Our School

At Dunmow St Mary’s we aim to provide a rich, meaningful learning environment with high quality teaching where every child is given the opportunity to develop independent learning skills through a curriculum based on first-hand experience and enquiry. We want our children to be successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens and we aim to work in partnership with parents, the Church and the local community to achieve this. The focus in the classroom is on challenge, engagement, enjoyment and achievement.

We encourage a growth mindset so that mistakes are seen as a pathway to new learning.

As a Church of England school, we have a strong pastoral structure and Christian ethos. We value the uniqueness of every child and aim to provide a happy, caring environment where everyone can reach their potential – both academically and personally. We aim to create a culture of mutual respect and tolerance.

We are an inclusive school and have high expectations for all. Much of our success is due to our highly motivated staff alongside hardworking pupils and supportive parents, Governors and the church team.

We hope you find all the information you need. Please visit the website regularly to keep up to date with what is going on, and feel free to contact the school with any queries you may have.
