Aims, Ethos and Vision

Inspired by our love and faith in Jesus Christ, St. Patrick’s school community will value the individuality and uniqueness of each person and provide a happy, safe and stimulating environment where all can learn and grow.

The Aims of the School

The Governing Body has approved the “Mission Statement” and states the school’s aims for every pupil in the school.

  1. Ethos
    Our aim is to assist everyone who is involved with the school in their faith development.
  2. Worship
    We aim to develop a ‘team’ approach to Christian development by encouraging everyone to become involved in the faith life of the school.
  3. Curriculum
    Our aim is to provide a balanced curriculum which:
  • promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of all pupils,
  • prepares pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.

4. Relationships within the School Community
Our aim is to foster and promote good interpersonal relationships between all members of the school community.

R.E. Curriculum

We aim to support an understanding of the religious and spiritual dimensions of life. While the teaching of the Catholic Faith is at the heart of R.E. lessons, other World Religions are taught to all age groups and pupils are encouraged to show respect and understanding for all points of view. This is particularly important in today’s world where there is a need for greater community cohesion.

In line with our Mission Statement, we aim to achieve high standards through a carefully planned curriculum and by creating an active and stimulating environment where we can all thrive. Our mission is summed up in our School Motto which is “Use well the gifts that God has given you“.
