Our Aims


At St Mary’s CE Combined School we aim to be a place where:


  • Children learn in a happy and safe environment in which they develop their knowledge and understanding, thinking skills, self-confidence, resilience and social and emotional skills.

  • Children’s desire to learn is nurtured through rich and enjoyable learning experiences.

  • Children are given the skills to become lifelong learners.

  • Questions and mistakes are central to learning and everyone is encouraged to develop a range of learning powers.

  • Children develop an understanding of the Christian faith as well as respect for other faiths and cultures in an environment where differences are celebrated.

  • Children learn to understand the world in which they live and the positive role they can play in school, the local community and society in general.

  • Children, staff, parents and governors have high expectations of each other and themselves. Opportunities are provided for everyone to contribute actively and become involved in the school’s future direction and development.
