Values and Virtues
“My question for you is this: What are the qualities you see in others that you would most like to have yourselves? What kind of person would you really like to be?”
Jesuit Pupil Profile
We follow the Jesuit Pupil Profile. With our faith-filled community as a strong foundation to Children, we watch them grow and flourish as they build their values and virtues. We focus on two of the Values and Virtues each half term. Our spiritual leaders from each class present a certificate to those taking action through these in our Gather and Celebrate Liturgy at the end of each week.

Values and Virtues - Spring 2
Attentive and Discerning
Pupils are growing to be attentive to their experience and to their vocation; and discerning about the choices they make and the effects of those choices.
What does this mean?
We help our pupils grow by promoting the practice of attentive reflection and discerning decision making: in teaching, in the examen, prayer and retreats; and through the practice and example of school leaders and staff.
We share these values through the Gospel:
