In English & supported throughout all subjects, we aim to empower & enrich our children’s vocabulary & so prepare them for the next stage in their educational journey (& beyond) so that no child is hindered or held back by a deficit of language as a result of deprivation. We want them to be able to articulate themselves & their learning through a wide bank of subject specific terminology as well as being creative & innovative in their speech & writing. We aim to inspire our children to become fluent, confident life-long readers who can discuss the joy of literature as well as develop their own style & expression through wide opportunities for writing.
We are extremely proud of the high standards of behaviour in our school! We work hard to ensure that children learn how to behave & know how to live successfully together so that everyone can be happy.
We have a policy of positive behaviour & believe in rewarding children to build their self esteem & guide them in the right direction towards becoming the very best that they can be!
We have four Merit Teams: Ruby, Diamond, Sapphire & Emerald and children are given merit points for following the rules & helping each other. We also have a half termly treat afternoon for the winning team! The teams are headed up by Y6s (a boy & girl captain for each team) who have been voted in as good role models & ambassadors.
At St Mary's 'respect yourself, respect others and respect the environment'
Our Golden Rules are easy to remember & easy to follow so that children can be successful at our school:
1. We do our best;
2. We are honest;
3. We are kind and helpful;
4. We walk sensibly;
5. We are good at sitting and listening to each other;
6. We are gentle.
Because we believe in being positive with children, we find that we
have very few behaviour issues in our school & children manage
their own behaviour very well. If there is an ongoing behaviour issue,
there are consequences in place.
We also reward fantastic learning behaviours & have a superstar learner each week from each class who is given a certificate in assembly & has their name published in St Mary's Mag.
