Gomersal St Mary's CE Primary School


At Gomersal St. Mary’s Primary school, all that we do is driven by our distinctive Christian character and our vision, ‘By being the best that we can be, we all shine brightly, making our world and school a better place’.

Therefore, our curriculum promotes positive relationships, based on mutual trust and respect and these are at the heart of everything we do. It exposes our children to enriching experiences, immersing them in progressive knowledge and skills, equipping them with personal characteristics required to succeed in life. Our mission is to support all our pupils to reach their fullest potential, academically, personally, socially and spiritually.

The key principles behind the design of our curriculum are for our children to:

  • learn the value of love, forgiveness, friendship, resilience and respect
  • be confident, independent and resilient; displaying a thirst for learning
  • be kind, showing empathy and compassion whilst valuing diversity
  • be culturally knowledgeable about our country and our world
  • have aspirations for the future and know that these can be reached through hard work and determination
  • be well prepared for the challenges of the secondary school curriculum.

Through an imaginative, carefully crafted curriculum, pupils become sensitive to the needs of the local and global community and act as courageous advocates for individuals, communities and the environment. Visits and visitors broaden their horizons so that pupils are encouraged and challenged to be the best that they can be (SIAMS June 2022).
