School Vision

 

 

At St. Catherine’s, we live, learn and grow in God's love. 

 

We care and respect each other. We are all special and God loves us.

 

We are a caring community which aims to promote respect and understanding of all Individuals through a sharing of Catholic Faith and the love of Christ. All children will feel a sense of worth, knowing that they are valued and loved by God in their uniqueness.

We seek to create a learning environment which enables our children to succeed to their best ability and which recognises and values their variety of talents.

We acknowledge the importance of our role in support for the family, the parish and the wider community.

Promoting School Values and Children's Rights

We have been talking a great deal in school about how we can  further our links with British and School Values.  With support of pupils and staff we continue to focus on  a  value for each month. Pupils and staff include this key value  in a range of areas  across the school day i.e., through prayer, class based worship; assemblies; RE lessons; PSHE sessions. Alongside the value, we will focus on specific articles of the Childs Rights  Convention. This gives  all staff, pupils and parents the opportunity to talk to each other about key areas that impact on all  children, not just here, but globally.
