St Mary’s Catholic Primary School is a vibrant, caring primary school at the heart of the local community. Our Catholic ethos and values are central to our mission of providing a broad, balanced, creative curriculum and underpin all aspects of our children’s education.
Our mission statement states ‘St. Mary’s Catholic Primary School is a caring Catholic community where every child is equal. We aim to nurture each child’s uniqueness in the Spirit of God, helping them to achieve their full potential in a safe and happy environment.’
Academic standards are above local and national averages. Sports and the arts are embedded in the curriculum. The school works closely with our parish the Immaculate Conception and Fr Desmond Sexton, our parish priest, is a regular visitor. As part of the St Bernard’s Learning Community we are committed to working with our partner schools and the Diocese of Hallam to raise standards and we aim to deliver an outstanding education to our pupils. ‘At St. Mary’s young people can grow and develop a sense of wonder about themselves and the world in which they live, so that they leave us confident, fulfilled and excited to embrace their future.’
