Mission and Vision

St Edmund’s Catholic Primary School Mission Statement

Our Catholic School exists to provide an education that is God centred.
It is based on the belief that everything of worth comes from God
and builds on the faith already established by the family through Baptism.
Together we grow through worship and celebration.
We encourage our children to develop their spiritual and academic potential and individual talents.
We nurture qualities of honesty, tolerance, forgiveness, caring and patience.
All are made welcome and the worth of every individual is recognised, valued and celebrated.

‘Together we learn and grow through worship and celebration.’

The mission statement for our school was written by the original governors, staff and parents of the school.  It has been reviewed many times over the years, but the essence remains the same particularly the tag line starting with the word TOGETHER.  We feel very much that your child's education is a partnership and one we are sharing 'together'.

Within this mission, we also wanted to express the intent or vision we have for every child who leaves our school.   The vision for our school can be expressed in what we want our children to achieve...

At St Edmund’s we want all our children to develop their gifts, given by God, in order that they can:

1.  Be effective communicators who can express themselves confidently (listening, speaking, writing, presenting/performing, mathematics, technology, singing, poetry, artistic, body language etc.)
2.  Be active contributors within the community who show respect, demonstrate empathy, are tolerant of others and have a strong sense of social justice. (family, local, class, national, church, international)
3.  Be aspirational independent learners who show curiosity, are critical thinkers with the necessary dispositions/skills to enable them to achieve their goals in life. (resilience, risk-takers, determined, creative, problem solvers)
4.  Be healthy in mind and body with a zest for life. (self-awareness, self-worth, motivated, spiritual, peaceful, reflective, moral compass)
