Our Ethos and Values
‘We live, love and learn in our work and play as part of God’s family.’
Our Mission statement underpins all that is done at our School. We aim to create and maintain an atmosphere where every person in our school community is valued and respected, regardless of race, gender and ability. We expect and encourage children to work hard and to respect their environment. We hope to encourage positive self-esteem and a sense of belonging.
St. Rose’s School enjoys positive, valued relationships within the parish and Community which foster a sense of continuity and commitment. We work closely with the Diocese and our Parishes. Our School Chaplain is Fr. Paul and he says masses, leads liturgies and talks to the children on an informal basis. Fr Paul also provides support and advice for staff on liturgical themes.
We aim to offer opportunities for pupils to develop an understanding of their faith and develop spiritually, morally, socially and culturally. The children's faith is developed by the use of the “The Come and See” Participation in Feast Days throughout the year and regular worship in classes and assemblies are an integral part of the children’s faith development.
Our most recent RE inspection took place in 2015, please view the attached report which recognises the good RE teaching and learning at school and the outstanding Catholic life of the school.
Golden Jubilee Celebration Mass 2017
The Mass to celebrate and bless our school as it celebrates fifty years of educating young minds took place on Thursday 29th June 2017 and it was a very memorable event for everyone concerned. Mass was celebrated by Bishop Paul McAleenan. It was an opportunity for the school to give thanks to all the individuals and organisations, such as Westminster Diocese, who have helped this fantastic school grow from strength to strength throughout the years. It was also the feast day of St Peter and St Paul. In his homily Bishop McAleenan talked about how we can show our faith in Jesus in all that we do and how we treat each other.
