‘Saintt Mary’s Catholic Primary School has a strong
Catholic identity. Pupils are proud of the
Catholicity of their school. The school is valued
by the parish and the wider community.’ DCI Report 2015
“All people by virtue of their dignity as human persons have the right to education, that is the right to achieve their potential in life. Those who are baptised members of the Church have a right to a Christian education.” (cf. Gravissimum Educationis 1, 2).
Catholic schools, as part of the mission of the Church, are challenged by the Gospel to affirm their pupils’ basic goodness, to promote their dignity and to develop their gifts to the full. Schools are challenged to educate people to live responsibly for the fullness of life that God wills for each of us.
