Catholic Life

School Vision. 

 

We will provide opportunities for children to live, love and learn with Jesus by their side.

 

School Ethos

Cheadle Catholic Infant School is a loving, caring Catholic Community working together in serving God, where each child is given the opportunity to achieve their full potential.

 

Our Mission Statement

I will try to live as Jesus wants me to live, He has shown me the way.

 

Our mission is to provide an excellent education for all children in our school. We aim to create a happy learning environment, inspired by the life and teachings of Jesus and to provide a broad and balanced curriculum in partnership with parents and the parish communities.

 

Our Core Values

Determination~ Positivity~Aspiration~Reflection~Challenge

 

Our aims are:

  • To encourage every child to develop their full potential- spiritually, academically, socially & physically.
  • To encourage each child to have an awareness of the needs of others and a sense of their own worth.
  • To foster the Catholic faith of the school community through prayer, worship and liturgy and to encourage and develop links with the family and the Parish.
  • Determination: Support children when learning becomes challenging so that they persevere, accept mistakes as a learning tool and persist until they succeed.
  • Positivity: Make learning fun so that children want to learn and see value in education
  • Aspiration: Provide experiences which show children the wide range of possibilities available to their future. Nothing is impossible!
  • Reflection: Encourage children to reflect on and evaluate their learning.
  • Challenge: Create a challenging curriculum that will open minds to accept and respect beliefs, social class, gender, ethnicity, ability and age.

At Cheadle Catholic Infant School we shape our curriculum to ensure it is fully inclusive of every child and that it addresses every aspect of how a child develops, progresses and grows both academically spiritually, morally, socially and emotionally.

 

The Aims of Collective Worship

      We believe that Collective Worship in our school should provide all pupils and staff with the opportunity to:

  • enrich their religious experience
  • grow in liturgical understanding and development
  • experience a sense of belonging and develop community spirit.
  • participate fully
  • reflect on spiritual and moral issues
  • respond to and celebrate life
  • contemplate something of the mystery of God.

GLOBAL LEARNING AT CHEADLE CATHOLIC INFANT SCHOOL

 

Global learning is about developing an understanding of our interdependence with other people and the planet, both globally and locally.  Essentially to see that by sharing a common home, we all depend on each other.

It is also about appreciating that the actions we take today have the potential to have an impact both now and for future generations to come.

 

At Cheadle Catholic Infant School we are fully committed to ensuring all our children have the opportunity to learn about the world around them and develop the knowledge and skills to make informed judgements on a number of important global issues.

Our approach to global learning will encourage awareness and critical thinking about important global issues such as poverty, climate change, religious and cultural differences, world trade and politics.

 

The aim is for our children to look at the immediate world around them and the world beyond them.  To understand and to want to take action on local and global issues.  To look outside their immediate surroundings and to think beyond themselves in order to work for a just and sustainable world. 

 

We will be continually  reviewing our existing learning provision and looking for new and exciting opportunities to further integrate global learning into our curriculum.  

 

Our commitment to global learning and change is rooted in a worldwide programme for change led by Pope Francis

Laudato Si was launched in  2015.

Laudato Si’

 

 

'Everything is connected. Concern for the environment thus needs to be joined to a sincere love for our fellow human beings and an unwavering commitment to resolving the problems of society.' 

Pope Francis, Laudato Si’ 2015.

 

In 2015, Pope Francis wrote an open letter to everyone on the planet urging us to take better care of our common home, the Earth.  There is an acknowledgement that this needs to be done together as nations, as companies and as individuals, by campaigning for changes in governments and other powerful structures as well as making changes in our own lives.

 

The Earth is God’s gift to us, he says, but some of us are consuming and wasting as if the Earth’s resources will last forever.  A completely new model of human progress if needed.  Pope Francis calls for us to work together to create a better world for future generations and asks us to make the necessary changes in our lives in order to take care of, and respect and value our common home.
