Celebrating Our Faith

St Wilfrid’s Mission Statement states: ‘We strive to follow Christ’s example to always do our best’
We celebrate our faith not only during RE lessons and Collective Worship - Christ is at the centre of everything that we do.
We embrace and champion British Values and strive to live our lives through the example of Christ and through embracing Gospel Values and Virtues
Our most recent RE Inspection during July 2017, recognised that: The school has a welcoming and engaging environment where pupils feel happy, safe and well cared for. The school is proud of its Catholicity and this is seen in the Christian imagery that greets visitors to the school building and website.  All pupils are able to articulate a profound sense of belonging to a Catholic school and what that means to them in their daily lives.
Visitors to our school comment upon the ‘Welcoming ethos...’ and have told us that, ‘As soon as they arrive it feels like a place where they would like to be.’
As members of St Wilfrid's School, our pupils understand that they are called to a life of service and they have a commitment to this - they participate in all aspects of Catholic Life with enthusiasm and, not only this, take responsibility for shaping activities with a religious character too.
