St Mary's is a Church of England Voluntary Controlled Infant School for 4 - 7 year olds. It is situated in the rural village of Shackleford on the outskirts of Godalming, Surrey. There are currently 81 children on roll in three classes.
In our recent OFSTED visit (February 2019) the inspector commented
'Everyone plays their part and, collectively, do their best to achieve great things in this small school. The impact of this was clearly noted by parents, who feel the school provides their children with the best possible start in life.'
At St Mary's we aim to create a love for learning in each child that will be life-long. We believe that this is possible by producing a range of inspirational teaching and learning experiences within a safe, caring and vibrant environment.
Our curriculum is exciting, up-to-date and practical with an emphasis on the development of creativity across the curriculum.
We believe that our school environment reflects our success in learning, providing a well-resourced and organised place to be. The recent additions to our outside learning areas including a vegetable garden and tree house.
As a church school we promote caring for each other and learning together and believe links with the church, local community and wider world are essential.
We believe children learn best when they are happy. We hope that this website will give you a clear understanding and vision of how we are "Creating a Love for Learning" at St Mary's School.
