School Vision and Values

Staff and the Local School Board met in September 2023 to consider the school’s vision and values and to look at what our focus and purpose is as an organisation. We will revisit our school vision at the beginning of every year to ensure that it truly encapsulates all that we are trying to achieve for our children. 

Our Vision

We will work as a team, in partnership with all members of the school community, to offer a high quality, stimulating, safe and innovative learning environment which values and supports all children to achieve their potential. We will nurture children who understand and are able to adapt positively as active citizens and courageous advocates, to the diverse world in which they live, both now and in the future and grow as people.

Our high standards of teaching and personalised learning are set within a broad, balanced and ambitious curriculum. A curriculum which is intended to prepare our learners to make a positive contribution towards society and enjoy future success.

Our Mission

“Rise above the Ordinary”

At St. Mary’s we provide a welcoming, safe and happy school where everyone is respected and listened to; a school where we take pride in ourselves and our achievements, enabling children to become confident and successful learners.

We aim to rise above the ordinary and promote excellence by providing a positive, inclusive environment for learning and growth. Inspired by our faith in Christ, and together with our parents, carers, churches and communities, we aim for each person to reach their full potential in body, mind, heart and spirit.
