Mission Statement

The child is the focus of our energy. We strive to deliver a holistic education to each child. It is our aim that each child reaches his or her full potential in a safe and happy environment. In our school the Catholic values of justice and respect for all guide us at all times.


Our vision is that children and staff work together to realise their full potential in a safe, happy and stimulating environment. We hope to provide the foundations for lifelong learning and for the children to become respectful, active members of society.
