Our Christian ethos
Everyone is welcome at St Mary’s School. It is a small, inclusive Church of England school for children of all faiths and none.
Our Christian ethos is very important to us. It shapes and informs everything that happens, and Christian values underpin each day. Christian values include compassion, justice, reverence and thankfulness.
Parents from many different faiths have chosen Church of England schools, including St Mary’s, for their children because religious belief is taken seriously, they support a moral framework, and there are many opportunities for spiritual development alongside excellent academic, emotional, social and physical development.
Through thought-provoking Collective Worship children at St Mary’s School have opportunities to reflect upon and develop their own beliefs and self-identity, whilst developing a respectful understanding of the beliefs of others.
