Our School Vision, Ethos & Values

Our School Motto

Our motto is ‘Let Your Light Shine’ and this underpins all we are aiming to achieve at St Mary’s. It enables us to prepare the children to be life-long learners who achieve their unique God-given potential.

Our School Aim

Our aim is for children to leave our school with a love of God and with strong values of respect for one other. We intend to do this by ensuring our Catholic ethos is at the core of our curriculum. This helps children to develop their social and moral code, as they build their sense of uniqueness and self-worth as an individual. We have excellent links with the Parish community. All classes undertake a range of charitable acts and outreach work in the local and wider community so that children see themselves as part of the community and develop social responsibility.
