Inspire Believe Achieve
At Weston St Mary CE Primary school, we endeavour to serve our community and the common good by providing our children with the highest standard of education, within a Christian context. We celebrate diversity and demonstrate inclusivity. Inspired by the parable of the Good Samaritan, in which the Samaritan helps the Jewish traveller despite the differences between their people, we believe that we are all the children of God and that each member of our community deserves equality of opportunity and achievement.
Within a Christian ethos we aim to:
We are a school that prides itself on our Christian values and aims to ensure all of our pupils feel happy, secure and valued, enabling them to make a worthwhile contribution as young people within their community.
Our school provides a gateway for children to discover, explore and learn in a caring environment. Childhood is a magical, wonderful time and our pupils follow a varied and active programme designed to give them the opportunity to build confidence and learn everything they will need for their future.
SMSC stands for spiritual, moral, social and cultural. All schools in England must show how well their pupils develop in SMSC. We hope that this page clearly identifies how we do this within our school, community and families and how we meet some of the required outcomes.
As a Church School, Collective worship is an important part of our school day. Collective worship takes place every day. During Collective Worship, we light a candle to both symbolise Jesus (as light of the world) and also as a visible sign of worship has ended. This can also be done when worship takes place in classrooms.
Children may be withdrawn from RE /collective worship for religious reasons at the wish of their parents/ carers. The Executive Head Teacher/Head of School will ensure that suitable provision is made for such pupils.
