Our Mission Statement

Our school mission statement is central to the life of the school. Governors, staff, parents and children have worked together to compose a statement that sums up our school and what we strive for.



We all belong together in God’s family. We acknowledge that parents are the primary educators of their children and we work together with them to make our school the best place to learn and grow into responsible people of God. By doing our best we make the most of all our God given talents. We grow physically, in our faith, in our attitudes and relationships, and in our understanding.


‘Together we will do our best for Jesus’

We care for each other, we are kind and help each other, we respect each other, we forgive each other and work for the common good of all. We do our best in all that we do. We learn about ourselves, relationships and our faith. We learn the skills and knowledge that we will need to take a full and active part in our community.
