St. Patrick's Academy - Mission Statement & Vision
Catholic Education takes place in communities inspired by the Spirit of Christ. Christ's commandment to love God and neighbour inspires a caring ethos which is expressed in relationships within and beyond Catholic schools.
Catholic Education is person-centred. It promotes the dignity, self-esteem and full development of each person who is made in God's image and uniquely loved by God.
Catholic Education is inclusive. It is respectful of, and engages with, people of all beliefs; it encourages the religious development of all in their own faith.
Catholic Education is rooted in the Gospel values of Respect for Life, Love, Solidarity, Truth and Justice. It aims to harmonise faith and culture, build a better society and pursue the Common Good.
In Catholic Schools the person and message of Christ find expression in:
"There is a culture of high expectations for all pupils, and they respond positively, engaging with purpose and enthusiasm" ETI January 2015
