Our Mission Statement
¨ St Anselm’s School is founded on a belief that God is at the centre of our learning and achievement.
¨ We aim to show the children how to bring God into their lives so that the Catholic Faith is not merely something to be learned but a life to be lived.
¨ As a school we are aware of the responsibilities of leading children to develop a Christian vision of the world.
¨ At St Anselm’s we endeavour to make our school a friendly and caring community, providing conditions which will foster the healthy growth and development of each child’s spiritual, moral, emotional, social and academic education.
¨ We will endeavour to be witnesses to the Gospel values in every aspect of our lives so that we can lead by precept and example.
¨ We will endeavour to be a worshiping community who see prayer at the centre of their daily lives.
