Vision and Mission

At St Pius X Catholic School we value each individual's gifts and talents, whereby children and staff are challenged and nurtured to achieve their full potential through quality Learning and Teaching experiences in a culture based on Gospel Values and through the embedded message of Laudato Si.

We at St Pius X Catholic Primary School are committed to and believe in:

CATHOLICITY

Valuing and promoting our unique Catholic ethos where Christ is our centre and respect, honesty, trust and Gospel values are promoted to provide a happy, inclusive and nurturing environment. We are encouraged through our daily actions to be carers for our common home.

RELATIONSHIPS

The belief that education and community connectedness is significantly enhanced by genuine, caring and positive relationships among staff, students, parents, parish, the wider community and our environment.

PEDAGOGY

Embedded practices directed by the message of action promoted in Laudato Si to promote relevant, appropriate and powerful learning experiences which cater for the ever-changing needs of students. These provide empowering opportunities for discovery, development, application and sustainability of knowledge in synergy through child centred pedagogies and ICLT integration.

PROFESSIONAL LEARNING

Fostering ongoing opportunities for professional learning and passionate, professional dialogue that fuels creative practice, which in turn amplifies learning gains for both staff and students.

REFLECTIVE PRACTICES

Cultivating reflective practices that contribute to a deeper understanding of professional application with reciprocity in highly effective practices.

DISTRIBUTIVE LEADERSHIP

Encouraging distributive leadership among staff to develop collective ownership and responsibility conducive to commonality of purpose that nurtures active engagement in learning and collaborative problem solving.

 

It is the intention and hope of our school to provide every student with experiences, knowledge and skills that will enable them to develop their whole selves in order to become the person fully alive that God created each to be. Read more about our Diocesan vision, mission and values here.
