The school motto ‘Sharing, caring, learning and loving with God’ runs through everything in our school. There is a very strong ethos at St Mary’s where all children are made to feel special and cared for. SMSC runs through all elements of school life and will feature in all lessons in some way. We feel it is our duty to ensure our children grow up with a good understanding of morals, respect other people’s views and values and understand the need for rules in our everyday life. Turn taking, sharing and listening to each other are all vital skills in a child’s development.
