Our School Aims 

 

School Ethos

Our school tries to create an atmosphere of freedom and love, where children can experience dignity as they develop towards Christian maturity. We are concerned with the development of the whole child – spiritual, physical, social, emotional and intellectual. We recognise the need to build on each child’s individual experiences and the school’s expectations are determined in light of these factors.

Our school shares in the rich heritage of the traditional prayers of the Church. We also try to encourage children to pray with openness and spontaneity at appropriate times in appropriate settings in order to reflect upon and deepen their understanding of each other and of God.

The school seeks to enable children of all abilities, irrespective of gender, class, cultural background and ethnic origin, to realise their full potential through the development of lively, enquiring minds, the ability to question and argue rationally, the capacity for creativity and enterprise, a facility in physical skills and the discipline and self – confidence necessary to apply these qualities effectively.
