As a Catholic School we believe that the teachings of Christ are central to everything we do at St Mary's. Following His example we aim to produce a caring environment, based on mutual respect and within the framework of our faith. We try to live the school's ethos, rather than merely talk or write about it.
We aim to teach to the highest standards, and to ensure that the curriculum we offer is both broad and balanced within the context of the National Curriculum. We take into account the ability of each child and we aim for the ideal of each child being able to succeed at his/her own level of potential.
We value all our children equally but we also value their right to be different and to excel in different ways. We respect all our children equally, regardless of gender, ethnic background, creed or disability.
St Mary’s is a happy and caring school and our mission statement is a living document. Staff and pupils work together to provide a totally inclusive first-rate education. We view all our children as equal and work with each individual to enable them to reach their full potential. All this is only possible by the distinctive sense of team effort which characterises St Mary’s: from staff, the children, you as parents; and many others who contribute to the life of the school in various ways.
