Welcome to St. Mary’s! We are a Catholic Primary School in the town of Bodmin, Cornwall. The school is part of a wider family of schools across the South West brought together in a Multi-Academy Trust by the diocese of Plymouth. Thank you for visiting our website, we hope you find the information you are looking for. Should you have any concerns regarding the safety or well being of a child, please contact myself, Mrs Alana McGovern, Mrs Rebecca Jones or Mrs Lorna Drzymala as soon as possible. We are committed to safeguarding all children in our care and appreciate your support in this. Furthermore, please feel free to contact Mrs Farmer in the school office with any other queries you may have.
Following the teachings of Jesus, we strive to create a welcoming, caring and secure learning environment in which every child is cherished and nurtured. We are ambitious for all our children and want them to develop their talents, abilities and skills to the highest levels. We are committed to ensuring that every child flourishes.
At St. Mary’s we set high standards and have six ‘Golden Rules’ which all members of the school family follow. They are:
- We are gentle
- We are kind and helpful
- We listen
- We look after property
- We work hard
- We are honest
We believe these are rules for life and guide our journey, our work and our play.
