The Mortimer Federation of St. John’s and St. Mary’s is made up of Mortimer St John’s Church of England Infant School and Mortimer St Mary’s Church of England Junior School. At our schools, individuals are valued and helped to achieve their personal best. Children are supported in becoming confident and independent individuals, who thrive on challenge and are motivated to learn. We believe that our distinctive culture at The Mortimer Federation of St. John’s and St. Mary’s comes from our welcoming, encouraging and caring environment based on our values of service, hope and courage. Mortimer St. John’s provides education for our children from the age of four until the age of seven. Our children then move to Mortimer St. Mary’s to complete the primary years in education.I am extremely proud to lead a team that is committed to children’s well-being, achieving high standards and providing the very best opportunities for all in our care. Staff, supported by governors, work hard to deliver a rich and challenging curriculum; to prepare children for future education; and to help them acquire the skills and enthusiasm needed to embrace the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.The excellent start begins in our Early Years Foundation Stage and continues through the school with staff providing a happy, supportive and purposeful environment, and a curriculum that excites and stimulates children’s imaginations and creative thinking. The curriculum is delivered through a cross-curricular approach which is further enhanced by whole-school themed days and other events to promote enquiry-led learning. Frequent trips and visits, community activities and a wide range of after-school clubs further add to the opportunities available to children.We are a self-evaluative school, setting our own aspirations and ambitions. Our pupils are well nurtured and inspired to do their personal best.To find out about our school, we encourage you to come and visit, to see us in action and meet staff and children.
