Diocesan inspection report said:
'Pupils’ response to the present school prayer opportunities is outstanding, in terms of willingness to participate and a real sense of engagement in the life of the Spirit regardless of faith background or none.'
At St. Mary's, prayer is an integral part of school life. We appreciate that prayer empowers us to serve God through showing care and compassion towards others. Our children are taught traditional Catholic prayers in each year group. These prayers can be used at home to support parents in developing their children's knowledge of prayer and to continue to develop their children's understanding of what the words mean to us as Christians today. With the development of knowledge and understanding, comes an increased desire to live out the words of our Holy Father Pope Francis.
