Vision and Values

Our Vision

We aim to nurture the whole child, with the opportunity to develop their full potential through an inspiring and creative curriculum, instilling a life-long love for learning in an inclusive, supportive Christian community. Providing them with the strength to enable them to flourish.  

Isaiah 40:31

But those who trust in the Lord for help, will find their strength renewed.

They will rise on wings like eagles;

They will run and not grow weary;

They will walk and not grow weak.

Our Values

At St Mary’s CE Primary School, these values are at the heart of everything we do at school. We actively teach these values to children through our curriculum, collective worship and our day to day interactions with children. We always encourage children to reflect these values in their own behaviour in school and in the wider community.

Each half term each value is explored through collective worship, class worship and through daily reflection opportunities for all children.


Love is the most important core value in our school. We strive to bring our community together through love, kindness and friendship. We seek to appreciate everyone for who they are and welcome them to our school family. We encourage the whole school community to consider others before themselves and to practice friendship, compassion, forgiveness and tolerance.


Hope is rooted in God’s love for us. At St Mary’s, we have high hopes and aspirations for all our pupils, our school and our community.


Trust is central to our school community. We trust in God, one another and ourselves. We value those around us who we know we can rely on, who can support and be there for us. When we work together, we grow stronger and are enriched.


One of our core Christian values includes self-respect, respect for each other, the wider community and the world. Respect embraces individual differences and similarities within school and community. We celebrate these differences and rejoice in similarities. As a school, we ensure children have equal opportunities to be successful and appreciate everyone’s talents.


At St Marys we work hard and aim to be the best we can. We know that sometimes things can be difficult, but we keep going and with God’s help we don’t give up.


Friends are incredibly important as children grow up. Friendships allow children to grow and develop social and emotional skills. This ensures that the unique individuality of each person is recognised echoing the value placed by God on the preciousness of each person.
