Our Faith

At St Alphonsus’ Catholic Primary School, we are a community of learners inspired by the Gospel Values of Jesus. Our strong partnerships help us to ensure that everyone is valued and respected as unique, special and gifted and we encourage pupils to succeed at all levels to develop confident, independent learners. We promote creativity and curiosity in the belief that everyone has the capacity to achieve great things.

Our team of dedicated staff share the school vision and aim to enrich the faith journey of all our pupils. All are fully committed to the Mission Statement and promote the development, understanding and living out of our Gospel values.

All our work is based on a shared vision that every child is a unique individual created in the image of God, bringing a multitude of gifts and talents to our school. As part of God’s family, we at St Alphonsus’ School believe that the Light of Christ is present in each and every one of us. In doing so we recognise, respect and celebrate that we are all special: ‘learning with each other, serving each other and loving each other in a Christ-centred community.’ There is a strong belief that we can make a difference to our children’s lives. Our Catholic mission underpins all school life and is the driving force behind our desire to improve outcomes for all of our children. We also endeavour to build caring and supportive partnerships between school, home, parish and the wider community, strengthening an atmosphere of trust, friendship and respect.
