Our Mission Statement

As a Catholic school and community, we share a common vision where Christ is at the centre of all our work and play.  Our school ethos embodies principles of love, service, respect and reconciliation. We endeavour to recognise the dignity of each member of our school community and to nurture, encourage and challenge our pupils to be lifelong learners. 

Our school Mission Statement is lived out in all that we do, and our school prayer grew out of our Mission Statement

We have a strong link with St Anselm's Church. We attend Mass regularly, and the priests visit the children in school.  The faith life of the school is not separate from the life of the school, the two aspects are indistinguishable. 

Included within our mission, are the nine aspects of Catholic Social teaching.  

Examples of how we live out our mission are:

  • The school chaplains linked up with the local Polish Club, and led a project to collect backpacks for children in Ukraine at Christmas
  • Year 6 children spent the day at a local foodbank (The Dons) to learn about food poverty and to help make up food parcels
  • Year 5 raised money for CAFOD through a sponsored times-tables test. They used the money to support CAFOD's World Gifts programme and chose what to buy
  • The school takes part in the annual CAFOD Big Lent Walk
  • The school chaplains help out at the parish Christmas Soup and Sandwich Club, which supports the parish senior citizens
  • The PTA, and Year 6, organise an annual Christmas party for the Parish Senior Citizens in the school hall
