Guided by faith, nurtured through love, inspired to achieve.
As witnesses to Jesus and enriched by the Holy Spirit, St Mary's Catholic Primary School is a respectful, caring and embracing family. We celebrate and share our Catholic faith together, recognising the uniqueness and potential of all. The values and learning that are nurtured in our school enable achievement in education and beyond.

British Values


British Values is now a compulsory part of a school's curriculum . As a staff we have endeavoured to make it integral to our school life and not to be seen a 'bolt-on'. As such we have looked at elements of our teaching and what we do that already promote British Values.


The following diagram shows how the values are encompassed by our view of education based on the teachings of Pope Francis, the Church and the National Curriculum and our desire to have children who leave this school who are assets to their communities.
