Padbury Catholic School is committed to its motto of ‘Love One Another’ (John 13:34). We believe strongly in an acceptance of all people; respecting personal dignity with Christ as our model. Each individual is viewed as a person of worth and their sacredness is respected and protected. Our aim is to see and value God and the good in all people. The school community values and encourages active participation by staff, parents and teachers working together to provide an atmosphere where members are approachable, empowered and treated in a fair and just manner.
The school community aims to model the values promoted by the gospels through all interactions. Gospel values are also encouraged through school based pastoral care initiatives and participation in the parish. Students have many opportunities to be involved in sharing their gifts through Christian service, both in the local community and in the parish. Families are encouraged to be actively involved in parish life and communication between home, school and parish is promoted through regular newsletters, emails and notices.
The school aims to provide a 21st century learning environment; with modern facilities and differentiated learning opportunities for all students, enabling them to reach their full potential. Staff utilise essential standardised, formal and informal data to ensure they have an ongoing and informative picture of the whole student, which allows for future goal setting and the promotion of learning. Parents are kept regularly informed of their child’s progress.
The implementation of all school wide programs is adapted to suit the culture and context of the school. Teachers are involved in programs which help them modify, refine and provide students with the best learning opportunities. Staff ensure they actively engage in the implementation of these programs in a unified and consistent manner.
Padbury Catholic is a vibrant, friendly school which empowers students to work towards being the best version of themselves.
