School Ethos And Values

We value every child as an individual, and take every opportunity to encourage and
support their continued spiritual, physical, moral, social; and intellectual growth and
development. Our faith and our principles are soundly based on the Christian teaching of
the Catholic Church, which holds love of God and of each other as the central precept of
all our values.

We seek to help each child to develop knowledge, understanding, experience and skills as
fully as possible through a broad, balanced range of opportunities and activities.
We are most conscious of the child’s emotional and aesthetic development, and seek to
encourage sensitivity, awareness, care and appreciation as positive and prominent values.
We strive to encourage lively, enquiring minds, the ability to question and debate
rationally, and the self-motivation needed to enable a child to approach a task with
purpose, confidence and commitment.

It is our aim to help the children develop a sense of respect for themselves, for other
children and adults, and for their environment, enabling them to live as independent adults,
with a set of values, attitudes, concepts and beliefs which will help them make a valuable
contribution to society.
