British Values

St Mary’s Catholic Primary School serves a diverse, open and accepting community.  Whilst the majority of pupils are baptised Catholics, our intake includes children from other cultures and Christian Churches as well as other faith backgrounds and also those with no faith commitment.

As a Catholic school, everyone at St Mary’s is fully committed to the values espoused within the Gospels. As modern British values have evolved from a time when we were historically Christian, our Gospel values and British values link together well.

Through the teaching of our curriculum, we believe in and promote core British values as defined by the government: Democracy, The Rule of Law, Individual Liberty, Mutual Respect and Tolerance of Different Faiths and Beliefs alongside and as part of the Gospel values including: joy, truth, faith, hope, love, justice, peace, community, solidarity, compassion, prayer and dignity.

St Mary’s promotes the 'Prevent' agenda to all stakeholders. Prevent forms part of our culture of safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of all of our children.
