Values & vision

Our School Mission Statement

At St Anne’s we are encouraged to grow in God’s love, respect ourselves and others and do our best in work, prayer and play.

Our School Values

At St Anne’s, we always seek to act in a way which is spiritual, aspirational, truthful, collaborative, respectful, courageous and loving.

Fundamental British Values

Our school values link well with the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. We take our responsibility to promote these seriously. You can read more about this by ciicking here.

Our School Vision Statement

Our vision is for St Anne’s to be a vibrant and happy learning community that helps all children to become the people that God calls them to be.

Our School Aims

  • To make our pupils aware of their true dignity as children of God and to encourage in them a sense of the sacred and of respect for other races, religions and cultures;
  • To continue to develop strong moral values and a sense of right and wrong;
  • To know our children personally and build relationships of mutual trust;
  • To be a caring community involving children, parents, staff, governors and priests in the development of the whole child;
  • To create a climate of successful learning and teaching in which children are encouraged to develop enquiring minds and work to the best of their ability;
  • To stimulate in children a sense of awe and wonder, excitement and enthusiasm about the world around them;
  • To encourage children to value their personal contribution to the school and community;
  • To encourage children to become active and caring members of the wider community;
  • To help children make constructive use of their leisure time.

We aim to achieve our Mission by providing excellent education and strong support for School-Home-Parish links.

School

We believe that Christ is at the centre of all that happens within the St Anne’s school family.  We grow in God’s love by living according to the practices and teachings of the Catholic Church and by praying together as a school community.  We encourage every individual to develop as a whole person: academically, spiritually, physically, socially and emotionally.

Home
We undertake to support and understand children and their families, particularly in times of difficulty, and treat them at all times with a sensitivity that maintains the dignity of the individual.

Parish

We expect that the children’s faith journey, which starts at home and is nourished at school, will be supported by the whole parish community.
