Ethos & Values

“An ethos is a way of living, behaving and doing things by people, though diverse, follow common values and are united by a shared vision of life.” (Monsignor Stack 2013)

We are a Catholic school and daily prayer and worship are integral to all that we do. We provide a range of opportunities for this. Staff meetings and briefings every week begin with a prayer/reflection. Pupils registration, lunchtime and at the end of the day includes a prayer and often a reflection. 

We offer our school community the opportunity to attend Mass weekly on each site or at St. Bernard's Church.


It is important to note that the ethos permeates all aspects of school life; “The curriculum as a whole, and every part of it, is religious, since there is nothing which does not ultimately relate to God.”(Evaluating the Distinctive Nature of the Catholic school)

Aims of our School

  • To encourage all to see Jesus in one another.

  • To encourage self–respect for others and care for God’s environment.

  • To foster a true family unit.

  • To look towards St. Joseph as our role model by aiming to re–affirm his qualities of care, compassion, patience, understanding, tolerance and practical common sense.

  • To foster the spiritual, moral, social, emotional and physical development of each individual to enable them to cope successfully with the outside world.

  • To ensure that each child has an equal entitlement to a broad and balanced education of the highest standard.

  • To create a stimulating learning environment which ensures that all children reach their full potential.

  • To create and maintain a safe, caring community which encourages self–motivation, self–discipline and independence.
