The Governing Body would like to update our Admissions Policy for 2019/20. The 6 week consultation period will last until 19th Jan 2018. Comments can be emailed to Mrs Woodward at stmaryshawkshaw@bury.gov.uk . Please see the proposed 2019 policy on our website policy page.

Recognising its historic foundation, the school will continue to develop its religious and spiritual character in accordance with the principles of the church at parish and diocesan level. Confident in its own faith, it is quietly respectful of the beliefs of others.

The school remains committed to serve the village and parish by the provision of a high quality education in a caring environment, where Christian values and good relationships among staff, parents and pupils are fostered.

Close links are encouraged with local churches, with the wider community and with the community of schools. Every family is invited to support all aspects of school life.
