St. Godric’s is a welcoming Christian community providing a distinctive Catholic environment. Working in partnership with parents, parish and community, all are valued for who they are.
We believe that everyone is unique, gifted and loved by God. Through affirmation and challenge, all members of our school community are nurtured and encouraged to grow and develop their full potential and self worth.
The following is an extract from the ‘Aims of St. Godric’s School’. The full version is available for anyone who wishes to read it:
“A Catholic school is a community of faith with common vision, based on Christian values, and a knowledge of the world, illumined by faith.” (The Lay Catholic in School”)
- Community of faith: comprises all staff, parish, clergy and members of the school,
and an awareness of God, active in their lives. For some children the school may be the only community of faith that they experience.
- Common vision: growth towards Christ’s kingdom of
justice, peace and love.
- Based on Christian values: the life of Christ put into practice, by serving each other,
both in and out of the community.
- Illumined by faith: working towards the up-building of man, and growth towards,
and glory of God.
Each child is a unique individual, and has the opportunity during his/her years within the school, to affect and influence for good or ill, those around him/her, in a multiplicity of ways, through actions as well as words. Within St. Godric’s School we aim to develop in each individual:
(i) an awareness of God;
(ii) an awareness of individual potential;
(iii) the opportunity to develop the individual personality as fully as possible;
(iv) an appreciation of the place of the individual within the larger confines of class or school;
(v) the opportunity to develop good relationships outside the classroom;
(vi) the opportunity to develop good relationships outside the school environment.
The Headteacher and staff are available to deal with any questions, worries or problems you may have whilst your child is attending St. Godric’s. Please telephone to make an appointment, to ensure that the person you wish to see is available.
