Play and Well-being.


Who remembers being outdoors building dens, having pretend picnics or playing in mud? Playing outside is great for children’s health but we know that these types of outdoor play experiences are declining.  

During Childrens Mental Health Week everyone can play a part in helping our children to be healthy on the inside and outside. 

Did you know play can help improve children’s physical and mental wellbeing, build resilience and gain social and emotional health. 


Thinking about St Mary's P.S.?


Please contact the school at 02887738388 or by email: to arrange a 'Guided Tour' of our school, see our school in action, view the P.1. indoor and outdoor classroom, meet the staff and let us answer any questions or queries you may have. 


The online application process is now live on

If you are having any difficulty with this new online process please give us a call and we will do our best to help you.
