Through this mission we will aim to: inspire, motivate and achieve; unite, nurture and thrive; believe, pray and live in the Lord’s name with Jesus, our friend, by our sides.
The vision that we hold for our school is to tap into talents; break down barriers and dare to dream.
‘God has given each of us different gifts but he has given us the same spirit in our hearts’
The Corinthians (12:4-8, 11)
Our Mission Statement is at the heart of our school. We strive at all times to reflect the love of Jesus Christ by giving our children the best education possible in calm, safe and caring environment, ensuring that their dreams really do come true.
At St. Columba’s we have high expectations and aspirations for our pupils. We believe that children should enjoy school and want to come every day. We work hard to ensure that our environment is safe, welcoming and exciting, and that our curriculum is interesting and stimulating. We tap into the talents of every child, so that they will be motivated to achieve their full potential.
Our school is renowned for its welcoming and nurturing ethos. All visitors will be guaranteed the warmest of welcomes. The school has an excellent reputation with parents, parish and the wider community, particularly in regard to our Catholic ethos and the ‘exemplary and exceptional ‘care, guidance and support we give our children and their families. There are no barriers in our school, we unite together to fulfil our mission.
“Pupils are at the heart of everything that the school does. The relationships between adults and pupils are supportive and caring. Pupils live up to the high expectations that teachers have of them. They want pupils to achieve well. Pupils have wonderful opportunities to develop personally. Staff go the extra mile to help pupils develop their talents and interests. Pupils contribute to their community and to the life of the church. Pupils who spoke with us said that they believe that there is no limit to what they are capable of achieving.”
