Our school aims to develop those values which Catholics believe reflect the gospel of Jesus Christ and the teachings of the Church. The basic religious ethos is to be found across the whole curriculum and is reflected in all areas of the life of the school.
Christian values permeate each area of experience and learning; in this way we endeavour to promote the formation of the whole person. The overriding aim of the school therefore is the Christian growth of the children, not simply their growth in their own faith, but their growing awareness of the world as a maturing and worshipping Christian.
In order to create an atmosphere which enables true Christianity to grow, we aim:
- To provide a caring, happy environment in which all pupils develop self-confidence and self-respect.
- To provide an environment in which all children can make a worthwhile contribution, where everyone is valued and everyone’s needs are respected as important.
- To help the children realise that the school is a praying community, by highlighting the uses of prayer as thanksgiving to God in times of need, both personal and communal.
- To emphasise the Christian ideal of service, by giving the children the opportunity to help people in need, both locally and universally.
