These are our whole school core values:
Trust, Respect, Love and Truth.
They help us to know what we need to do to promote the ethos and belief of our school.
British Values…Gospel Values!
In 2013 the Department for Education reinforced
“Keeping our children safe and ensuring schools prepare them for life in modern Britain could not be more important. This change is an important step towards ensuring we have a strong legal basis for intervening in those schools where this is an issue. The vast majority of schools already promote British values. This is about making sure we have the tools we need to intervene if children are being let down.”
Schools are required to actively promote and not undermine “British Values”
The government has set out its definition of British Values as:
- the rule of law
- individual liberty
- mutual respect
- tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
This is a Catholic School which seeks to live out the values of Jesus Christ. We promote these values by our words and deeds, and Catholic doctrine and practice therefore permeates every aspect of the school’s activity. We provide a Catholic curriculum, which is broad and balanced, recognising that every pupil is unique and is created in the image of God (Genesis 1:27). Our curriculum is designed to enable every pupil to discern their vocation and to be well-equipped to follow it as active citizens in service to the world. Catholic Religious Education is the “core of the core curriculum” (Pope St John Paul II) and the foundations of the entire educational process. We also provide a wide range of extra-curricular activities and strong pastoral support. We incorporate democratic principles, value and the rule of law, support individual liberty and foster a community in which different faiths and beliefs are respected.
