Welcome

St Mary’s is a delightful school set in the heart of Slough town centre at the end of the high street. Currently we have approximately 523 pupils on role but this number will grow by 30 (at least) in September 2014 when we become a three-form entry school.

 

St Mary’s is a Church of England Voluntary Controlled school but was set up to serve the needs of its local community whatever their culture, faith or religion; this makes St Mary’s a unique school as its largest population is Muslim. We accept all children here and believe that by working towards one goal under one roof helps us all to be better citizens, accepting of all, no matter where they are from, their abilities, their gender or their beliefs. The school values its working relationship with parents to enable children to do their very best.

 

At St Mary’s we all strive towards delivering and achieving an excellent standard of education for all children; this is underpinned by our core values of Love, Forgiveness, Responsibility, Honesty and Respect which permeate the school at every level. As a UNICEF Level 2 Rights Respecting School we also think carefully about incorporating the 42 Articles outlining the rights of children into our work. The school also holds the Eco-Schools’ Green Flag Award for its excellent contribution to building a sustainable world for our children to live in.

 

I have only been at St Mary’s for one term but love the genuine warmth of the staff and the polite, well-articulated children who are quick to say a smiley ‘Good morning, how are you today?’ and then to hold open doors for adults to pass through. St Mary’s is a school that lives and breathes its core values, a school to which you are most welcome and to which you must consider a visit.

 

We very much look forward to welcoming you.

Our Core Christian Values

Love,

Forgiveness, Responsibility,

Honesty and Respect.

 

Our value for October is Co-operation.

14 Our bodies don’t have just one part. They have many parts...17 If our bodies were only an eye, we couldn’t hear a thing. And if they were only an ear, we couldn’t smell a thing.18 But God has put all parts of our body together in the way that he decided is best...25 He did this to make all parts of the body work together smoothly, with each part caring about the others.

 

1 Corinthians 12 verses 14-31 (New Testament )
