School Mission

Our Mission Statement

‘Let your light shine.’

Jesus said, ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will have the light of life.’

John 8:v12

At St Vincent’s Catholic Primary School we believe in and celebrate, the uniqueness of each child as created in the image of God. We aim to provide a high quality education and environment where each person can develop their individual potential. Christ’s example of love and care, shown by St Vincent de Paul, is encouraged through every aspect of school life and developed in partnership with parents, the parish and in the wider community.

As a voluntary aided Roman Catholic School, our faith permeates all aspects of school life. We aim to promote the independence of every person, as created in the image and likeness of God.  Our mission underpins our beliefs and values, which are lived out in the daily life of our catholic school.  


The Religious Education curriculum in St Vincent’s Catholic Primary School aims to promote:

  • Knowledge and understanding of the Catholic faith and life;
  • Knowledge and understanding of the response of faith to questions relating to awe and wonder;
  • The skills required to engage in a reflection upon religious belief and practice.


At St Vincent’s Catholic Primary School, we provide:

  • An outstanding catholic education enabling us to deliver outstanding results where pupils reach their individual potential.
  • A developing knowledge and understanding of the mystery of God and Jesus Christ, of the Church, and of the central beliefs which catholics hold.
  • A programme for prayer, wonder, awe, reverence and imagination for the spiritual development of our children.
  • Opportunities to foster appropriate attitudes in the modern world, taking into account living in a diverse multicultural, multi-faith society.
  • Opportunities to learn about other faiths.
