The 5 Ws
The 5Ws Framework provides both the school and the Bishop with a means of ensuring that matters of significant importance such as the Catholic life of the school, teaching, and learning, and prayer and worship are recognised and supported.
It is the close partnership of family, school, and parish which best nurtures the strength of faith required to meet the challenges of our world. All three places are havens of learning where we can discover through word and deed, through example and encouragement, the love that God has for us, and how we may respond to that gift of love. Real education comes through much more than the transmission of facts and knowledge. Education is a lived reality where facts are translated into decisions and demonstrated by action. Bishop John Arnold
"I was a stranger and you welcomed me." (Matthew 25:35)
At St Kentigern's we provide a warm and welcoming environment for all our children, families, staff, and visitors.
"The Word was made flesh. He lived among us." (John 1:14)
We grow to understand our Catholic Faith, through high-quality lessons and experiences so that we know what the true meaning of a Catholic life is.
We value the teachings of Jesus and we are faithful to his word.
"You are my Witness." (Isaiah 43:10)
At St Kentigern's we strive to act like Jesus would, wherever we go and with all we meet. We do not just learn about our faith, we live out its principles in the way we treat each other and through other projects, to ensure that we are acting out the Gospel values, through our lives.
"Love one another....'(Romans 13:8)
At St Kentigern's our children and staff are caring and supportive, not just of one another but of others in our society, both close to home and across the world.
Through our actions and by teaching others about love, forgiveness and kindness, we live our faith daily.
"Oh come, let us worship...let us kneel before the Lord, our maker." (Psalm 95:6)
At St Kentigern’s God is at the heart of all we do. We pray and reflect together in many different ways to show our love and devotion to God and to celebrate the spirituality of the community.
