‘St Mary’s the Caring School’ is central to everything we do. We embrace every opportunity to support each individual’s wellbeing through emotional and social literacy, healthy living and eating and understanding our role as citizens. We follow the PATHS (Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies) programme http://www.pathseducation.co.uk/ which is designed to facilitate the development of self-control, emotional awareness and interpersonal problem-solving skills. Our world so often struggles to live in peace and harmony; we value every opportunity to learn how to live with love, not hate, in our hearts and actions. We hold the Healthy School Bronze Award.
