A very warm welcome to St Mary’s Catholic Primary School.

It is our mission to nurture and develop the full educational potential of each child based on the example and inspiration of Jesus Christ. We achieve this by providing a very high-quality education in a caring atmosphere of happiness and security, where all are valued and encouraged to reach their goals. The life of our school is firmly founded on gospel values, preparing pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.

We have very high expectations of work and behaviour and we build a partnership with parents and children to achieve this. We recognise parents as the first educators of children and we know that development will continue in the security of a consistent approach of close cooperation and mutual respect between home and school.

We are extremely conscious of the ever-increasing demands and pressures of our modern society. We seek to maintain a balance between striving for personal academic excellence and developing the variety of gifts and talents of the children, to be used in the service of the community.

Thank you for the confidence you place in us by entrusting your children to our care. We know from experience that they will look back on their years at St Mary’s with tremendous affection and that you will feel that we gave them the best possible start to their formal education.

Best Wishes,

Ms J Harte
