  • At St Mary’s School we seek to maintain a vibrant, happy school where the whole school community work together to achieve these aims


St Mary's Christian Values 

As a church school we believe it is important to uphold the values God taught us in the Bible. Our six school values were suggested and agreed by the children of St Marys. They represent those things that the children think are particularly important to hold dear.  We feel that displaying these qualities will make us ‘the best we can be’.  We explicitly plan opportunities to develop children's understanding of what these mean. We aim for our children to be able to reflect on these values and apply them to different circumstances and problems, so developing their understanding of right and wrong that will guide them through life.
