Welcome to St Mary of the Angels Catholic Primary School
We love our school and we’re so proud of who we are. We hope that through our website you’ll be able to have an insight into what makes St Mary’s such a special school family.
Our mission is to nurture our children, through an excellent education, to grow into the fullness of their God-given potential. At St Mary’s, we truly live out our Mission Statement: Love Jesus, Love Learning, Love Life. Our core values of love, mercy, dignity, compassion, forgiveness, truth and justice, reflect our identity as a Catholic community, both within and beyond the classroom, inspired by the teachings of Jesus.
We cherish every one of our children.
We strive for academic excellence, rooted in the personal and spiritual growth of each individual, to ensure that every child has a happy and successful time at St Mary’s.
Our dedicated and wonderful team of teaching and support staff set high expectations. They work hard to provide a challenging curriculum, within and beyond the classroom, that engages all pupils, stimulating their interests and joy of learning.
This website only captures a brief insight into life at St. Mary of the Angels, so I warmly invite you to come and meet us for yourself; everyone is welcome in our school.
