Learning & Teaching

At St Mary’s Primary School we believe that the school and home, work in partnership to create the best outcomes for students.

 

Teachers see themselves as lifelong learners, committed to their ongoing training, learning and development so that they can best meet the needs of the students in their care.

At St Mary’s Primary School we believe that the learning environment needs to promote enthusiasm and enjoyment of learning that will be sustained throughout their lives.

  • Our students are actively supported in their development as members of a school, parish and global community

  • We believe that our expectations need to be realistic but high

  • Our students are guided towards being reflective and responsible learners

  • We believe that the learning environment needs to be motivating and challenging

At St Mary’s Primary School we believe that children learn best when:

  • there is a child-centred learning environment which is supportive and caring,

  • students feel valued, as individuals, by their teachers and their peers

  • students are comfortable with taking risks, and understand that making mistakes is a part of the learning process

  • students are optimistic about themselves as learners
