    Our mission is to make school a calm but exciting place to be, where children feel safe and special and where the goodness of Jesus Christ is shown by example. This is embodied in our motto, “Be the best I can be”, children and staff are encouraged to:

    • Be encouraged to do their best
    • Want to learn and enjoy all school activities
    • Be confident enough to make choices
    • Be proud of what they do

  • Teaching & Learning

    At St. Mary Magdalene School our purpose is to create a happy, positive working environment which engages and motivates children through the delivery of a creative curriculum. Staff and children feel valued, supported and appreciated and by focusing on the development of the ‘whole child’ we are equipping children with the tools to become lifelong learners.
