I would like to extend my deep gratitude to all the parents and members of our local community who have shown an incredible support and dedication to keeping St Mary's School open and a part of this special community.
I am attaching a statement below which has been issued by the Salford Diocese explaining their decision.
The trustees have noted that those consulted have, "all spoken with a single voice in that they wish for the school to remain open in some form."
The trustees also noted that," governors and school leaders have worked hard to improve the quality of education and the impact of this work is now making a difference."
I thank you all for your unfailing support and I want to thank the staff who have not faltered in their work to give your children the outcomes they deserve.
The whole community should be incredibly proud of all that has been achieved and we look forward to continuing to work together in the future.
Mrs M Bowden
