Vision & Values

St Mary's CE First School and Nursery - A welcome from our Year Four Leaders

We have reviewed our school values to ensure that they are truly aligned with the bespoke nature of our awesome curriculum here at St Mary’s. The existing values of Love, Hope and Peace are still very much underpinning the ethos of the school. However, since we adopted those three values in 2015, the school has evolved to meet the demands of revised educational frameworks, both at DfE and Church of England level. Coupled with the changes in curriculum, we feel it is time for a review and perhaps even a fresh approach.


The children, parents, Governors, Senior Leaders and the teaching team have been thinking about the most suitable values which would not only drive our ambitions for the children and their families but also to reflect the ethos and working practices of the St Mary’s family. This document has been designed and written to give substance and rationale to our school values.
