Welcome to St Mary’s Catholic Primary School

I am very proud to welcome you on behalf of the children, staff and governors, to St Mary’s Catholic Primary School, where the Gospel Values of Love, Truth and Compassion for others, underpin all that we do.  

The children always come first at St Mary’s and everything we do is aimed at extending the children’s learning experiences, enriching their lives through the opportunities we offer and encouraging an individual love of learning. The behaviour of our children is exemplary and we are very proud of the working partnership between children, staff and parents.  I am honoured to lead a team of teaching and support staff who are committed in providing high quality learning and pastoral support for all our children, so they grow and develop into confident and successful young people. 

I look forward to welcoming you to our wonderful 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.

“We stand on holy ground, every child, every young person, every adult, is a unique image of God.
We are invited by God to nurture the life of the Spirit in one another as children of God,
so that we become ‘more like Christ’, fully human and fully alive.
This is our FAITH.”
