Aims of St. Mary’s C.E. First School


Within a Christian and caring family atmosphere we work together to provide a stimulating and happy school, where everyone can learn and do their best.  Each child is welcomed as being special.

“A small school with huge opportunities.”

We aim to:

  • provide a creative and exciting curriculum which is broad and balanced and matched to individual needs.
  • develop self reliant, independent thinkers, with a positive attitude to learning and an ability to communicate effectively.
  • provide an environment where children and adults feel secure and confident enough to experiment and make mistakes, whilst always striving for excellence.
  • teach children to behave responsibly, to respect and value themselves, each other, their community and the environment.
  • develop within the children a tolerance and understanding of others regardless of academic and physical ability, religion, race or gender.
  • foster each child’s intellectual, creative, physical, spiritual, emotional, moral and social development, and in so doing lay secure foundations for lifelong learning.
