The school’s Mission Statement:
To work in partnership with parents, carers, the parish and the local community to secure the fullest educational, emotional, physical and social wellbeing of all our learners, reflecting gospel values, our freedom and responsibilities as Christians and the love God has for each one of us
For a Catholic school [the mission statement] “will always be centred on Christ, reflect a Christian understanding of the purpose of education, and make explicit the Christian values and principles by which the school operates. The review and development of the mission statement provide the opportunity to focus on the distinctive identity and character of the school as a Catholic educational community. It should be a point of reference for all aspects of evaluation.”
