Kelvedon St. Mary’s Primary Academy is a Church of England primary school. We have a commitment to inclusive education and strive to maintain high quality teaching and learning environments for all children.

Our vision is to create an environment where every learner has the opportunity to amaze us (Luke 2:33).

We have been on a long journey to realise this vision and in February 2016 Ofsted recognised that we had achieved it by grading the school as outstanding. But the journey doesn’t stop! My expert team of teachers, learning support staff, administration staff and directors are committed to maintaining the very highest standards for your child and are always seeking ways in which they can improve learning experiences and outcomes for everyone who is part of our school.

My teams challenge the status quo, are able to learn, unlearn and relearn; they are open minded, have a growth mind set and are brilliant at sharing learning across the school and region. They are like this because they want to provide your child with the best learning experiences possible – nothing is beyond our dreams!

Your child will enjoy an all-round education here at Kelvedon St. Mary’s. We will equip them with the academic skills that they need to tackle a challenging and changing world. We will provide them with experiences and opportunities to develop new and exciting skills that will round them as individuals. We will nurture them to become caring, compassionate and active members of society.

We have some very exciting times ahead of us and I am really looking forward to experiencing and sharing them with you all.

Learning together,

Mr. M. Walsh BEd (HONS) NPQH Headteacher

OFSTED 2016 – This is an outstanding school

‘The headteacher and the senior team have successfully created a distinctive, caring ethos in which pupils quickly develop the confidence and skills to thrive academically and socially.’

‘Teaching is highly effective. Teachers, who know their pupils well, have very high expectations of what they can achieve. They plan learning which is imaginative and enthuses all pupils.’

‘Pupils’ personal development and welfare is exceptionally well provided for. Leaders take great care to ensure that pupils’ emotional and social skills are well developed. As a result, pupils are resilient and responsible learners.’
