St Mary Magdalen's

St Mary Magdalen's Catholic Primary School

Ethos and Values

There is much to celebrate at St Mary Magdalen’s.

Our school is a welcoming, happy school where everyone is helpful, considerate and respectful of each other. Our Catholic Faith is at the heart of everything we do and our Gospel values form the basis of our ethos and the way we reach out to our inclusive St Mary Magdalen’s family.

We are a learning family and work hard to ensure that our children understand the value of growing and learning together. We value each child as an individual and work closely with parents to foster faith, love, care, independence, versatility, persistence, curiosity, creativity, and confidence.

Our vision is for everyone to have a thirst for learning within a high quality, caring, inclusive school built on Catholic values. We cultivate an environment where children show respect and kindness to one another and the world around them. Furthermore, they are prepared for the ever changing world, equipped with all the skills they need to continue on their future learning journey.

We work in partnership with parents and carers and very much value the support and contribution they make to school life. The school also enjoys a close partnership with St Mary Magdalen's Parish. Because home, school and parish work together, we are able to provide a happy, caring and effective learning environment, where expectations and standards are high. We have carefully designed our curriculum to develop thinking skills, creativity and spirituality, encouraging confidence and opportunities for children to be excited about learning and challenged to achieve their very best.

We look forward to watching your children grow in confidence, knowledge and spirituality.
