Our Vision and Mission

Our vision and mission are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.

Blessed Mother Teresa’s Catholic Primary School is a Christian community based on the Gospel values of love, respect and tolerance; the teaching of Jesus Christ is reflected in the school’s caring attitude and determination to help all children of all abilities to achieve success and self-confidence.

Our school promotes the development of the whole person by encouraging each child to achieve his or her full potential; spiritually, morally and academically.

We recognise the important role of parents as our partners in guiding the children’s development, and this is reflected in the school’s welcoming and co-operative attitude to all of our families.


We will do this by:


Bringing God into our daily lives

Living our faith by caring for our friends and families

Being open to the needs of our parish and the wider world

Celebrating the wonder of God’s creation

Protecting our environment
