Welcome to St Mary’s R.C. Primary and Pre-School

St. Mary’s Mission Statement

Everyone is Welcome at St. Mary’s Pre-school and Primary School.

We listen to the Word of God and from this we always try to help each other.

We Witness a loving God who is at the centre of all we do.

We care for the Welfare of everyone by encouraging them to always do their best.

We share daily Worship that helps us to develop good relationships with God, ourselves and each other.

We love to welcome everyone with a smile! We celebrate diversity in the classroom – we welcome children and families from all religions and backgrounds at St Mary’s. We’re a Catholic school but we think its great to learn about other faiths and cultures and we encourage all of our children to be respectful to everyone.

Ofsted Good

“St Mary’s is a good Catholic school, where there is a commitment to developing each child academically, socially and spiritually.”
