St Mary's Roman Catholic Primary School



Welcome to our much loved and valued Catholic Primary School.  St Mary's is a Voluntary Aided co-educational Primary School which is part of the St John the Baptist Multi Academy Trust. Our school is enriched by close links with St Mary and St Peter Primary School in Gorleston, our other Catholic schools within the MAT and our local and global communities.

Our community promotes high standards of teaching, learning and behaviour and we believe that a strong partnership is essential between school and each child’s family to enable children to learn, grow and reach their full potential.

Our Mission Statement

As God’s family we nurture and inspire our children by broadening their horizons as they learn. Through rich and varied experiences, we enable them to be a loving and caring influence on our world.
