St Mary’s School review report published

17 July 2023

St Mary’s School has been reviewed as part of the Jersey Schools Review Framework. The full report is available online. 

The Jersey Schools Review Framework was piloted across Government schools from 2016 – 2019. After a pause during COVID, review visits have re-started this academic year.

Reviews take place every three years and consider the environment in the school, the standards of learning, teaching and achievement, the behaviour and personal development of pupils, and the effectiveness of school leadership. 

A team of four reviewers visited the school over three days in late June. The team was made up of an independent external lead reviewer, who has experience in conducting reviews in other jurisdictions, a Senior Adviser from the Department for Children, Young People, Education and Skills (CYPES) and senior school leaders currently working in Jersey schools. 

During the review, the review team visited lessons across all year groups; spoke to leadership staff and pupils; sampled pupils’ work and heard pupils read; and observed lessons, breaktimes and lunchtimes.

Headteacher of St Mary’s School, Maria Stegenwalner, said: “I am pleased that the review recognised the positive ethos of St Mary’s School, our commitment to inclusion and ensuring that all children do well. 

 “I’d like to thank the children, staff and parents who contributed to this process, and who helped the reviewers draw their conclusions and I welcome the recommendations provided. 

 “I look forward to working with the whole team to build on this review and to continue to ensure that our children are safe and happy in their learning as we support them in becoming the best they can be.”
