Holy Family Mission Statement and Introduction to Catholic Life

Welcome to the ‘Catholic Life of Holy Family School’ page.

We are proud to share and celebrate with you many of the elements which make Holy Family so special. Being a Catholic school, we place Jesus and the message of the Gospels at the centre of all that we do.

In the ‘Catholic Life’ area of the website, you will be able to find out about how RE is taught at Holy Family, how we pray and worship and some of the important dates and events in the Church year. You will be able to view photographs showing special celebrations, Collective Worship, school work, displays and charity work.

We hope that you find our ‘Catholic Life’ section informative and interesting. 

Below is our school’s Mission Statement, which is embedded throughout everything we do at school.

Our Mission Statement

In fulfilling our Mission Statement we aim to:

Pray together:

Through our family and community of faith we strive for all to hear the message of God.

Through the promotion of the Christian values of love, acceptance and respect for all, we will provide opportunities for all to develop an awareness of God’s presence in themselves and in others.

Through the teachings and practice of our faith we will provide opportunities to respond to the word of God through collective worship, celebration and quiet reflection.

Play together:

Through the development of excellent relationships in our school community we will strive to ensure all experience mutual respect, acceptance and love.

Through fun filled activities, projects and social events we will provide opportunities to promote community cohesion and togetherness.

Through our creative curriculum we will strive for all to seek excellence and experience enjoyment.

Learn together:

Through the provision of a stimulating, well-balanced, forward thinking, diverse curriculum we will provide opportunities for all to develop an awareness of themselves, others and the world in which we live.

Through inspirational, innovative, holistic teaching we will seek to create learners who aspire to succeed.

Through the promotion of learning and equality for all we will strive to create independent, life long learners.

Through the study of Religious Education at Holy Family, we aim to promote

  • The dignity and freedom of every person as creatures in the image and likeness of God.
  • Knowledge and understanding of the Catholic faith and life.
  • Knowledge and understanding of the response of faith to the ultimate questions about human life, its origin and purpose.
  • The skills required to engage in examination of and reflection upon religious belief and practice.

In addition to the above, we aim to inspire and encourage the beliefs and values which are lived out in the daily life of the Catholic school.

At Holy Family School, we follow the Come and See Religious Scheme. Through the study of the topics, children develop a greater awareness and knowledge of Christ and His teachings. Religious events are celebrated throughout the year and children develop a greater knowledge and understanding of key celebrations in the life of the Catholic Church. Children also learn about other faiths in order to develop a greater understanding and respect for other people’s faiths and beliefs.

Children participate in daily prayers and acts of collective worship which may be part of a key stage or whole school assembly.

Our Catholic faith is at the core of everything we do at Holy Family and is shown as we: pray together, play together and learn together.
