Our Mission, Values, Vision and Behaviour Principles

                        which are based on the two great Dominical Commandments

 

The Catholic faith is central in all aspects of school life. At St. Amand's we aim to provide a high standard of academic achievement in an environment which upholds strong moral, Christian and British values.

 

We aim to:

 

  • develop the children’s love of God the Creator and experience awe and wonder at His wonderful world

  • develop children’s self-respect,  self-confidence and self-discipline

  • help children to learn that mutual respect, understanding and tolerance of those with different cultures, faiths and beliefs are essential qualities

  • show children the value of working together, the importance of democracy and rule of law at school and in their community in the wider world.

  • provide an affirming environment in which children can think for themselves and begin to make wise choices

  • create a safe environment, in which children are supported to take responsibility for their own safety and well-being and that of others, particularly internet safety.

  • build resilience, reflectiveness and resourcefulness of each child, developing a positive attitude to learning

  • equip children to live out Gospel values as a witness to their faith

  • light children’s hearts and minds to inspire them to be the best they can be, using their God-given talents.
