Admissions

We are very pleased to be able to offer tours of the school on a regular basis.  They are open to all prospective parents, no matter how old your child is now.  Please email the school office (admin@shenfield-st-marys.essex.sch.uk) to make an appointment for a tour with the Head Teacher.  Our Curriculum page guides you to the key aspects of learning and teaching in this school.  https://www.shenfieldstmarys.co.uk/curriculum/

 

Our admission arrangements are available below however, our admissions officer is happy to explain our admissions criteria further.  For pupils joining at any other time apart from when they are four years old, the mid-year admissions procedure should be followed. 

School Uniform

 

At Shenfield St Mary’s, we believe a school uniform helps to promote a visual identity for the school and a sense of community for the pupils.  It also sets a level playing field for our children, who may otherwise be vulnerable to the pressures of fashion.

 

Our uniform policy has been established in consultation with parents. Our aim is to be inclusive and not prohibitive in terms of cost.  To that end, we have negotiated with Smarty Pants and Red Oak Roller, internet based uniform supply companies, a discount for certain badged items and PE kit which can be bought directly from them at www.smartypantsschoolwear.com  or www.redoak-schooluniform.co.uk . Other non-badged items are generally available from a number of high street retail outlets.  There is a range of good quality nearly-new items on sale at the PFA shop, open after school one afternoon a week.

 

All items (clothes, coats, shoes, school bags and wellingtons) must be clearly marked with the child’s name. This is really important as losing items can be quite distressing for children.
