Aims & Values

School Mission Statement

“We Learn, Love, Respect and Accept Our Responsibilities Through Our Faith in Jesus Christ”

Christianity lies at the heart of the school. Personal Social Health Education (PSHE) is central to the whole school ethos and is fully embedded into the curriculum and community.

The school community acknowledges and respects the individuality of pupils and nurtures their talents, regardless of their cultural background and religious belief.  Staff fully support all pupils including those with Special Educational Needs and those who are gifted and talented .

The school’s religious scheme of work covers multi-faith education and the Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning (SEAL)

The whole school attends Mass on Special Feast Days and Holy Days of Obligation.  Mass is presided by Father Cyril Chiaha who is committed to enhancing the spiritual welfare of all those associated with the school.


The aims and values of St Thomas of Canterbury Catholic Primary School are to:

  • Value every person, and to enable each individual’s gifts and talents to be recognised and developed
  • Educate every person by providing a creative, enjoyable, broad and balanced curriculum and offer continuous professional development
  • Acknowledge each pupil’s individual needs and strengths and offer personalised learning
  • Respect every person and develop self respect, in order that each individual may take their place as a participating member of the school community, and implement clear structures for acceptable behaviour
  • Enable every pupil to develop literacy and communication skills – to read, write, speak and listen accurately and effectively in order to prepare them for further education and employment
  • Enable every pupil to develop number concepts, fractions and the building blocks of algebra in order to prepare them for further education and employment
  • Offer outstanding leadership and management and excellent teaching to achieve excellence and enjoyment

This will enable every person to become:

  • Responsible members of a diverse society with respect for British values.  These incorporate the principles of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance for each other whilst valuing the contributions, cultures, beliefs and lifestyles of others
  • Successful learners who enjoy learning, make good progress and achieve their full potential
  • Confident individuals who are able to lead healthy, safe and fulfilling lives
