School Motto: Let your words teach and your actions speak

Within the Catholic setting of our school, we at St Anthony’s are working to prepare the children in our care to take their places in a multi-cultural society, developing in them a sense of peace, justice and respect.


We wish to create an atmosphere that reflects the teaching of Christ, laying down the foundation for a living faith in accordance with our Catholic tradition. We wish to create a safe, secure environment in which every individual is treated with understanding and respect.

Our Wellbeing Vision

At St Anthony’s, commitment to positive wellbeing and mental health for our pupils, families and staff is embedded as a central thread within our ethos, culture and vocation. A whole school approach to wellbeing, where everyone within the school community has an important role to play, is underpinned by our motto ‘May your words teach and your actions speak.’ It is fully understood – and believed – that through achieving positive wellbeing, young people will thrive and achieve their full potential. We acknowledge that we will face challenges in daily life but believe that we can all work through these challenges together. United in faith and developing Catholic virtues, we can develop resilience and celebrate growth, achievement and successes as a valued member of our community.

Aims and objectives

Through all we do and teach at our school, we aim to:

  • Foster spiritual and moral development
  • Promote vocation and aspiration through educational excellence
  • Enable each child to achieve their intellectual potential
  • Encourage personal and social development
  • Strengthen links with the wider community

As part of achieving our aims, we expect our pupils to give to others and expect the following Three Rights (3Rs):

  • The right to learn;
  • The right to be safe;
  • The right to be treated with respect.

These rights encompass all that we expect of our pupils both in and out of the building, both within and beyond learning.

Our values and ethos are explicitly threaded throughout our policies and curriculum statement.
