Vision & Ethos


Our vision for St. Bede’s RC Primary is to provide the community we serve with a truly outstanding school, consistently providing the highest quality of teaching and support for every individual child.

Our learning community is based on the Gospel values of love, tolerance and forgiveness where the achievements of all are celebrated.

That we have Christ at the centre of everything we do.

As a school and staff, we believe in an ethos where children of all backgrounds and cultures are welcomed and valued.

Outstanding behaviour and self-discipline must underpin our work, supported by parents, our parish and our wider community.

We want our pupils to be creative, inquisitive, compassionate and successful, through a curriculum that is rich, exciting, innovative and varied.

Finally, we believe our pupils should leave our school confident, proud of themselves, able to encourage others and embrace the changing world around them.  They will be able to look back on a wonderfully happy primary education and be eager to start the next stage of their learning.
