  • Ensure quality provision for pupils’ spiritual, moral, social, and cultural education in line with the distinctive Catholic nature, purpose and aims of the school.
  • Build a collaborative learning culture within the school and develop and maintain a culture of high expectations for self and for others.
  • Ensure that the range, quality, and use of all available resources is monitored, evaluated, and reviewed to improve the quality of education for all pupils and provide value for money.
  • Monitor and evaluate the performance of the school and its achievements so as to develop and present a coherent, understandable, and accurate account of the school’s performance to a range of audiences including governors, parents and carers.
  • Continue to embed a school culture and curriculum based on Gospel values, the teaching of Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church, which take account of the richness and diversity of the school’s communities whilst creating and maintaining an effective partnership with parents and parish.

 We will offer:

  •  Enthusiastic and happy children who enjoy coming to school
  • Supportive parents who value the work of the school.
  • A skilled, experienced and caring staff team ambitious for all children.
  • A knowledgeable and supportive governing body who know the school and its community well.
