Mission and Vision Statement

God is at the centre of our Catholic School

This means that:

  • Each person is recognised and valued as an individual.
  • Each child is encouraged to progress to the best of their ability.
  • We provide a welcoming, supportive and purposeful atmosphere for learning.
  • We work together in partnership with the home, parish and the wider community, to prepare our children for life.

In accordance with the Mission Statement, the aim of St Mary's school is to develop the whole child within the premise of the following rules of Jesus.

"Do for others what you want them to do for you".
Matt 7.12

"Love one another. As I have loved you, love one another".
John 1


  • Our vision is for life long 'learning' to be at the heart of St Mary's Catholic Junior School.
  • A school where there are high expectations and a striving for excellence in all that we do.
  • A community where every child, member of staff, parent, governor and visitor is treated with respect and valued as a unique individual in the image of Christ.
  • A place, which maintains a high level of creativity, enquiry and challenge with a sense of adventure and enjoyment.
