Vision Statement

Our Vision Statement

St Bernadette's Catholic Primary School is a welcoming school with a caring, friendly and supportive staff.  Our primary aim is to foster an environment in which each child can reach his/her full potential, spiritually, socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically so that each child may lead a healthy, productive and meaningful life.


The Governing Board, in conjunction with school leaders and stakeholders have set the vision for our school (July 2020):


  1. A school that continues to put Pupil Safeguarding at the centre of all that we do, including Strategies for coping with COVID-19
  2. A school that aspires to excellence in Teaching and judged by OFSTED to be at least “Good with some Outstanding features” across all areas including Leadership and Governance
  3. A school that Values its staff – their Mental Health and Wellbeing and seeking to alleviate unnecessary workload and ensure that Strategies for coping with COVID-19 continue to put staff safety at the forefront of our COVID-19 Plans
  4. A school that recruits develops and retains the best teachers to provide the best education for our pupils.
  5. A school that inspires children and young people to achieve and grow through the delivery of outstanding teaching and learning
  6. A school that benchmarks itself against the best.
  7.  A school that builds resilient young people ready and able to engage with the next steps on their Educational and faith journey through life.
  8. A school that is actively involved in teacher training programmes and initiatives such as our own “grow your own” pilot scheme to address the potential shortfall in Catholic Teachers
