We are committed to continuous improvement and driving up standards of attainment and we are ambitious for our students and our staff.  We are a Catholic, learning, listening school where it is not enough that children know they are loved, we show them.

·         That has undergone rapid change?

·         Where the culture and ethos of the school is not just a fancy poster in reception, but something that we live and breathe every day?

·         With dedicated and caring staff who put the pupils and their learning, growth and personal development first?

·         Where the teacher is valued as the expert?     

·         That has a very clear and systematic approach to improving students’ attitude to learning?

·         That takes workload seriously and provides additional PPA (up to 16%) to support staff to forge relationships with parents to improve behaviour and attitudes to learning?

·         That values staff input, feedback and collaboration as the school moves on our mission to excellence.

·         That provides staff CPD to develop their practice and skills both internally but also recognised national qualifications?

·         That prioritises a ‘Knowledge Rich’ curricular approach, valuing the importance of a curriculum accessible to all?
