Ethos & Values

We are a caring faith school that aspires to providing the very highest quality teaching for your child within our nurturing Catholic community. With Jesus at the heart of everything we do, we live out our mission statement:

Learning, achieving and growing together with Jesus

Our aim as educators is to instill a lifelong love of learning in our pupils, coupled with excellent progress and attainment for all, in a safe and supportive environment. We want our pupils to leave our school as confident, resilient learners who are fully-equipped with all the skills necessary for 21st Century life.

Pupils are supported in their learning by all our staff who will bring out the very best in every child. We believe that every child has the capacity to succeed and we aim for the very highest standards. We recognise each of our pupils as a unique and gifted individual who has much to offer the world, and strive to develop the skills and talents of each one. Our emphasis on teamwork, collaboration and acceptance allows our pupils to operate in an environment of mutual respect and dignity for all.

Every member of our staff is committed to the personal, spiritual, emotional and academic growth and development of our pupils. Children at St Ethelbert’s are both supported and challenged in order that they are able to thrive and achieve their full potential as a valued member of the school and wider community.
