Curriculum design and coverage

We are committed to making St Mary & St John an inclusive environment, fostering curiosity, spirituality, creativity and respect. At our school we want everyone to be valued, to explore the joy of learning, and to achieve their full potential. Children at St Mary and St John celebrate the richness of diversity within our school community. They are confident, empathetic, and resilient, able to take measured risks with a sense of self-belief. We strive to empower the children at school, motivating them in an environment where they feel valued and understand the power of being inquisitive. When they leave us, they will be enthusiastic life-long learners who are ambitious, courageous and able to build positive, healthy relationships.
