Catholic Education

At St Agnes’ we recognise that we are building the foundations for life-long learning with Christ at the centre. We want to capture and nurture a love of learning that our children will carry with them as they grow. We strongly believe that a caring and stimulating environment is essential to the development of our children and that learning should be fun, hands on, active and challenging. Our curriculum is carefully planned to ensure that all our children are encouraged to reach their full potential. In order to achieve this the Governors, Headteacher and Staff recognise the need to constantly review our practice to ensure our goals are being achieved. Every child should be happy, secure and confident. We value every child as a unique individual and provide a supportive and secure environment in which every child can flourish and learn.

 

CATHOLIC EDUCATION:

Religious Education is a core subject. The primary purpose of Catholic Education is the step by step study of the mystery of Christ, the teaching of the Church and its application in daily life, therefore the principal aims of the school in terms of the Religious Education which it provides are:

  • to lead the children to a deepening knowledge and understanding of the Catholic Faith.
  • to provide opportunities for the children to develop a loving relationship with God and their neighbour.
  • to encourage children to respect and be fully aware of the needs of others as equal members of God’s creation.

There are many opportunities for all children to explore their faith and deepen their relationship with Christ. This includes daily acts of worship, weekly assemblies, regular classroom/parish based liturgies and celebration of mass. The parish team works in full partnership with the school in supporting and enhancing the education and formation of our children.
