Mission Statement

Love of Learning.  Standing tall. Make a difference


At Lowton St Mary’s, we will help children develop a sense of respect, tolerance and self-confidence. A genuine ‘love of learning’ is nurtured through vibrant and engaging, high quality learning experiences and excellent staff development.

As a church school at the heart of our local community, Christian values of Compassion, Endurance/Resilience, Forgiveness, Friendship, Koinonea and Wisdom support our spiritual and moral development as we grow and learn together in a happy, safe and secure environment.

Children, staff, parents and governors are innovative thinkers, able to work collaboratively and independently in an exciting and supportive learning culture.

We are a welcoming, friendly and caring inclusive school, committed to working in partnership with parents, governors and the Church.

We have the highest expectations of each other and ourselves and feel a sense of worth and of contributing towards something extraordinary.
