All that we do in our family of schools is defined by our Mission and our Vision:   

Our Mission: ‘The glory of God is a human being fully alive!’ (St Irenaeus)   

Our Vision: Human flourishing and the uniqueness of every individual as a child of God is at the heart of our Catholic educational enterprise. In this context, a human being fully alive is one who is open to faith – to love – to joy – and to learning. They are daily becoming the person God created them to be and they are ready to delight in their God-given gifts, and to use them in the service of the Common Good. 

We believe that each child is created in the image of God and is unique. All pupils have specific educational needs and are entitled to the best possible teaching support. Every pupil with SEN and disabilities in each of our inclusive schools is entitled to fulfil his/her optimum potential and to build their skills, knowledge and understanding along with their sense of self-worth.

The St Thomas Catholic Academies Trust is committed to providing an inclusive* curriculum to ensure the best possible progress for all of our pupils whatever their needs or abilities. Every teacher is a teacher of every pupil including those with SEND. 

Students who are ‘fully alive’ will be full participants in school life and will look forward to their time in school. We aim unlock the potential of each child to truly delight in their God-given gifts and talents.

Please see each school's website for their SEND policy and SEND Information Report / Local Offer.

(*Inclusive means where appropriate SEN pupils or pupils with a disability receive the support they need in order to attend classes with other pupils).
