St Mary’s staff team and governors strive to ensure that the religious dimension of the school permeates all aspects of school life. The curriculum is intended to promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, academic, emotional and physical development of the children at our school. It must prepare children for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life in the twenty-first century. We are driven by our Mission Statement:
"Learning for Life, with Christ as Our Light!”
The school recognises the fact that parents are the first and main educators in faith. Our school curriculum enables our pupils to grow intellectually and spiritually rooted in a religious understanding of life based on gospel values. Religious education is an important part of the curriculum for every pupil.
Throughout the year, all pupils get the opportunity to plan and deliver collective worship in their classes. We start this in Reception, where pupils see modelled sessions and start to develop their skills to lead worship.
In every classroom here at St. Mary's children have their own interactive prayer area. These reflect the liturgical season. Children have opportunities to develop their faith through prayer and reflection.
Throughout the year we invite families into our assemblies which are led by pupils. Regular class assemblies take place from Reception to Year 2. Here children plan and deliver the word of God through exciting ways such as drama, music, hymn, poetry and more!
