Welcome to Our School

 As you enter our school, you will find us ‘Learning Together’ in faith, love and friendship; we pride ourselves on our strong family atmosphere. At St Mary’s, a highly motivated and dedicated team ensure that all children aspire to achieve their full potential, both academically and socially.

Every child is valued for their uniqueness and our strong pastoral support enables them to develop the self-esteem and skills they will need to be successful in life; playing, learning and working together now and in the future. The support, challenge and determination to achieve exceptional outcomes for all within our school community is fostered by everyone.

Adults, children and families are all supported to achieve and thrive. We aim to nurture children who are inclusive, tolerant and, most importantly, enthusiastic about life itself; they are set superb examples of this by the caring members of our school community.

The children are enabled to successfully grow into citizens of the future through our diverse and creative curriculum, where learning is rooted in experience. We believe that ‘Learning Together’ with respect and tolerance provides the perfect start to a life-long journey of discovery and fulfilment.

Headteacher

Our School Values

A group of children, staff and Governors worked together to develop the vision by which we can all live at St Mary’s. Taking inspiration from the fact that the famous fifth Astronomer Royal, Nevil Maskelyne (1732 –1811), is buried at St Mary’s Church, we felt our ethos could build on an astronomical analogy. This was supported by verses from Daniel 12:3, "Those who have insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who lead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever" and Genesis 26:4, "Your descendants will become as numerous as the stars of the sky, and all the nations of the earth will be blessed." We brought these elements together in our 'shining brightly' ethos:

‘Faith in Everyone to Shine Brightly’

We feel this phrase encompasses our strong belief that everyone at St Mary’s has the capacity to shine brightly in all they do. All St Mary’s children are stars who can shine through their talents, attitude and efforts.

We use our ‘shining brightly’ ethos and the ‘stars and space’ analogy across the school to inspire everyone.
