At St Mary's Primary Academy we work together to create excellence within a democratic British society. We encourage children to achieve their full potential in terms of academic attainment and personal, spiritual and moral development. We aim to achieve this within a Christian ethos, which encourages respect for and understanding of different faiths and cultures.

Following our recent Ofsted inspection (July 2012) inspectors reported that:
- "This is an outstanding school. Exceptionally effective teaching and a highly inclusive and stunningly creative learning environment enable the pupils to reach the highest levels of enjoyment and achievement."
- "Pupil's behaviour and attitudes to learning are exemplary. A climate of mutual respect permeates the school. This is evident in pupil's excellent work ethic within lessons, where they contribute remarkably well to their learning and that of others."
- "The head teacher is an inspirational leader. She ensures that the partnership with another local school is mutually beneficial. The management of teaching is excellent as it promotes consistency and high standards throughout the school. The highly effective curriculum delivers above-average standards in many subjects and exceptionally strong spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. There are excellent opportunities for pupils from different backgrounds to understand and celebrate their shared and diverse cultural heritages."
Our pupils are proud ambassadors of our school and one pupil summed up the views of many to the inspectors, stating
"St Mary's helps us to be the best we can be."
