St William of York Catholic Primary School

Mission Statement

OUR MISSION STATEMENT

 

Together Everyone Achieves More.

 

To go forward in Christ, to respect our neighbour and to always give our best.

 

Introduction

St William of York is a Catholic Primary school providing a Christian Education based upon the Gospel values of: Honesty, Compassion, Forgiveness, Justice and Peace.

 

A fulfilment of our mission is when we see our children demonstrate these gospel values, when we see their positive views of themselves and the wider world, their excitement and their love of learning. By building their confidence, their inner belief, we equip them with the skills necessary to become lifelong learners and we prepare them for the next stage in their lives.

 

Our Aims

 

Aim 1

 

We aim to go forward in Christ by becoming independent learners in a climate of joy, freedom, respect, challenge, cooperation and celebration; enriching the lives of all pupils through their intellectual, physical, spiritual, moral, social and emotional development and preparing our children to flourish in an ever changing world.

 

To achieve these aims and bring joy and brightness to the lives of our pupils we will:

  • Valuing Christ at the centre of our lives.

  • Following Christ’s example through setting an example for others.

  • Through the teaching of the Come and See Programme, educate our pupils in the traditions of the Church and give them an understanding and knowledge of the life and teachings of Jesus Christ.


Aim 2

 

We aim to respect our neighbour by creating strong links with home, parish, neighbouring communities and High Schools, providing an education which promotes the dignity, self-esteem and full development of each person and by promoting British Values through social justice, global awareness and concern for others, creating a culture of tolerance where people of diverse identities are welcome, respected and cherished.

 

To achieve these aims and bring joy and brightness to the lives of our pupils we will:

  • Following Christ’s example through setting an example for others.

  • Creating an environment where everybody feels secure, valued and respected through our own personal behaviour.

  • Being a Catholic school that values and celebrates the contributions and commitment made by all members of the community including pupils, parents, carers, professional staff, volunteers and members of the wider community.

 

Aim 3

 

We aim to always give our best by ensuring access for all pupils to a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum, whilst encouraging every child’s unique talents and spiritual growth and by creating an environment which is both inspirational and harmonious; allowing children to thrive and reach their full potential.

 

To achieve these aims and bring joy and brightness to the lives of our pupils we will:

  • Following Christ’s example through setting an example for others.

  • Providing experiences and opportunities for our pupils beyond the curriculum to develop their interests and enhance their enjoyment.

  • Providing trained, qualified, enthusiastic, caring staff who will work with pupils in a safe, stimulating environment using appropriate, high quality resources.

  • Providing a balanced curriculum which fully meets all statutory requirements.

  • Regularly reviewing and evaluating the work of the school in order to maintain the high standards we expect of ourselves.
