Home School Agreement
We believe that parents are the first and foremost educators of their children and that we are called to support them in their God-given task.
We believe that through our school we enable our pupils to experience a vibrant, Christian community whereby we as a school engage with the world and offer an experience of The Gospel to all who have contact with us.
To achieve this we will reflect annually on our practice, celebrate and consolidate our successes and realistically explore ways of working closely together with parents, the parish and the wider community.
