Our School Mission Statement, Core Values and School Aims
At St Mary and St Michael School our mission statement is, ‘Learning together hand in hand with our friend Jesus.’ Our faith is at the heart of everything that we do.
At the heart of Catholic education in St Mary and St Michael lies the Christian vision of the human person. Religious education is never simply one subject among many, but the foundation of our entire educational process. The beliefs and values studied in Catholic religious education inspire and draw together every aspect of the life of our school.
As a Catholic school, we aim to provide the best possible education for your child, where the teachings of Christ inform all our efforts and the way we treat each other. We provide an orderly, safe environment in which effort and personal success are rewarded, special gifts are catered for and individual needs are met.
St. Mary & St Michael Catholic Primary School aims are:
- To have a broad and balanced curriculum which is innovative, creative and relevant; that develops the progression of skills, knowledge and practical abilities that will enable our pupils to become confident, independent life-long learners.
- To help pupils appreciate all forms of human achievement.
- To help pupils understand the world in which they live and to recognise the inter-dependence of individuals, groups and nations.
- To be responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society, whilst holding on to their Christian values and duty to care for all in God’s world.
