Our Values and Ethos
Our core Christian values have been chosen to reflect our view of the trinity and our wishes for our community. They come from the principles of life that Jesus taught us and are found in God’s words in the Bible. Love, peace and hope underpin daily school life. Through living our core Christian values we aim to be not only a good school but a good church school.
Our values underpin our faith and our everyday lives.
Links to the Trinity:
God as the Father gives us unconditional love
God as the Son bringing the gift of peace to the world
God as the Holy Spirit gives us hope, a firm assurance that God will always be there for us.
Links to Community:
Love – being nurtured and celebrating differences
Peace – Working and playing together in harmony and respecting our differences
Hope – Aspirations for our future and the future of our community
In reflecting the Church of England’s original purpose, St Mary’s aims to provide both a quality academic grounding and sound moral character, equipping children on their first step to success.
As a church school we are committed to providing an education to all in our community, regardless of faith. Through our Christian values of love, peace and hope, we grow together in our faith and aspirations in order to live life in all its fullness.
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
