Home School Agreement

Our Mission

As a Catholic School we believe we are all children of Christ, a unique gift from God, and together we create a loving Christian community underpinned by common Gospel values.


  • Educate all children so they reach their full potential through a memorable and exciting curriculum that challenges and inspires them.
  • Have high expectations for learning and attitudes so that we all strive for excellence in everything we do.
  • Nurture spiritual and moral development so that we all act out the Christ in ourselves and see the Christ in others and develop a deep and confident relationship with God.
  • Empower children to become independent learners and thinkers so that they will make a difference.

We will do this as one family valuing the vital contribution of the school, home and parish in ensuring that our children receive the high standard of education they deserve in a happy, safe and nurturing environment.

Our Mission can be summarised as:

Through the love of Christ we

Inspire - Challenge - Empower

As a parent/guardian I understand that I am responsible for disciplining my children or those under my care when they are not in school. I fully understand and am aware that the use of physical force in disciplining them may be illegal in certain circumstances. This may include when an implement has been used, where the use of force has resulted in an injury and the use of prolonged stress positions. (This is where children are placed in a position of discomfort for a long period of time). I understand that in these circumstances the school has a statutory duty to report such incident to Children’s Social Care and that the police may be asked to investigate.
