learning Mentor and Family Support Worker support, we always find that children settle in quickly and are very soon part of the St Mary & St Paul’s family. If you are looking for a school in the Prescot & Whison area for your child, please give us a call as we’d be delighted to show you round our fabulous school!
