Our Vision Statement

At St Mary’s, we find out who we are. We discover our talents and we learn and succeed. We have courage: we are brave. Together we are a family.

Our Ethos Statement

At St Mary’s we are very clear that we are here to provide a school family that will support our children to become the very best they can be. We will have aspirations, hopes and dreams for our children and do all we can to help each and every child know what success feels like. Our community is made up of children, families, staff, governors, friends and community members. We all have our part to play in our children’s success. We expect every member of our community to support and demonstrate a commitment to our children and community and the values that are important to us.

  • I say please and thank you. I look for the good in others.
  • I know I am an important member of my school. I want to make St Mary’s an even better place.
  • In the classroom and the playground, I help anyone I can, not just my friends. I notice other children and include them in my games.
