Our Vision at St Francis Xavier Catholic Primary School 2023-2024


Our vision and aims at St Francis Xavier Catholic Primary School are rooted in the Gospel Values and virtues, with Christ at the centre of all that we do. We commit to empowering all of our pupils, in a warm, welcoming and stimulating environment, so that every child aspires to be the best they can be- developing the values, knowledge and skills that will support them, as life-long learners, both through their Spiritual journey, educational journey and their individual personal development. We want to ignite self-belief in every single child, so that they fully believe that they can be successful in every way possible and achieve anything to their fullest potential and beyond. 


We will do this by:

  • Ensuring that school is always a safe and nurturing environment, where every child knows they are safe, welcome and included
  • Providing an inclusive, ambitious, knowledge rich, sequential and progressive curriculum- tailored for all of our children- regardless of their starting points and individual needs
  • Providing a broad curriculum that develops character, intellect, physical and emotional well-being and cultural understanding
  • Delivering high quality teaching that enables successful learners and ignites a passion for learning
  • Providing a learning environment that is stimulating, supportive and fully inclusive
  • Ensuring behaviours for learning are taught and understood, so that every child bring out the very best in themselves and all those around them
  • Develop a deepened understanding of caring for our common home, through explicit learning opportunities underpinned by Catholic Social Teaching, The fundamental British Values and Our Gospel values and virtues
