Ethos & Values

As a Catholic Primary School we offer an education that is not different from other Schools but one that is “distinctive”.  It is an education that is based on the teachings of Christ, and that is within a worshipping community, with moral values that respect the individual.


We will offer a high standard of education, including: 

  • emphasis on Religious Education and Worship
  • a community living and promoting the teachings of the Church
  • emphasis given to the value of respect for others
  • a partnership of home, school and Parish
  • an education that is Holy
  • the care and well being of the individual and family
  • the values of our mission to heal and reconcile as a process in educating and living
  • a staff that base their teaching on our mission statement.

All of these provide a basis for an education at St. Thomas More’s that is “distinctive”, an education that will reinforce and nurture those beliefs and actions that we as a School share with our Parish and homes.
