Dear young people, do not be mediocre. The Christian life challenges us with great ideals.' Pope Francis
As a Catholic school, 10% of our teaching and learning time is dedicated to learning about our faith as well as the other world religions. Religion lessons and opportunities for prayer and worship are used to help the children understand their uniqueness and their role within God's family.
We follow a core programme called 'Come & See, as well as teaching the children about Catholic Social Teaching through Caritas in Action and Cafod Universal Church units. The curriculum overview can be found here.

The fundamental role of our work is to imbue in our children their value, worth and uniqueness as children of God. They were created to be great and through their time and shared experiences at Holy Family, we will work to make sure that they have every opportunity to achieve that greatness.
Through assemblies, opportunities for collective worship, relationships, pupil voice, themed weeks and community events we will promote and support values important to us such as tolerance and respect, personal freedom and liberty, equality of opportunity and democracy. By following Christ's example of loving one another and promoting forgiveness and fairness, we work hard daily to ensure that this is the experience of anybody who visits our school.
