St Mary's Church of England Primary School aims to
Unlock every child’s potential as a unique child of God.
Our aim is to ensure that every child’s unique strengths are celebrated and strengthened alongside gaining an excellent academic, social, emotional and physical education.
In our last Department for Education Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) inspection the distinctiveness and effectiveness of Shenfield St Mary's as a Church of England school were judged to be outstanding, for the following reasons:
In October, we welcomed Mrs Naeem to our worship. She gave the children a very informative talk about her Islam faith using a power point and artefacts to help the children understand. Having visited many schools, she commented several times about how impressed she was with the children's knowledge of both Islam and Christianity. The children enjoyed having the opportunity to dress in traditional head coverings and clothes as well as beating a special drum the way Muslims do when celebrating Eid at the end of Ramadan.
