Church and Community

Our School, Our Church, Our Community, Our Character


We are very proud to be part of the St Mary of Charity Church Community. We value the partnership between Church and School in providing ministry and service to all members of the community. Rev. Simon Rowlands sits on our Governing Body and shape the Christian Ethos and Strategic Direction of our school.

                                                                                     Our School Christian Vision 


                                              “Feed my lambs….take care of my sheep.” John: 21 


We are a family where everyone feels that they belong. A place of stability where through an innovative, creative curriculum, limitless aspiration and God’s love for us, learning flourishes for all.  

In “Breakfast by Galilee” John: 21, Jesus teaches us how to have faith in times of change. He prepares his disciples to live in a changing world after his resurrection, just as we must be resilient to thrive in a future that is unknown to us. Everyone at St Mary of Charity will have the belief that they can be successful when challenged and that by working together and taking action, just as the disciples did under Jesus’ instruction, we can all achieve more than we thought possible.

SIAMs Inspection Report

SIAMs Success


We are very proud to have recently been given an 'Outstanding' judgement in our recent SIAMs inspection. (July 2017) On 18th October 2017, we had a visit from Bishop Trevor to celebrate this inspection. We are proud of what we have achieved so far.  

Our School Prayer

Bless our school

Let trust, respect and love live here

Trust in one another

Respect for one another

And love of life itself.

Let us remember

It takes many hands to build a school,

But it takes many hearts and minds

To make it a happy place to learn in.







Our Spiritual Gardens


We are lucky enough to have two Spiritual Gardens at our school, one in the Key Stage One Playground and one in the Key Stage Two Playground. The Key Stage One garden is themed around the Story of Creation and the Key Stage Two area is themed around the 'Discipleship' and being 'Fishers Of Men.'  The children have been trained to use them and have been using them during play times and lunch times. We feel very proud of our gardens.


Advent box thank you!

Thank you for all of your very generous donations for our advent box. We were overwhelmed by the number of gifts of toys and foods that were donated. The toys have been given to a local women’s refuge and the food has been taken to the local foodbank. We are sure that they will be very much appreciated by those receiving them. Merry Christmas! 


Christmas Church Service

On Wednesday 21st December 2016 at 1:30pm we went to Church for our Christmas Service. We all made Christingles and we lit the candles whilst we sang Once in Royal David’s City. Thank you to everyone that attended, it was a wonderful end to the Term.
