Welcome to St Thomas of Canterbury Catholic School
As a Catholic community, gospel values underpin our relationships with each other and the way that we develop our social attitude and conscience. Our Mission is not simply a statement. We live it throughout the day within the school through our behaviours and attitudes.
Our Mission: Live, Love, Believe, is the web upon which all our school life is woven.
Our Vision: Aspirational in Life, Joy in Love and Transformed in Belief, are the threads that strengthen this Mission so that it is impactful for all who are part of school community.
Aspirational in Life
This means that the school offers children a vibrant and challenging curriculum that supports the educational growth for each child, meeting them where they are and given the confidence and skills to aim high. Our learning teams and school leadership show through their actions that our school is a school that is the best for all its pupils.
Joy in Love
This means that all children have the experienced of professional love within the school, recognising that each child is their parent’s child, their community’s child, the world’s child and God’s child. Each child should have the opportunity to grow emotionally strong in our school, that recognises that each child has different life experiences that impact their arrival with us.
Transformed in Belief
This means that all children have the opportunity to develop as their personal spiritual life. This is shared within the school through the Catholic teachings of Love of God and Love of neighbour and the Virtues that underpin the school Mission.
Our vision ensures that the school’s improvement plans as well as the curriculum and experiences within the day to day life of the school are focussed to ensure that ALL pupils will achieve the very best that they can, knowing that they are loved by God.
The curriculum is underpinned by the the RICH learning behaviours:
R - resilient
I - independent
C - creative
H - helpful
