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.
School Vision and Values
Staff and governors met to consider the school’s vision and values and to look
at what our focus and purpose is as an organisation. We 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.
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 creative curriculum. A curriculum which is intended to prepare our learners to make a positive contribution towards society and enjoy future success.
“Excellence through Faith and Learning”
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.
