We want every child to understand and to promote the shared values of our foundation, including the British values of  - democracythe rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs. This ensures young people understand the importance of respect and leave school fully prepared for life in the modern world .

Advice from a Gold Rights Respecting Headteacher


"Children’s participation is a significant feature of St. Mary’s and it is widely understood as their right. Conversations during the visit conveyed a strong sense of collaboration across the school; all adults value and respect the children’s views as being as valid as those of a colleague or parent. The democratically elected school council (UNICEF team) meets regularly and representatives take the views of their peers to the meetings; “We take decisions about our life and learning in school.”

"The school has also established itself as an ambassador for children’s rights by offering support to other schools on their RRS journey, as one parent explained “It is so impressive to see the children presenting to other schools.”

"A long established and much valued annual event is the Children’s Commissioner’s ‘Takeover Day’ about which both adults and children speak with great enthusiasm. The reality is, however, that, to a very great extent, the rights based culture at St Mary’s CE Primary school means that every day is takeover day!"
