  • Living the Mission Statement through our Caring Code and providing equality of opportunity.
  • Providing a Catholic Christian setting in which children can become confident, resourceful, enquiring and independent learners.
  • Fostering a growth of commitment to the love and service of Christ through the teaching and practices of the Catholic Church.
  • To ensure all children attending the school follow an appropriate code of behaviour
  • To help our children respect other people’s religions and develop their understanding of other cultures
  • To enable our children to receive a broad and balanced curriculum whilst ensuring progress is made in the basic skills
  • To prepare our children to meet all kinds of situations by developing self-esteem, confidence and independence
