Mellor St Mary CE Primary School

Learning Together


On behalf of the Pupils, Staff and Governors welcome to our school community and school website. We hope you find everything you need to know about our wonderful school and so much more.


We are a small one form entry, voluntary aided, Church of England primary school situated on the western edge of the Ribble Valley. We have good links with our local Church and Mellor community.


As Headteacher, it is my great privilege to lead Mellor St Mary CE Primary School and be part of this small, caring and supportive Christian family.


Our aim is to provide all children with an education of the highest quality within a caring Christian environment. Our school is one full of faith and love. Everyone within it is passionately motivated to make every aspect of learning the very best it can.


We pride ourselves on providing rich and varied opportunities for children to help them to discover about the world and themselves by unlocking their hidden skills and talents in a fun and nurturing way. Our curriculum is designed to actively engage, excite and enthuse our children and develop the unique potential of each child, whatever their gifts, abilities or needs. Ultimately our intention is to:

  • Develop our heads and bodies : What we learn
  • Develop our hearts and character: Who we are
  • Develop our actions and attitudes: How we live and learn
  • Develop our moral compass: Where we fit in the world.


As a school we firmly believe that we can only achieve the best for our children by close co-operation between home and school. This website has been specifically designed to provide regular updates about teaching and learning for all our school families and friends. Only through collaboration can we ensure:

  • Every child has the ability to do amazing things.
  • Every child has the right to the best opportunities in life.
  • Every child can reach their true potential.
  • 'For with God nothing shall be impossible' (Luke 1:37)


If you have not already visited Mellor St Mary then please do come and see us. You are most welcome. Please telephone to make an appointment to see us 'in action'.


We look forward to hearing from you.
