Our Mission Statement

At our school, with Jesus in our hearts, we have:

The passion to learn,

The courage to fail,

The strength to love.


Our Mission Statement was created by the whole school community to guide, support and underpin all that we do. Children are encouraged to ensure that their behaviour and attitudes strongly reflect our Mission Statement; a message which is constantly reinforced across the curriculum, assemblies, liturgies and daily acts of worship.


We actively teach and promote Catholic Christian values of love, faith, diligence, tolerance and respect for others. We want our children to grow up to be hardworking, confident, resilient individuals who play their part in the world as good citizens who know the difference between right and wrong.


Children are given opportunities to help develop a strong self-esteem and the skills of self- discipline. We encourage them to form positive habits and attitudes in order to promote good physical and mental health.

There are many practical examples of how this happens every day in our school, from curriculum visits and visitors to the active Friends of St Bernadette’s who encourage children and families to become involved in the school community.
