Our Aims

Our Aims

‘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.


St. Mary’s School community is based on the values of a Christian family. We work hard to achieve a high quality of care through our Christian foundation, developing values, self-esteem and character to enable everyone to be happy and reach their full potential.


We aim:

  • For all our children to reach their full potential through access to an exciting and stimulating curriculum, developing the skills to become life-long learners, whilst meeting the full requirements of the National Curriculum.
  • For all our children to grow as thinking, confident, responsible and caring individuals with clear values rooted firmly in our Christian Foundation.
  • To provide equal opportunities for everyone in the school community to develop personally and professionally in a safe, secure and supportive environment.
  • To encourage children to feel part of the local and wider community and contribute to the life of it, including through our close links with St. Mary’s Church.
  • To maintain co-operative and supportive relationships within the school community of children, families, staff and governors.
  • To maintain a purposeful, attractive, safe and stimulating learning environment.

In line with the Trust Deed of the school and the Statement of Entitlement, the governing body monitor the quality of RE, worship and ensure that Christian character of the school is is upheld. Regular monitoring visits by the link governor along with a presentation to the governing body by the RE and Christian Distinctiveness lead, ensures that the vision and values of the school are at the forefront of our work to the benefit of the children.

Christian Distinctiveness Working Party Minutes

Our working party meets termly and consists of school leaders, governors and members of the local community and clergy. The purpose of the group is to guide the school's strategic direction in terms of Christian Distinctiveness as a Church of England School. As a result of the work carried out by the working party, the school was graded EXCELLENT in its last SIAMS inspection. A copy of the report can be found under 'statutory information, OFSTED and Performance Data' on this website. All minutes from these meetings are added to the next Governing Body agenda for information, discussion and questioning.
