Catholic Primary School

Catholic Ethos

 

All classes have taken an in depth look at the Parable of the Lost Sheep and the children have identified its key Gospel Values including love, reconciliation, service, compassion and forgiveness.  The children have spent time learning how they can apply these values to their daily lives.    

 

One of the core messages from the parable is that we are nurtured through God’s love, helping us to be the best version of ourselves.  Every day in school, we challenge and support the children to do their best; they are reminded that there is only one standard at More Park: their best 

 

This not only applies to academic standards, but to all aspects of school life i.e. being the best friend they can be, doing their best for the environment or their local community etc. 

 

To help embed this fundamental principle into the life of the school we consulted with all stakeholders and added the following strap line to our mission statement:

With God's love, we can be our best

 

Catholic Ethos

During their time at time More Park, the children are in a school with a strong Catholic ethos. Through lessons, prayer and liturgy, they are able to explore the life of God and develop their spirituality.

The children are given different opportunities to reflect and show their understanding of religion which include; daily acts of worships, masses, assemblies and visits to our church.

We are very fortunate to have Saint Thomas More Church next to our school. We regularly join the local congregation and attend mass. Our Parish Priest, Father Peter, helps and guides the children in their religious journey through penitential services, the sacrament of reconciliation and class talks.

 

Gospel Values

 

At the beginning of each academic year, children from across the school come together with Father Peter to discuss and decide upon the Gospel Values for the year.  They talk about the values, their meaning and how they relate to the liturgical year. Each term, the school explores a different Gospel Value and through liturgy, prayer and lessons, children discuss and reflect on what the Gospel Value means to them and how they are able to act it out in their daily life.
