British Values Statement

We invite you to be aware of our work as a Rights Respecting School.


The whole school had great fun in learning about other countries and faiths in our world.  Each class studied a different country and shared what they had learnt in a market stall set-up held in the afternoon.


 'children helping children'

We raised money and said many prayers for children living in poverty around the world. 

The day was based around the 5 colours of the Mission Rosary, with each colour representing a different continent.  We even formed a whole school human rosary in our playground.
