Classification of our school
We are a Catholic Aided Infant School for boys and girls in the 4 to 7 age range. We are affiliated to the Churches of St Mary and St John's, St David's and St Patrick's. Most of our children live locally. The Trust Deed of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Liverpool establishes the principles that govern the use of funds and property by the Archbishop and the Trustees.
We aim to provide a warm, nurturing environment where everyone is valued and respected.
We encourage all to play a full and active role in the process of leading, encouraging and equipping each child so that they can play a full part in society according to their interests, aptitudes and abilities. We acknowledge the important role parents play as the first educators of their children and the need of the school to work as closely as possible with them in the spirit of mutual respect.We recognise how important a good education is to future life chances and aim for every child to reach their full potential.
We endeavour to provide a sense of belonging, understanding, self-respect and respect for others, living by a set of ideals which will be common to home, school and the community. We respect and celebrate the place of all faiths, whilst promoting a strong Catholic tradition following the teachings of Jesus Christ.
