Learning together – to achieve excellence
We commit ourselves to continuously improving the way we help the children to learn by continually developing our own knowledge and skills.
To foster a harmonious, co-operative relationship between parents, teachers and governors
who, working together, provide a happy and caring school where children are valued and have
the opportunity to succeed.
We will achieve this through:-
Embracing new technology to enhance top quality teaching.
Ensuring the highest standards of learning.
Creating an enjoyable place to work and learn.
Working with all members of the community to provide a secure and caring yet challenging
Our students and staff will be successful, independent life-long learners who are supportive,
active, caring citizens and will enhance the life and growth of society.
A centre of excellence at the heart of our community.
St. Mary’s School promotes high achievement and learning for life by working with children to:
∙ Develop thinking skills – knowing how to learn
∙ Become highly motivated life long readers
∙ Meet the challenges of the modern world
∙ Have high self-esteem – belief in themselves and respect for others and the environment
∙ Be able to work independently and collaboratively
∙ Achieve high standards in all areas of the curriculum
∙ Seek to extend themselves in mind, body and spirit
We believe that each child will succeed through experiencing quality in:
∙ A positive ethos of support, challenge and encouragement
∙ A relevant, forward thinking, broad and balanced curriculum
∙ A stimulating, interactive, learning environment
∙ Innovative teaching and an investigative approach to learning
∙ A variety of exciting learning resources
∙ An enriching programme of extra-curricular activities and visits
∙ Learning partnerships between school, home and the community
The governors have adopted light and navy blue as the school colours. Sweatshirts and polo shirts, with the embroidered school
logo, may be purchased through our School Uniform Shop. Grey trousers, shorts, pinafore dresses or skirts may also be worn. It is
important that all the children feel comfortable in their clothes and shoes and can dress and undress themselves.
Children need an outdoor pair of sensible, black shoes to wear to school. High-heeled shoes, clogs or other unsuitable footwear
should not be worn in school. We also ask for your support regarding make-up and jewellery. Make-up or jewellery should not be
worn at school. Children with pierced ears may wear only one stud or sleeper in the lobe of each ear.

The curriculum for our Early Years classes is based on the Government’s Foundation Stage Curriculum Guidance. It is sub-divided
into six areas of learning:
∙ Personal, social and emotional development
∙ Communication, language and literacy
∙ Mathematical development
∙ Knowledge and Understanding of the world
∙ Physical development
∙ Creative development
The areas of topics will be linked to short topics.
Shortly after the children have settled into school, the Early Years Team will assess the children to find out about their knowledge
and abilities, so that each child’s learning needs can be met. This assessment takes place through normal, everyday class activities
and the children are unaware of the process. Parents and children will have the opportunity to discuss the assessment and other
areas of your child’s development at the Autumn Parent Consultation Meeting.
