Section 5 -December 2021
St Mary’s is a very positive, nurturing place built on mutual respect. Pupils enjoy coming to school. Parents and carers confirm this. A comment, typical of the many received, sums it up well: ‘A very happy, secure setting in which my daughter is really thriving’.
The mission statement, ‘To be the best that we can be’, is embodied by staff. Pupils thrive because the curriculum is ambitious for all. Staff ensure pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) have the same opportunities as their peers. As a result, all pupils achieve well. Pupils behave exceptionally well. Pupils concentrate well in lessons. They said that the golden rule of ‘Kind words – great choices’ supports them to make the right decisions.
