A brief description of our school and its community setting
St. Cuthbert Mayne is a two-form entry Catholic junior school within the trusteeship of the Diocese of Westminster. As such, it has voluntary-aided status and gives priority within its admission arrangements to children of the Catholic faith.
The catchment area is particularly wide. This results in a very diverse pattern of social and economic background. The school deprivation indicator is low.
Attendance is good, with little unauthorised absence. The school monitors attendance and has a number of procedures to follow up absences in order to achieve excellent attendance levels.
Most children transfer directly from St. Rose’s Infant School and most Year 6 move on to John F.Kennedy Secondary School.
Children’s attainment on entry is above regional and national averages in the core subjects. Children with special educational needs and disability, including those with Education and Health Care Plans, are identified on the SEN provision list. The majority of pupils are White/British. A small minority of children are registered for FSM, although many who are thought to be eligible do not apply. A number of children have a first language other than English. Details are recorded on the annual census.
A significant amount of extended provision is provided for pupils in after-school or extra-curricular clubs.
Currently these are: Breakfast Club, multi-sports, gymnastics, Mile A Day, football, netball, athletics, music, orchestra.
