Mission and Ethos

Our school is very welcoming and inclusive and we pride ourselves in the way in which we  nurture our children, lead them by example and teach them through the gospel values; which we hope will encourage them to be disciples of Jesus. This is reinforced in our mission statement:

‘Christ’s light shines through our learning’

To do this we will:

    • Be a Christian community that follows Jesus in living out Gospel values; ‘Christ’ (Christ centred)
    • Be a beacon of light that shines out to others, sharing faith, hope and love; ‘Shines’ (Community)
    • Provide opportunities for all to grow and achieve by igniting a desire for life long learning; ‘Learning’ (Education)
