Pupils at St Mary's Hare Park value and actively participate in the Catholic Life and mission of our school. The children have respect for themselves and others and know that they are made in the image and likeness of God. This is exemplified in the way that the children behave towards one another: how they speak and listen, give thanks, notice each other's kindnesses, forgive and are forgiven in turn. Our pupils want to reach out to their community and make a difference in the world beyond the community too, in small ways, and larger ways too.
Children at St Mary's Hare Park have an understanding of what it means to have a vocation or mission and they joyfully offer their gifts in the service of others. We are very fortunate to have strong and valuable links with our parish community and the children enjoy participating in parish and church celebrations and activities. Our children, from Nursery to Year 6, grow in confidence and express pride in their own religious and cultural identity and beliefs. This is shown through their full participation in the prayer services and masses in classes and with the whole school, parents, and parish community.
