Pupils at St-Gregorys Catholic Primary School are growing to be:
Grateful for their own gifts, for the gift of other people, and for the blessings of each day; and generous with their gifts, becoming men and women for others.
Attentive to their experience and to their vocation; and discerning about the choices they make and the effects of those choices.
Compassionate towards others, near and far, especially the less fortunate; and loving by their just actions and forgiving words.
Faith-filled in their beliefs and hopeful for the future.
Eloquent and truthful in what they say of themselves, the relations between people, and the world.
Learned, finding God in all things; and wise in the ways they use their learning for the common good.
Curious about everything; and active in their engagement with the world, changing what they can for the better.
Intentional in the way they live and use the resources of the earth, guided by conscience; and prophetic in the example they set to others.
Each half term, the children develop their understanding of two new virtues and strive to apply these to their everyday lives.
Our Mission Statement is a short phrase which all children will be able to say and understand and which will sum up everything about what the school is trying to achieve. Our Mission Statement is:
‘ Servus Servorum Dei Learning and Growing in the Service of God’
The Latin part of the phrase is the title St. Gregory gave to himself when he was elected Pope. It translates as ‘Servant of the Servants of God’.The English part relates to the Latin but also attempts to sum up why the school exists. Children come to school to learn and also to grow not just physically, but also intellectually, morally, emotionally, socially and of course spiritually.Underpinning the Statement is a set of school aims, objectives, tasks and performance indicators covering five categories of school life as suggested by the Archdiocese. They will enable the school to ensure that we continue to strive towards our overall aims and objectives.
