As a Catholic School we believe that the teachings of Christ are central to everything we do at St Mary's. Following His example we aim to produce a caring environment, based on mutual respect and within the framework of our faith. We try to live the school's ethos, rather than merely talk or write about it.
We aim to teach to the highest standards, and to ensure that the curriculum we offer is both broad and balanced within the context of the National Curriculum. We take into account the ability of each child and we aim for the ideal of each child being able to succeed at his/her own level of potential.
We value all our children equally but we also value their right to be different and to excel in different ways. We respect all our children equally, regardless of gender, ethnic background, creed or disability.
Our School Prayer
This is our school, let peace dwell here.
Let the rooms be full of contentment, let love abide here;
Love of one another,
Love of mankind,
Love of life itself
And love of God.
Let us remember that as many hands build a house
So many hearts make a school.
