Catholic Life & Values

Catholic Life of the School

St Mary Immaculate is a Catholic School, which makes this a very special place to be, and we welcome children from other faiths. As a Catholic school, our faith flows through every aspect of our school life and in the way the whole community treats and respects one another. The Catholic life of the school is rich in opportunities for children to encounter God and to deepen their relationship with Him as a loving, compassionate Father.


The Christian values at the heart of our Catholic faith incorporate British values and in everything we do, we aim to further each child's sense of commitment and responsibility to themselves, to others and in the wider world. 


Prayer and worship

Prayer and worship are central to the daily life of our school. We aim to provide opportunities for children's spiritual growth and development through participation in a variety of forms of worship and through experiencing all forms of prayer: formal, informal, spontaneous, private, shared, petitionary and meditative.


Pupils are actively involved in planning and leading worship, both in class groups and whole school settings. Shared acts of worship take place in an atmosphere of reflection and stillness, where we encourage each other to listen to God speaking to us, and to respond.  


The school as a Catholic Community

All staff are aware that the school's foundations are built on the Catholic faith and beliefs. They receive regular training as part of their continuous professional development. Staff pray and work together to support each other in providing the very best education possible for the pupils. Learning in RE is at the core of the curriculum and we ensure that the Bishop's directive is followed in allocating 10% of curriculum time to RE lessons. The Governing Body, led by the Co-Chairs and the Governor responsible for RE, provide outstanding support and commitment to the Catholic Life of the school. Parents are welcomed to assemblies, Masses and other liturgies throughout the year.
