Our Vision

We will be courageous and inspire each other to excellence, shining in the light of Christ and making a positive impact in our world.

Our Mission Statement

I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.    (John 8:12)

We will inspire each other by:

  • Living in the Roman Catholic faith; offering opportunities for prayer, worship and liturgy; creating a strong friendship between home, school, parish, diocese and the wider community.
  • Recognising and celebrating the unique and God given gifts and talents of all members of our school family.
  • Listening to and valuing each other’s contributions.
  • Celebrating diversity and respecting different beliefs, cultures and ways of life.
  • Sharing our gifts and talents with all.
  • Laughing together and developing an authentic love of learning.

We will achieve excellence by:

  • Learning with and from one another; so creating a school environment which nurtures the whole child and enables each one of us to realise their full potential.
  • Setting high expectations for our spiritual, moral, intellectual, social, emotional and physical development.
  • Providing a motivating, challenging learning experience, that encourages a life long desire to learn.
  • Promoting the highest standard of teaching which engages all learners.
  • Challenging everyone to become independent learners with enquiring minds and positive attitudes, determination and resilience.
  • Nurturing a strong learning partnership between home, school, parish and our wider communities.

We will shine in the light of Christ by:                        

  • Loving one another; valuing all members of the school community -pupils, parents, governors, teaching and support staff; showing respect, kindness and consideration to all.
  • Following in the footsteps of Christ, in all that we think, say and do, so that our lives are a living witness to the Gospel and walking authentically in our faith journey.
  • Praying and worshiping together, enriching our relationship with God.
  • Ensuring that compassion and forgiveness are strong, forever present in all that we do.
  • Growing in our awareness of God’s unchanging love for each of us.
