Welcome to our school
At the heart of our ethos is the desire to stimulate each child as a learner, and fully engage them, developing their natural talents, and allowing them to discover their own great potential.
Our dedicated staff forge warm relationships with children and parents, and we seek to provide a happy, supportive environment where our Catholic mission is lived each day.
Through creative teaching approaches, and a broad curriculum, we develop critical thinking across the range of subject areas, challenging children to excellence, whilst at the same time honing positive attitudes and behaviours.
We enjoy high standards academically, but we place the greatest value on inculcating the Christian virtues initiated at home, and developed through a strong partnership.
Building on children’s innate capabilities, we ensure full participation in all aspects of learning, irrespective of capability, and this is nowhere more evident than in the school’s provision for sport. Children – when they enter key stage two, represent the school across a range of sports; and participate competitively at borough and national levels.
In addition to the core subjects, Religious Education, Literacy, Numeracy and Science, we pride ourselves on the use of drama; the school’s musical provision; the teaching of Spanish, and the exploration of “Forest Schools”, which is our newest initiative. We have recently been working on our ‘philosophy’ for the teaching of History and Geography. Our curriculum for Computing is based on the theories of 21st century learning.
The children here are encouraged to have a voice and to steer school improvement, especially those directly relating to playtimes. The re-design of the playground has been the most recent project led by the children.
We also welcome feedback from parents on how our website can be further improved.
