Vision & Values
The mission of St Thomas More's Catholic Primary School is to educate and inspire every child to fulfil their unique giftedness within a loving Catholic community.
Everyone in the school community will leave our school feeling they have achieved more than they ever thought possible. We will remember, in years to come, experiences that helped shape our future and we will make a difference to the world by serving God by helping others.
Everything which our school does is based around three aims;
St Thomas More’s Catholic Primary School is a supportive learning community where:
- prayer and worship are at the heart of daily life
- home, school and church work together as God’s loving family to motivate and challenge
- individual differences are recognised, respected and valued, and responsibility is encouraged
- all are empowered to learn through living out the teachings of Jesus in a spirit of love, care, fun and friendship.
We believe that there are core values which every member of our school community should hold with the upmost importance. These values should be displayed in our work with others, at playtimes and in the classroom. These values influence our approach to everything we do and our attitude towards others. They are steeped in gospel teachings and reflect the kind of person Jesus was and the person he wants us to be.
Catholic Social Teaching
At St Thomas More's we are dedicated to promoting Catholic Social Teaching, the principles of which are listed below.
We are very proud holders of The Romero Award which celebrates the work which schools do and challenges them to travel further along the road to creating a society where these principles are lived out daily and where equity is strived for, more than equality.
