Our Mission

"We come to a Roman Catholic School and so believe that Jesus was born, died and rose again for everyone.  We aim to help, encourage and show God's way to our families, making sure that our Catholic traditions and faith are kept alive. Each year at school, we learn a little bit more about our faith so that we can all grow to love God and each other more."

 

 

MISSION INTO PRACTICE

To help focus our minds on how to achieve our Mission Statement, we have separated it into three different areas; Family, Faith and Relationships.

 

We aim to support and guide our families

 

  • We invite all who come through our doors to experience the warmth and love of God.
  • We invite family members to participate in acts of collective worship, recognising the importance of their help throughout our journey in faith.
  • School helps our families through Caritas and we know who we can turn to when we need help and guidance.
  • School provides opportunities for our parents to get involved in our learning through parents’ meetings, school trips and homework.
  • We support our local community as well those who are less fortunate in other countries.
  • As Buddies we are role models to the younger children, ensuring that they are following the Gospel Values.

 

We aim to keep our Catholic traditions and faith alive

 

  • When we celebrate the Sacraments we are supported by the teachers, our catechists, family, clergy, the Presentation Sisters and parish.
  • We celebrate Mass each week. We mark special occasions such as feast days.
  • On a Friday we eat fish to show reverence to Our Lord.
  • We create and reflect upon prayer, participating in the liturgy, celebrating and learning through assemblies, Masses and Prayer and Worship.
  • As Chaplains we provide a quiet and reflective environment for the other children to use.

 

We aim to grow in knowledge, love of God and each other

 

  • We have a mutual respect for each other and appreciate the contribution each individual makes to the life of the school.
  • Our learning is enhanced by the effective planning and preparation of the new curriculum which values our contribution and achievements.
  • When we respond to our teachers’ marking, we reflect upon and evaluate our work so that we can extend our understanding.
  • As a whole school community, we come together to celebrate our achievements and our application of our learning. 
  • Through our Gospel Values, we forgive, forget and move on.
  • By understanding the Rule of Law, we establish a high standard of morals and recognise our rights and responsibilities as pupils.
  • Calm, quiet and concentrated atmospheres are created by establishing positive relationships with adults who work in our school.
  • We strengthen our knowledge and love of each other by welcoming children with alternative faiths.
