An Introduction to Our Faith

At Saint Anne's we look to Jesus as our guide as we pray and learn, so that we can grow as friends together. Each one of us is special and we accept and respect one another as children of God.

This is our Mission Statement that encompasses our faith. The spirituality of our school is enriched by daily prayers, collective worship and regular masses and liturgies.

The Catholic faith is at the heart of our school. We work very hard to treat everyone in school with care and respect just as Jesus taught us to 'love one another as I have loved you'.

Our close link with our Parish is very important to us and our school chaplain is the Parish Priest, Father Pat. All of our assemblies and prayer services throughout the week are rooted in the teachings of Jesus.

St. Anne's is a vibrant, multicultural and multi-faith community and care and respect for individual differences is very much at the heart of our ethos. As well as the weekly acts of collective worship, our children also pray regularly throughout the day in their classrooms.

Jesus is at the heart of our school and as such we welcome and value equally all members of our school community.

School Worship and Assemblies

Children say prayers at the beginning and end of the morning and afternoon sessions. These are suited to the growing spirituality of the children.

We have a whole school Assembly on Mondays, a Key Stage 1 Assembly on Tuesdays and a Key Stage 2 Assembly on Wednesdays. These have a focus around the weekly theme, usually based on Gospel stories or the SEAL programme and children are invited to think about the message and respond.

Star assembly takes place on a Friday, led by the Senior Management Team when we celebrate the achievements of all our children.

Multi-Faith Week

Our children enjoy learning about different faiths and cultures, and during our Multi-Faith Week they produced presentations to show what they had learned about the religions they were studying. These presentations (in pdf form) can be read below:
