At St Elizabeth’s we actively promote the Gospel values in every action and moment of kindness in reflection of our school motto: ‘To live and learn as friends together. To Share and Give and Love.’
Our staff and learners at St Elizabeth’s work together as a family to ensure our school mission and statement fully meet the true meaning of ‘Living Life to the Full’ (John 10:10). As a community we show dignity and compassion to each other as part of our aim to always have a safe and caring learning environment that radiates happiness throughout the day.
In our daily Catholic life, we promote an awareness of God’s love to all as we celebrate each achievement. Daily prayers and acts of worship are consistently practiced and encouraged to promote Christ at the centre of our lives to develop an inclusive attitude of praise and thanksgiving for all the gifts of love, joy and friendship bestowed upon the school.
To live and learn at St Elizabeth’s is a visual journey of God’s image of love and sacrifice in action, that demonstrates the power of kindness in our small yet big hearted community.
St Elizabeth’s maintains as a Roman Catholic School, but we are fully inclusive and welcome children from all faiths or of no religion. Religious Education and our Christian ethos is taught by all teachers, and supported by our Catholic Ethos Advocate. Our Chapel is used frequently for Mass and our many prayer rooms give anyone the opportunity for quiet reflection throughout the day. If they choose, children can be prepared to receive their First Holy Communion and the Sacrament of Confirmation.
Our School Community is together:
♦ To be a sign of our Love of God and for each other
♦ To share the Good News with all we meet
♦ To live and learn together
♦ To make our world a better place for all
♦ To grow together in this love by doing our best in all we do
