Welcome to St Martin’s Church of England Voluntary Aided School
Welcome from Juliet Robinson, headteacher.
On behalf of the governing body and staff, I would like to offer you a very warm welcome to St Martin’s Church of England (VA) Primary School, Fangfoss.
We work in close partnership with our church, parents, pupils and our wider community to provide the best possible environment, curriculum and growth opportunities for our children.
Here, pupils are encouraged to flourish as individuals and to fulfil their potential. This is a caring, loving and vibrant village primary school, where you can also access before and after school care from 7:30am until 5:45pm and a fully integrated nursery school for 3 and 4 year olds.
Here at St Martin’s, we strive to create a warm, reflective and inspirational learning environment, where our core Christian values infuse all that we learn, do and say in our community, enabling our pupils to grow in compassion, trust, responsibility and creativity.
"A warm, reflective and inspirational learning environment, where our core Christian values infuse all that we learn, do and say in our community."
We nurture our children’s spiritual, moral, social, physical and emotional development alongside academic excellence, supporting them to make the best possible progress, whatever their starting points and individual needs.
If you haven’t visited our school or would like to know more, please do contact us. We would love to hear from you!
Welcome from Revd. Mark Poole, Priest-in-Charge of the Barmby Moor Group of Churches
Hello there! My name is Mark, and I am the vicar of St Martin’s church here in Fangfoss, and I am privileged to serve St Martin’s primary school in a number of ways.
I am a Foundation governor and the link governor for Religious Education and Collective Worship. I am very proud of the high standard of curriculum provision for Religious Education throughout the school. This is underpinned by a wealth of enriching experiences that supports both the children’s education and their spiritual development. This goes a long way to embodying our school values.
It is a privilege to be invited regularly into school to lead collective worship and a real joy to welcome the children into their village church several times a year for special services. Classes also visit church to help enhance their learning, and I always look forward to these occasions.
St Martin’s church now hosts a monthly Sunday Celebration service which is a short informal, interactive and fun service suitable for children and families and folks of any age! These are often attended by children from the school.
Rev’d Mark Poole, Priest-in-Charge of the Barmby Moor Group of Churches
