Our mission at St Mary’s is to provide the highest quality education for every
child, enabling them to fulfil their potential in a safe & friendly school
community underpinned by Christian values. We want children to develop as
confident, articulate and happy individuals who will love learning throughout
Six key Christian values have been chosen by our school as being particularly
relevant to St Mary’s and every member of our community.
Our values are:
Respect – recognising that we are all individual; celebrating our differences and
accepting that we will not always agree with each other but showing respect
towards each other none the less.
Friendship – being a welcoming, caring and inclusive community in which we
can all feel valued and grow in confidence.
Trust – speaking honestly; listening carefully and openly; promoting strong
relationships of trust and loyalty.
Perseverance – working hard with determination and resilience, even when faced
with difficult challenges; reflecting on our shortcomings and disappointments
Wisdom – developing a lifelong love of learning; providing an inspiring and
creative curriculum both within and beyond lesson; understanding that true
wisdom is far more than knowledge of facts alone.
Hope – preparing for an unknown future with optimism and energy; always
seeking to improve
Throughout the school day, we think about these values and try to live by
These children are some of the winners of our 'Super Learner' award, for showing the value of perseverance in their learning.
