St. Mary’s RC Primary School is a denominational school serving the communities of Polbeth and West Calder. We work in partnership with the Parish of Our Lady and St. Bridget to provide spiritual care for our pupils and we aim to support the children as they develop their Christian and moral values. Polbeth Nursery is housed in a separate building within the extensive school grounds. A new ASD Resource, consisting of 3 classes, was opened in August 2015.
St. Mary’s is an integral part of the local community, enjoying strong links with a number of local organisations, St. Kentigern’s Academy and cluster schools.
The school values are at the heart of everything that happens at St. Mary’s. Staff, pupils and parents take great pride in the school and the achievements of its pupils. The supportive Parent Council works alongside the staff in supporting the school’s priorities in improving children’s education and in fundraising activities which help enhance the wider life of the school. The school is continually striving to improve the quality of pupil’s learning experiences.
