Our vision statement
Growing in God’s Grace
Through our Christian ethos, we teach children to hear, understand and live the word of God, helping them to give back to the world as global citizens. As every child is uniquely created in God’s image, we nurture their individual development through a holistic approach to all aspects of life.
The vision of St Mary’s is grounded in the Parable of the Sower. Through a thorough Christian foundation, we aim to transform children’s minds into “good soil” ready to hear and act upon the word of God. Through collective and personal prayer, children are taught how to communicate with God in both good and difficult times. Through teaching and lived example, children learn to look to the Gospels for inspiration and develop a secure understanding of what it means to hope, persist, forgive and be forgiven.
We acknowledge that every member of our school community is unique, with their own particular interests, strengths and weaknesses. However, through listening to God, everyone at St Mary’s seeks to grow in His grace, becoming more open to His love and giving back to the world many times over. We aim to provide a stimulating curriculum with an environmental focus that will prepare our children both intellectually and spiritually for the challenges of the 21st century.
