Ethos and Values

At St Catherine's we strive to provide a caring, positive environment in which all members of the school community, irrespective of age, race, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, gender or disability are encouraged and expected to respect one another.

Together, in our Christian environment, we seek to develop children who are:

1) Keen to learn and achieve

2) Confident, hardworking and motivated

3) Happy, co-operative and independent

4) Responsible citizens, equipped for their future

We do this by

1) Providing an interesting, stimulating and varied curriculum

2) Setting clear, high expectations about standards of work

3) Promoting high standards of behaviour based on self-respect, respect for others and Christian values

4) Celebrating and rewarding success

5) Valuing everyone and their contribution to our school

6) Involving families in their child’s education

7) Providing opportunities for all members of our school community to be learners
