St Adrian’s Catholic Primary School was founded by the Sisters of Mercy in 1960. Continuing in the Mercy tradition, our vibrant, harmonious and engaging Catholic community will encourage all to make informed personal, spiritual and moral choices based on gospel values. Commitment to the Common Good of our global family will be rooted in a shared understanding of the social teaching of the Church and the collective rights and responsibilities of all.
Our vision is to be an outstanding Catholic school in the Mercy tradition that provides an excellent all round education for every pupil in the school.
- Founded on a Mercy tradition, our vibrant, harmonious and engaging Catholic community will encourage all to make informed personal, spiritual and moral choices based on gospel values. Commitment to the Common Good of our global family will be rooted in a shared understanding of the social teaching of the Church and the collective rights and responsibilities of all.
- School leadership will require all staff to set high expectations and foster a culture of aspiration which enables students to develop as independent learners with the resilience, confidence and the skills necessary for lifelong learning. This will prepare our pupils for the next stage of their education and their life within and beyond our school.
- All pupils, regardless of their starting point, will make good or better than expected progress over time and will be challenged and supported to fulfil their God-given potential. The school’s attainment will be above published national standards.
- The commitment and expertise of governors working with senior leaders will have a positive impact on pupils’ outcomes. Their support, rigorous review and monitoring will ensure that the school continues to improve.
- To ensure the wellbeing of pupils is at the heart of our partnership, the school will build a strong relationship with parents, carers , the parish, the diocese and all relevant external providers.
- Striving for excellence, governors and staff will respond to continuous self-evaluation and the changes in our education system, basing their decisions on Catholic values, openness and creativity.
Within the love of God our Father, we seek to be a welcoming community, where each person is valued and enabled to grow; where gifts are nurtured; differences treasured and all are cared for.
Living, loving and learning together in a rapidly changing world, we believe our school is a sign of God’s kingdom of love, allowing each of us to move confidently into the future with a zest for knowledge, following the path of Jesus in truth and justice and at peace with God and one another
And so, as a community of children, staff, parents and governors, we strive:
- To develop and sustain a sense of God’s presence in our lives
- To develop self-confidence and independence, with a sense of worth and self-esteem.
- To recognise and value all people with their diversity of gifts, cultures and faiths
- To have consideration for others, learning to work together with a sense of social responsibility and compassion.
- To help everyone to feel valued and confident as an individual and part of a loving community.
- To promote a zest for learning and a passion for life’s opportunities
- To become the best that we can be personally and academically
“To learn, to love, to live as a community of God with Christ as our teacher”
