PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION

Our philosophy of education is based on the idea that children are the centre of the learning process and they can and will enjoy learning given the right conditions.

The governors and staff wish to ensure that the school provides a secure, happy, caring atmosphere, a lively, stimulating environment and a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum. The children will then be able to develop their full potential through challenging learning activities matched to stages of development and individual needs.

The education provided at St. Mary's aims to make an important contribution to the children's academic, spiritual, moral, cultural, social and physical development.

Each area of the curriculum is carefully planned according to the National Curriculum. Teachers have high expectations of the children. Children's work is regularly assessed and monitored in order to raise standards.

Ofsted said:

"The schoolís Mission Statement stresses Christís centrality and the fulfilment of potential. Celebration of the individual is recognised as fundamental. The essence of the Mission Statement pervades the whole curriculum."
"Good provision is made for pupilsí spiritual, moral , social and cultural development."
"The school succeeds in its aim to aid pupils on their spiritual journey."
"The ideals of equality are fundamental to the school ethos which promotes awareness of a multi-cultural society and celebration of the individual."
