St. Mary’s Primary School is committed to caring for each student's emotional and pastoral needs. To do this, we have adopted a Whole School Approach to Positive Behaviour and provide support such as Seasons for Growth and education on resilience, respect and safety.

At St Mary’s we are committed to:

  • Our faith community, fostering an environment where all teachers and students reach their potential
  • Strong leadership which empowers every teacher to lead in learning and teaching
  • Achieving a high level of student engagement
  • Developing expert teachers to ensure students achieve targeted progress
  • Building capacity of all teaching staff ensuring a culture of sharing and mutual support

Our philosophy is enacted through our teaching and care for students.  Our philosophy guides our teaching, strategic plans and governance decisions.
