Our School Vision

Our school vision underpins everything we do at Collaton St. Mary 

Achieving and Flourishing in our Christian Community

It is at the core of everything we do and we encourage our pupils to be the best version of themselves. 

As a Church of England school, we work together to develop the character of our pupils so they can achieve and flourish. We explore 5 ‘Character Gateways’ throughout the year where pupils engender it in their actions and exemplify it in their learning journals.

Our character gateways are underpinned by biblical theology. These stories are pivotal in supporting our pupils understanding of our vision and are explored in depth during Acts of Worship and day- today learning. 


Our 5 Character Gateways consist of:

Citizenship  •  Leadership  •  Explorers  •  Expression  •  Flourishing
