Here are just some comments from the report:
It is an incredibly diverse school community; however, it quickly becomes evident that St. Mary’s is a school that is ‘never complacent’ but sees ‘learning as a never-ending aspirational journey for all stakeholders.’
One parent shared; ‘St. Mary’s is like paradise; you sense you belong as there is a unity of cultures blending together in a huge effective partnership.’
They foster a ‘strong capacity to listen, act and adapt,’ therefore they achieved this award at ‘Gold’ level.
St. Mary’s is not just a school but is a whole community, a place where ‘one stop aims to fix all.’
Parents are extremely positive of the school and many comment how the school is a ‘safe haven, my home from home,’ a place where they can come to meet other families and access advice and support at any time in the bungalow.
