Welcome to our website.
Please allow me to make a few introductory remarks about Mary Dean’s Church of England Primary School located in the village of Tamerton Foliot in Plymouth.
Mary Dean’s is a wonderful school, which I would have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending to any parent who is understandably concerned about their child’s education. It was the automatic choice for my wife and my two sons, who were both educated here.
There is a strong sense of community in Tamerton Foliot and the school plays an important part in gaining that cohesion across the village through our parents and pupils; our close connections with St Mary’s Church and the various clubs that use our sporting and other facilities including football and scouts etc.
If it’s one thing that Mary Dean’s offers it is stability. After half a century, we currently have only our third Head teacher, Mrs Tracey Jones, who the Governing Body was absolutely delighted to appoint with effect from September 2014.
Tracey shares the Governing Body’s aspiration for continuous improvement. In Ofsted parlance, Mary Dean’s is considered a ‘good school’ but we are not resting on our laurels, in fact we are seriously striving to progress from good to outstanding.
The school regularly performs well academically as the league tables will show and that is important to us. However, there is so much more to a child’s education than SAT scores alone and we are firm believers in enabling all our pupils to shine in whatever form that might take – be it: musically; or in sport or in other creative ways. We consider the needs of each individual child and try to offer as many opportunities as we can.
I hope you enjoy looking at our website.
