“Learning, Caring and Sharing Together”


"The quality of pastoral care in the school is very good.  There is a welcoming ethos and the staff display high levels of commitment to the care and wellbeing of the children."

ETI Inspection 2012


In St. Mary's pastoral care permeates all aspects of school life.  It reflect the values, attitudes, beliefs and practices of our Catholic faith and involves all members of our school community.  We have an atmosphere where everyone in the school community feels valued.  We work as a team respecting each other's roles and recognising individual talents and expertise.


"The school has very good arrangements in place for safeguarding children.  These arrangements reflect the guidance given by the Department of Education." ETI Inspection 2012


The welfare of each child is our paramount consideration.  The Board of Governors of St. Mary's have a Safeguarding Team who closely monitor all aspects of Child Protection within the school.
