Our Virtues, Vision & Values
The Trust has adopted the following virtues, vision and values to guide us in our mission and to underpin all that we do:
Our schools will be places of excellence – providing service and witness to children, their families and the wider Catholic community, adding value as a family of schools and enriching the learning and experience of all our young people so they may achieve their full potential.
Our Trust is built around providing opportunities, academic, social and cultural, for pupils to develop their character through a focus on the Virtues, following the principles of Virtue Theory.
The following values underpin everything the Trust and our Schools will do:
BEING Just and Responsible
We seek to act justly, fairly and responsibly in all our relationships to ensure ‘The Common Good’ is upheld.
PROMOTING Spiritual and Human Development
We believe a knowledge of and a personal relationship with Christ gives meaning and purpose to our lives.
ACHIEVING Quality in Teaching and Learning
We believe everyone should gain dignity and self-worth through quality teaching and learning which allow all in our school community to excel.
SHOWING Respect for Every Person
We believe that all are created in the image of God and therefore we will respect the unique and intrinsic value of every person, promoting equality and celebrating diversity.
We believe our schools to be faith communities where Gospel values of truth, honesty, forgiveness and reconciliation are lived and where there is special care for those most in need.
We value the views and opinions of the communities whom we serve and will actively engage and respond.
