Our School Vision,  Aims and Values

Our Vision

Following consultation with pupils,  parents and staff, we created a vision statement for our school which reflects all our aspirations.

‘We are dedicated to inspiring young minds with nurturing                       hearts in a vibrant community of faith and learning. Guided                     by the Gospel values, we empower our children to dream,                         believe and achieve’

Our Aims

Fostering High Quality Teaching and Learning.                                              To create an inclusive environment where every child receives high  quality teaching and learning experiences tailored to their  individual needs, helping them exceed what they believe their  potential to be, while developing the Four Capacities of Curriculum  for Excellence: successful learners, confident individuals,  responsible citizens and effective contributors.

Our inclusive environment develops the knowledge, skills and attributes the children need for learning, life and work, while nurturing their unique, God-given talents.

Upholding Children’s Rights                                                                                     To uphold and champion the rights of every child as outlined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), fostering an environment where every child’s voice is heard, valued and respected.

Implementing GIRFEC Principles                                                                         To embed the principles of Getting it Right for Every Child (GIRFEC) into our practices, ensuring the well-being and protection of every child while providing appropriate support and interventions to help them thrive academically, socially and emotionally, thus fostering resilience and positive well-being.

Nurturing Spiritual Development                                                                        To cultivate a nurturing environment where children can develop their knowledge and understanding of Catholic faith, nurture respect for other Christian traditions and world faiths, experience opportunities for spiritual growth, acquire the skills of reflection, discernment and moral decision-making and commit to beliefs, values and actions in a positive response to God’s invitation to faith.

Fostering Partnerships                                                                                                To work in partnership with parents, our parish and the wider community to support the holistic development of every child, recognising the importance of collaboration in providing a supportive and enriching educational experience.

The school community has identified the following values which        reflect the important principles on which we base our decisions:
