Student Wellbeing

At St Mary’s everyone is treated with respect.

Every person has the right to feel safe and secure and students need an environment that supports their learning, personal growth and positive self-esteem.

Successful learning is, to a large extent, dependent on the quality of the learning environment and it is the human relationships in the school that most impact on the quality of this environment.
