Christian Ethos & Religious Education

‘Learning, Achieving, Growing in God’s Love’

Our school community is centred on the love of God, in His Son, Jesus Christ and strengthened by the Holy Spirit. We will be generous and visible people of Jesus Christ, reaching out in love to all, brining hope, aspiration and life in all its fullness to our children.




Religious Education


At St. Mary's we follow the Bedfordshire Syllabus for the major world faiths and Understanding Christianity for all Christian-based units. Our long term plan for RE is attached here for you to see.




Eucharist is held half-termly in the school hall for all children, staff, parents and visitors within the community. Our Eucharist service plays an important role within the life of our school and it is a time when those who have made their First Communion may participate fully in accepting the sacrament of bread. Services begin at 9:30am, usually on the penultimate Friday of each half term. Please check with the school office or on the calendar of this site as our service is subject to change. Everyone is most welcome to attend!

Our Values
Our values system has been chosen especially for the children at St. Mary's. Staff, governors, parents and pupils gathered to choose the values which underpin all we do in school. Altogether, 12 values were chosen and each one is focussed upon across a half term in school spanning a 2 year cycle. The value of each half term is central to the teaching within Collective Worship which is held daily in school. Biblical texts are used to support the teaching of the value in school as a way of ensuring Jesus' message is shared.
All children in school are added to a house when they join us. There are 4 houses; Ely, St. Albans, Peterborough and Canterbury. When children in school demonstrate a school value such as friendship, forgiveness or compassion, they earn a token for their house. The house at the end of the term with the highest number of tokens wins! So far winning houses have enjoyed an afternoon out or a popcorn and film afternoon with the Headteacher.

Bishop's Lent Challenge


Each year the Bishop sets a challenge for schools to participate in. This year we managed to achieve Gold by involving our entire community! Here is our certificate:

United Reform Church


In RE, we have been thinking about our links with other places of worship across our town that are of differing Christian denominations. 


Here are some photos of our visit to the URC in the town centre.
