St. Mary's Catholic Primary School

A place of educational excellence with Christ at the centre


Each month, the whole school focusses on a core Christian value. These include such values: as compassion, co-operation, tolerance, respect and service. These values are introduced in assemblies, developed through and embedded in school life. They are a guide to how we live our lives, influencing our attitudes and actions, encouraging us all to take responsibility for our own learning and behaviour. 

Focussing on these values encourages individuals to ponder, engage with and explore issues from different perspectives; developing a sense of empathy for different viewpoints, as well as developing an intellectual curiosity about the world.
