School Vision

St Mary’s Primary School is a Catholic Maintained school serving the parish of Pomeroy. We are committed to the aims of Catholic education enabling children to fulfil their potential for Christian, academic and personal development.

We have a caring school where everyone is valued and respected, and where the whole school community shares a common goal; to do the very best for all the children in our care. We encourage everyone to be part of our school. Our success depends on co-operation between pupils, staff, parents, Governors and the wider parish community.

Together, inspired by our faith in Christ, we will provide a happy secure and stimulating learning environment where all our children will achieve their full potential and will be well equipped to meet the challenges and opportunities of later life.
