At St Mary's Primary School, we believe that all children are capable of achieving wonderful things. Our school celebrates diverse and unique individuals, each possessing a range of qualities and skills. Inclusion, for us, is not about giving all children the same, but giving them what they need in order to succeed. We embrace differences and work together to enable all children to reach their full potential.


"Diversity is a fact, Equity is a choice, Inclusion is an act, Belonging is an outcome."

Arthur Chan, diversity and inclusion strategist
