Welcome to our school
Dear parents, children and all visitors,
May I welcome you on behalf of myself, the whole staff team and Governors to our school. Here at Boston St Mary's we welcome the partnership of Parish, Home and School; we work extremely hard to create a community spirit and we very much hope you will choose to become part of it.
We are noted for our distinctive caring ethos and for a nurturing and welcoming spirit which is rooted in the Gospel Values we value highly as a Catholic School.
Our vision is to be a fully inclusive school offering all who work and learn here the best possible opportunity for learning and self-development. We are incredibly proud of the diverse nature of our school and believe in giving all children, of all races and nationalities, a foundation for their dreams and opportunities worthy of their promise. The school believes in the uniqueness of each individual and our aim is to regard every pupil as gifted and talented in some way. All of the staff in the school work generously to develop the potential of each child to the full. Christ is at the centre of life here at St Mary's and this is mirrored in our curriculum which is rich, varied and inspiring. We believe enjoyment is paramount to ensuring children truly achieve their potential.
St Mary’s has an ethos of respect which is highly evident in everything we do. We want our children to really believe that they can be the best, to recognise themselves as able and talented individuals and to maximise all opportunities presented to them. We aim for them to learn how to become lifelong learners so that they will continue to make progress and develop throughout every phase of their learning.
Ultimately, our aim is for all of the pupils to grow into well-rounded, well-balanced, responsible members of society. In order to work towards achieving this we depend upon the strong partnership we have developed in the community. In particular, we value and depend upon the support of parents and the very strong links we have with St. Mary’s Parish Church.
St. Mary's is a happy and lively place where we want everyone to feel at home and comfortable. You have a crucial role in making this happen and I hope you will become fully involved in all we do.
