As members of St Anthony's Catholic Primary School we recognise that the Gospel message is the focus of school life. We aim to provide a school community where there is a climate of success and achievement. We aim to provide a school where each person's individuality and rights are respected.
Gospel values permeate our school, not only in celebration and prayer, but through all our work. By working together in partnership with parents we aim to encourage each child to reach their potential academically, socially and spiritually.
The aims and ethos of the school
The aims and ethos of the school are:-
- To create a happy, stimulating and caring Christian environment, in which each child feels confident and secure as a member of the school community
- To help each child reach his/her potential
- To help foster an atmosphere of mutual respect for all members of the school community
- In partnership with parents and the parish community, we aim to create an atmosphere where each child will flourish and develop into a self-motivated and responsible citizen
"Pupils' personal development, including their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, is good and is another key factor in their good academic and social achievement. This is because it leads to their good behaviour and increasing maturity as they go through the school. Pupils work together well in pairs and teams and develop good social skills, enthusiastically carrying out a range of responsibilities well. Their collections for a range of charities reflect their care and concern for others. Pupils have a good understanding of the need to eat healthily and take frequent exercise. The careful attention given to providing pupils with the basic skills of literacy and numeracy, while developing their personal attributes, prepares them well for the next stage in their education." - Ofsted 2007
