Mission, Vision & Intent

At St. Anne’s, together in faith, we passionately commit to:

 

Build a loving, vibrant community with Christ at the heart;

  • Within our local and global communities, live, share and celebrate God’s word, together with the core values of our school community.
  • Work as one to make a positive difference in all that we do.
  • Responsibly keep everyone safe and secure within an environment of tolerance and respect.

 

Celebrate the uniqueness of all and enable them to reach their potential:

  • Value the uniqueness and dignity of all individuals, enabling them to grow, have aspirations and become global citizens of our common home.
  • To respectfully hear, listen and respond to everyone’s voice, thoughts and opinions equally.
  • Recognise and develop individual qualities to enable all to live life to the full with courage and compassion.

 

Through our shared vision and values, nurture knowledge and skills for life-long learning and achievement;

  • Build a place and a curriculum where everyone matters and everyone succeeds, with high expectations of ourselves and others.
  • Develop pupils who grow to care about the world and go on to make a positive difference.
  • For children to leave each stage of their learning journey with happy memories, lasting friendships and a desire to fulfil their hopes and dreams throughout their lives.

 

Raising self-esteem, with commitment, organisation and resilience, we achieve excellence as together we…   

“Learn to love, Love to learn in readiness for life.”

 

British Values at St Annes:

 

The DfE have reinforced the need to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British Values of:

Democracy

The Rule of Law

Individual Liberty

Mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs

 

As a Catholic School, we pride ourselves on ensuring that our Mission Statement of ‘Learn to Love, Love to Learn in readiness for life,’ encompasses these aims and is lived out in our Christian Community each day.

St Anne’s ethos is rooted in Gospel Values and all adults promote respect for others. Feedback from parents attending INSPIRE Days frequently highlights the strength of relationships between staff and pupils.  

Our SCORE Values: Self-Esteem, Commitment, Organisation, Resilience and Excellence reinforce the need for mutual respect and working collaboratively – often noted at Sports Day when pupils are keen to support each other.

 

Our House Teams are named after Saints central to the Catholic Faith and we feel that they promote a positive image and example of Gospel and British Values.

Each House Team is linked to one of our SCORE values and a British Value. Children have the opportunity during their time at St. Anne’s to dive deeper in their knowledge and understanding of their house saint, SCORE and British Values.

As a Catholic, worshipping community, pupils are reminded of their place in a culturally diverse society.  This is achieved through our ‘Personal Development Curriculum’ which includes; RE, RSE, Collective Worship, PSHE, SMSC, Pastoral Support, Science and British Values.

Our Personal Development Curriculum and learning environment promotes the diversity of society and the right for each person to be respected and valued equally regardless of ability, gender, faith, heritage or race. This supports the greatest of God’s Commandments:

 

 

Through our curriculum, we provide opportunities for our pupils to:

  • Engage with, and value, the views of everyone in our school community – ensuring that every child has a voice and that their opinions are valued.  
  • Have their voice heard through our School Council, Eco Team, E-Cadets and by talking to our Friendship Ambassadors.  
  • Have an active role in ‘Big Democracy’ sessions, where pupils debate current issues in House Team groups and make suggestions for school improvement. Children have been involved in developing our Curriculum intent, playground improvements, House Team development and Synod 2020 as part of our work as part of the wider community of Liverpool Archdiocese.
  • Take advantage of opportunities to develop their knowledge and understanding of democracy and how this impacts our lives in the wider national and international community. Upper Key Stage 2 pupils represent the school in the local ‘Junior Democracy Debate’ each year and pupils have also had the opportunity to communicate in different ways with local and national government representatives.

 

            

 

The importance of laws, whether they be those that govern the class, the school, or the country are consistently reinforced throughout the day, as well as when dealing with behaviour.  

 

Pupils are taught about why we have laws and how laws are enforced.  Regular visits from the Emergency Services and workshops at ‘Crucial Crew’ reinforce how to keep safe and the consequences of making choices in life.  

 

Forest School is the ideal place to learn about rules, boundaries and taking controlled risks.     

 

 

Within school, pupils are actively encouraged to make choices, knowing they are in a safe & supportive environment.  As a school we enable pupils to make choices safely, through the provision of a safe environment and empowering education.  

 

Pupils are encouraged to know their rights and personal freedoms and guided as to how to exercise these safely – through e-safety and curriculum lessons.
