As a church school, St Mary and St Chad CE First School has a Christian ethos, reflected in its aims and objectives for every child and adult working within the school. All aspects of the school’s daily routine are planned with these aims in mind. Daily morning worship is held, and provide an important means of reinforcing the Christian values of the school. Close links are also enjoyed with local churches where the school’s progress is followed with interest by the Church members. The children visit
St Mary and St Chad Church for services during the year.
The aims of the school go beyond the undoubted importance of high academic achievement within the child’s capabilities, and job satisfaction of each adult. Children and adults alike are encouraged to value, respect and care for each person as an individual and the contribution that they make to the life of the school.
Our Vision is
Hand and hand we work together to provide a happy, nurturing and safe environment where every child is inspired to love learning, flourish and reach their God given potential.
This is promoted through our motto and logo

To support this vision and motto we have the bible reading –
“Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” Isaiah 40:31
Our school values are
Friendship, thankfulness, courage, respect, peace and hope
