Our Mission Statement

Our Mission

Our mission statement at St Mary’s Primary Academy is embedded by the

statement of ethos:

“We value all in the name of Jesus the Christ”

At Saint Mary’s we recognise that the personal development of pupils, spiritually, morally, socially and culturally, plays a significant part in their ability to learn and achieve. We therefore aim to provide an education that provides pupils with opportunities to explore and develop their own values and beliefs, spiritual awareness, high standards of personal behaviour, a positive, caring attitude towards other people, an understanding of their social and cultural traditions and an appreciation of the diversity and richness of the cultures.

The aims and ethos of our school are:

* To be a safe, happy, caring community of learners

* To help all individuals regardless of their race, gender or disability to acquire the skills and knowledge needed to achieve their full potential in a rapidly changing world

* To develop understanding of and respect for a wide range of religious values, languages and cultural traditions and different ways of life

* To encourage an enjoyment of life-long learning

* To encourage positive parental and community involvement

* To promote healthy lifestyles

* To provide a curriculum that is stimulating, broad, balanced, innovative and creative

* To celebrate achievement
