School Vision and Values

Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.

Mission Statement

Our School Motto is:


St. Mary’s Catholic Primary School, Studley is a place where the Spirit of Christ lives. It is a school where all children are welcomed and each one nurtured in a union of support between school and parish so each may reach their full potential. We celebrate the uniqueness of the individual and believe each child is created in the image and likeness of God and has a spiritual destiny to fulfil.

In our school we aim:
  • To engender a genuine love and understanding of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

  • To foster a true understanding of the Catholic Faith in order to help children know God and themselves more clearly.

  • To ensure that every aspect of school life is rooted in the Gospel values of peace, truth, holiness, justice, love, faithfulness, integrity and forgiveness.

  • To foster a spirit of charity, respectfulness and caring for others.

  • To develop good and long-lasting relationships which are based on mutual understanding and respect for one another.

  • To deliver a well-rounded education which inspires and makes children aware of their own abilities encouraging them to be evaluative and to use their God given talents in order that they may live full, interesting and purposeful lives.

  • To help children learn how to learn; to work with concentration and perseverance, independently and in co-operation with others.

  • To encourage an awareness of and respect for all races and beliefs in our world.
