Our School Aims & Mission

School Mission Statement

As a Catholic School, St Benedict’s is committed to serving the local Church by being a focus of Christian joy. This joy springs from knowledge of the Good News of Jesus Christ, from the shared celebration of the Church’s sacramental life and from the experience of belonging to a community inspired by love of God and neighbour. Under the patronage of St Benedict, special emphasis is placed on the centrality of this sense of belonging to a strong family. Each individual is known and loved and cared for. Parents and school share the responsibility of creating an environment, both safe and challenging, in which children can grow confidently towards human and spiritual maturity. St. Benedict’s acknowledges, in particular, that this growth is often threatened by circumstances and by the realities of human existence, and places great emphasis on the role of forgiveness and encouragement in enabling children to grow into true freedom of spirit.

School Aims

The following was drawn up by a working party on behalf of the Governing Body in January 1994 and is re-affirmed annually.

  • To lead children to discover the mystery of God and the wonder of creation and to enable them to live as children of God in the community of the Catholic Church.
  • To teach children what is right and just and to lead them to value every other person of whatever race, religion or background.
  • To help every child achieve his or her full potential by setting high standards of work and self-discipline and by showing particular care for the weaker and less able.
  • To develop, lively, enquiring and creative minds with the ability to question rationally and to apply themselves effectively to mental and physical tasks and skills.
  • To enable children to discover their own individuality and consider the needs of other children and adults.
  • To create a genuine sense of community within the school and to relate the school positively to the local Catholic Parish and wider community, especially the parents.
  • To lead children to appreciate and care for the environment in which they live and to seek justice and peace between individuals, groups and nations.
