Stay and Play


At St Maries Primary School, our aim is to create a happy and secure environment, where children will develop confidence and an eagerness to learn. We recognise that as parents, you are an important educator in your child’s life and it is our wish to begin to create positive partnerships with families from the outset.

We have introduced Stay & Play Sessions and we welcome all family members, including; Mums, Dads, Partners, Grandparents and Carers etc. You are invited to stay and play with your children as we value your support and recognise the importance of partnership with parents.


Benefits of Stay and Play sessions

Stay & Play sessions give you the opportunity to see your child interact with other children and learn through play in a relaxed environment. Staff will set up activities following the children’s interests and parents/carers can come along and take part in the activities, learn new skills and ideas for learning at home through play. You will also have the opportunity to find out about school life and ask any questions 

Christmas stay and play

Parents comments from stay and play sessions;


I love making things with Lilly and watching her enjoy herself.


It was good.


Jayden really liked decorating the Christmas tree decorations.


It was great seeing out daughter in this environment.


Great to see what the children are doing in school. Also a great way for parents to meet each other. 


It was nice watching them work out a little story.
