Our Vision of Catholic Education
Catholic Education takes place in communities inspired by the Spirit of Christ.
Christ’s commandment to love God and neighbour inspires a caring ethos, which is expressed in relationships within and beyond Catholic schools.
Catholic Education is person-centred.
It promotes the dignity, self-esteem and full development of each person, who is made in God’s image and uniquely loved by God.
Catholic Education is inclusive.
It is respectful of, and engages with people of all beliefs; it encourages the religious development of all in their own faith.
Catholic Education is rooted in the Gospel values of Respect for Life, Love, Solidarity, Truth and Justice; it aims to harmonise faith and culture, build a better society and pursue the Common Good.
In our Catholic School the person and message of Christ finds expression in:
A Community of Faith, Service, Prayer and Worship;
The development of each person’s full potential in a climate of joy, freedom, respect, challenge, co-operation and celebration;
The enrichment of pupil life – intellectual, physical, spiritual, moral, social and emotional;
The promotion of a spirit of charity, social justice, global awareness and concern for others leading to practical outreach and partnerships;
A culture of tolerance where community members of diverse identities are recognised, welcomed, respected and cherished;
Listening, mutual understanding, trust, reconciliation, healing and peace;
The preparation of pupils to lead fulfilling and purposeful lives, which will contribute to the Common Good.
