Welcome to St Gabriel's Catholic Primary School
Welcome to St Gabriel’s!
On behalf of the staff, governors and children, I would like to welcome you to St. Gabriel’s Catholic Primary School website. This site is designed to be a source of information for our school community and a celebration of our children's many achievements. We also hope that if you are not familiar with our school, that this website will provide you with an insight into our ethos, values and commitment to high standards of teaching and learning.
‘It is the mission of this Catholic School to enable our children to become aware of the world that God has given them and to recognise their vocation and responsibilities within it’.
‘As a school we are concerned with the education of the whole child - spiritual, physical, intellectual, social, moral and emotional. We believe that every child has an inherent value as a person and we aim to develop each child's feeling of self -worth by allowing them to reach their full potential in all areas of the curriculum and by encouraging their own particular interests and strengths.’
Our mission is simply to follow Christ’s teaching. This permeates all aspects of our school life and community as we strive to be ‘mirrors of Christ’.
We aim to provide a rich, educational and social environment, which nurtures and challenges each child, enabling individuals to flourish and to achieve his or her highest possible potential. A child's time at the school will be an important part of their lifelong learning journey and with this in mind; we aim to make their educational experience at St Gabriel's a stimulating and enjoyable one. We offer our children an environment where they can achieve academically, creatively, spiritually and socially.
At St Gabriel’s we recognise that the partnership between home and school is one of the most important elements in ensuring that a child's education is a successful, rewarding and happy experience. For this reason, we value the support and commitment which parents offer both to the school as a whole and to their own child's education.
We are very proud of our links with the parish of St Gabriel’s and other churches within the local area. We work in partnership with them and the Diocese of Shrewsbury to bring Christ’s message and our faith into all aspects of school life.
I hope that you find our website informative and enjoy your visit. You are warmly invited to make an appointment and visit us at school to see for yourself our learning community in action!
