Welcome to St Mary’s Catholic Primary School

Our Mission Statement 

 

_DSC4346

We aim to create a Christ-centered community where prayer and worship are a natural part of life and where each member is valued, cared for and helped to develop as an individual. Our school community reaches out in partnership to parents and parish.

We aim to build positive relationships,encouraging in our pupils sense of self-respect, respect for others and for all life which is reflected in their conduct.

Through praise and celebration, we aim to build an environment where self-esteem can flourish and pupils can learn self-reliance and independence and the skills for independent learning.

We aim to help our pupils develop as healthy, knowledgeable, responsible and compassionate citizens.

In addition to formal studies, we aim to integrate our Religious Education into the curriculum so that knowledge, concepts and skills are set in the context of faith and faith becomes a way of life.

In curriculum studies, we are committed to high standards, encouraging individual excellence by supporting each child to achieve the best of which he or she is capable.

Testimonials

The curriculum is extremely successful in promoting pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.  This is further enhanced by the school’s distinctive Catholic character.

Behaviour in lessons and around the school is exceptional.  Pupils are invariably polite, friendly and considerate. They have very positive attitudes to learning and work very hard in lessons and when completing written tasks.
