Curriculum Mission

At St Mary’s Infant school our intent is to deliver a broad and balanced curriculum that will inspire, enthuse and educate our children so they learn knowledge and skills that will help them prepare for life in modern Britain. During their time with us, from Reception to Year 2, we aim to foster a love of learning, a natural curiosity and a thirst for knowledge. Good social skills and very high standards of behaviour are vital in creating happy children who are keen and active learners
