Our Vision and Values


Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.

Catholic Religious Education is the “core of the core curriculum” (Pope St John Paul II) and the foundation of the entire educational process. We provide a broad and balanced curriculum, recognising that every pupil is unique and created in the image of God (Gen1:27). Our curriculum is designed to enable every pupil to flourish academically, spiritually, emotionally and socially, discerning his or her own vocation in life.  We support the development of future citizens who are concerned for the greater good of society – and are well prepared to make a positive contribution.

We provide a wide range of extra-curricular activities and pride ourselves on strong pastoral support. We incorporate democratic principles, value the rule of law, support individual liberty and foster a community in which different faiths and beliefs are respected.

During assemblies we explore and discuss themes, make links with our learning and explore moral messages. Love one another as I have loved you (John 13:34-35) encapsulates the important message to treat others as we would wish to be treated.  Tolerance, forgiveness and respect are strongly promoted.

School Council projects enable pupils to shape school improvements and lead whole school activity, listening to the ideas of peers and representing them in meetings.

Our positive behaviour strategies enable children to make decisions that benefit others – not just themselves. House systems, Special Friends in Reception and Year 6; rewarding children and giving responsibilities such as Prefects and Class Helpers further develop the communication and interpersonal skills which are essential to living a happy and fulfilling life not just in modern Britain but as a global citizens.

The children in our care deserve a first-class education during their time here so that they reach their academic potential; develop a thirst for learning; make friends, play fairly, laugh, love and leave knowing they were part of this very special school that is Holly Mount.
