St Mary's C of E (Aided) Primary School, Pulborough

Our Faith

“A Christ-centred school with a child-centred curriculum”


Our Vision:

We treasure each child and enable them to flourish, using their God given potential and establishing a secure foundation for them to thrive in a rapidly changing world. We are a Christ-centred school with a child-centred curriculum where wisdom and love shape learning and teaching within our community.


Our vision is inspired by scripture:


Loving: John: 15 v12

Jesus said: “Love one another as I have loved you”.


Learning: Proverbs: 18 v15

“An intelligent mind acquires knowledge, and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.”


Living: 1 Corinthians: 13 v 4-8
“Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude.  It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth.”

New Revised Standard Version


These principles of loving, learning and living are building a community where the fruits of the spirit (Galatians: 5 v 22-23) are made real (vine leaves).

This is the vision for all members of our community - children, staff, families, volunteers and visitors. Each of us is unique and each of us has a key role to play in making our world a better place to be. Our vision results in all members of our community flourishing within their roles within and beyond school. It guides the way we approach all areas of school development and the way in which we nurture all members of our school family. 
Our school values of love and wisdom are rooted in scripture.
