Ethos and Values

Love of Learning. Standing Tall. Make a Difference.

At St. Mary’s we believe that learning should be enjoyable and continue throughout life. We strive to educate the individual, promote independent learning and self confidence, within a Christian environment. We provide learning opportunities to cater for all learning styles. We nurture academic, social and spiritual development in our school community. We provide a secure, positive, and safe learning environment to achieve standards of excellence. We recognise that each child brings their own talents and life experiences to the classroom and encourage children to use those in their learning.

Ours is a Church School, and as such, we seek to foster the spiritual dimension of life which influences how we value ourselves, others and God’s world.

Everyone to value themselves: By nurturing a strong feeling of self-belief, based on Christian principles, we want all people in our school to recognise their own unique talents and abilities and to develop them so as to achieve their potential.

Everyone to value others: As Christians, we believe in the special value of every human being. By working in a mutually supportive environment, in which all voices are heard and respected, our school celebrates the rich diversity of mankind, and our ability to live and work co-operatively to the greater good.

Everyone to value God’s world: We want to safeguard our wonderful world for future generations, by working for its protection and development.
