St. Mary's CE Primary School is situated in a delightful village not far from the Shropshire town of Shrewsbury, UK. We are very proud or our school, it's children and staff. St. Mary's School aims to provide each individual child with an attractive, stimulating, caring learning environment, where all members of its community are valued. High standards of work and behaviour are insisted upon and achieved.
At St Mary’s we are a church school committed to the enjoyment and discipline of learning and to the spiritual, educational and social development of our children.
We do this within a framework of Christian belief and values and in an atmosphere of love, respect and encouragement.
The school’s six values: Respect, Peace, Reflection, Honesty, Kindness and Courage lead our half termly worship rota.
We teach a curriculum that is broad and interesting, with high-quality learning
experiences, and a strong balance between academic, creative and physical
earning, so everyone can achieve and do well!
We aim to impart a desire for learning, knowing that we all learn in different
ways, using our own curiosity and questioning. We want everyone in the
school, staff, parents and children, to gain the independent skills that will keep
them learning all their lives.
We encourage, support and guide children to reach their full potential in both
their strengths and in their “not-yet-strengths”, by setting challenging but
achievable targets term by term.
We help children to take responsibility for their own learning, but also for
helping one another to improve. We teach children to work as a team, to share
ideas and to learn from each other.
We aim to give children a clear understanding of the Christian faith and what it
means for them as they grow up in a community, whilst also teaching respect
and understanding for other faiths and those who hold them.
We want all our children to gain skills in understanding each other and
expressing themselves to one another. We want them to look after and
respect each other’s interests and opinions as well as their own, so we teach
them how to build friendships and resolve conflict.
We want to build compassionate, intelligent attitudes towards the world
we live in, and those who live in it, especially those who are worse off
than ourselves. We aim to teach children enjoyment of and respect for the
natural environment they live in.
We aim to develop a close, understanding relationship between school and
home, built on mutual respect, with shared responsibility for children’s wellbeing.
We encourage parents and carers to be fully involved in school life and
we aim to consult them on every issue that affects them directly.
We aim to build a safe place for our children so they can be happy and
contented, free from fear whilst with us.
We aim to settle children who join us for the first time quickly and easily,
giving them friends and helpers and working with parents to begin a happy
We want all children to have a voice to be heard, no matter how they are
feeling or what they need to share.
