School Ethos and Values

Our shared vision is to create an outstanding world class Catholic primary school, with our faith, our families and our futures at its core. 
As a Catholic school our ethos and values are inspired by Jesus and his teaching.
Our Mission Statement:  "Together towards excellence with Christ as our Guide."
We aim to achieve this by:
  • Nurturing a love of learning

  • Educating the whole person based on the belief that the human and divine are inseparable

  • Educating all, especially those who are socially, academically, physically or emotionally disadvantaged

  • Developing positive and supportive relationships

  • Valuing prayer, worship and faith development

  • Respecting individuals

  • Working in partnership with parents, the Parish and the wider community

  • Celebrating the richness of our cultural diversity


The Aims of our school:

  • For children to enjoy school and learning in a safe environment

  • For children to develop a sense of moral responsibility and self discipline

  • To work closely with children and parents in pursuit of high standards

  • To develop children’s own strategies for learning and improving

  • To deliver a broad and enriching curriculum that reflects the needs of our children

  • To encourage all members of our school to develop their personal understanding of Christian values by daily collective worship, example and teaching

  • To further develop our close links with our local parishes and community
