What Makes Us an Award-Winning School?

Mission Statement

Through God’s love, and with guidance from the Holy Spirit, we, the Community of St Charles, share our Catholic faith together. We seek to nurture in our children an understanding of the importance of Christian values and a deep love and lifelong commitment to God.

We value the unique strengths and gifts of the children entrusted to us and strive to provide an excellent education, so that through our teaching the children may realise their full potential.

In partnership with our families, Governors and Parish, and inspired by our faith, we support the children of St Charles. We encourage them to shine, to have pride in their achievements, to show concern for others and contribute to society as responsible citizens.

Our Aims
  • To appreciate that we are all uniquely created and loved by God.
  • To deepen each child’s understanding of the Catholic faith.
  • To nurture in the children an understanding of Christian values and how these help shape our lives and the lives of others.
  • To understand the importance of forgiveness and reconciliation.
  • To work in partnership with parents and Parish to create a Christian atmosphere enriched through prayer.
  • To provide an excellent education so children learn and achieve their potential.
  • To respect and care for one another in a happy, welcoming and nurturing community.
  • To ensure children care and respect others, develop an understanding of the world and contribute to society as responsible citizens.

Love For Teaching

Our teachers are enthusiastic and strive to encourage a love of learning in our pupils.

We have a broad curriculum where a wide range of teaching styles are used to ensure that every child is given the opportunity to achieve his/her potential.

This is a Good School

“Pupils are involved in many activities in and beyond the local community. Visits to the nearby universities raise aspirations for pupils and get them to think about opportunities beyond school.

Working with people who are less fortunate helps pupils to understand the diversity of the community. In addition, it helps them to understand how unforeseen circumstances can affect the lives of others.

Pupils understand the importance of respecting others and appreciate having opportunities ‘to give something back’ to their community.

Many pupils are involved in the choir and orchestra and enjoy performing at a variety of venues”.
