Values and Ethos

St Mary’s Church of England Primary and Nursery School, while professing the uniqueness of the Christian faith, welcomes all children from the neighbourhood regardless of parents’ belief.


We attach high priority to strong links between school, home, church and the community.

We are concerned to ensure that all pupils develop their full educational, spiritual and social potential through high standards in teaching and the Christian values built into the ethos of the school.

We are a school which accepts, loves, forgives and trusts, which helps our children’s confidence to grow through the love of God and our commitment to each other.

Our school endeavours to offer its pupils a safe learning environment. We have expected standards of behaviour based on mutual respect and a positive attitude towards our learning.

It is our aim that parents and school should work together towards this end.
