As a faith school our beliefs and values are at the core of our teaching and learning. We have a strong commitment to teaching our faith through our RE curriculum and also an appreciation of other faiths and values within our community and wider world. Relationships at all levels are given the highest priority and personal, social and emotional aspects of learning are seen as crucial to pupils’ well-being, enjoyment and success. The school mission To Live in Love is known and understood by all stakeholders and in order to do this we are called to ‘Love God, Love Each Other and Love Ourselves’
At St Therese of Lisieux all members of the school community are valued individuals who deserve the right to feel happy and safe. The teaching and learning at St Therese of Lisieux ensures that pupils have every opportunity to promote their core faith values of respect, tolerance, justice, honesty, forgiveness and compassion to ensure that everyone is treated fairly and diversity is celebrated.
