New Reception Families September 2023

Welcome to St Mary Mags!

If you are visiting this page because you are considering applying to our school for next September - welcome!

Starting school is a very important time for the children as well as for their families.  We work hard to ensure that we provide a welcoming, happy and secure learning environment.  

Our intake is 30 pupils every year and the children follow the Early Years Curriculum.  Children are encouraged to explore their own interests and take an independent approach to their learning.  They learn through play-based activities alongside short-directed teaching activities  and group work.  The outdoor area is just as important as the indoor area and the children have access to this, whatever the weather.

If you would like to arrange  a one to one visit to the school with the Headteacher, please make an appointment with the school secretary on 01273 327533 or email office@stmarymags.brighton-hove.sch.uk

Universal School Meals

All children in Reception are entitled to a free school meal every day when they are in school.  We encourage parents & carers to try their child on school dinners as they will have access to a variety of meals each week and are encouraged to try new foods.
