We Worship As A School Family
The school community gathers to pray regularly through Whole School Assemblies which take place on Monday mornings and Friday afternoons.
Each class prays at the beginning, middle and end of each day. Parents and carers are invited to join us as we come together to pray as a school family at School Masses and Prayer Services.
We are a Worshipping Community Within The Parish of St Patrick’s
We have very close links with our Parish of St Patrick’s and Father George celebrates Mass fortnightly in school.
In Year 3 children prepare to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion, the Church works closely with parents during this time to reinforce the important role of parents within God’s family during these special celebrations.
Throughout Key Stage Two, pupils are supported and encouraged to become mature and responsible global citizens of the 21st Century. In their final year of Primary School, children prepare to become adults in the eyes of the church, by receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation. By accepting the Holy Spirit and renewing their baptismal promises, that were previous made for them, these young adults have the understanding and knowledge within them formed by the Catholic education they have experienced.
Fostering Links with Home, School & The Wider Community
As parents you are the first and most significant educators in your child’s life. By having your child baptised you have expressed your wish to have them brought up within the Catholic faith. Working closely together, forming a partnership between parents and the school, we aspire to nurture the unique qualities of each child and allow them to flourish and grow throughout their primary years.
Through our RE curriculum and Sacramental preparation we guide children on their journey of faith. Children take part in daily collective worship and regular assemblies, many of which are child planned and led.
The pupils have the opportunity to serve the school and played a vital role in the spiritual life of the school.
