‘Putting Others First’

“Let no-one seek his own good, but the good of his neighbour…” (1 Corinthians 10:24)

At St Walburga’s, we celebrate that we are all members of God’s loving family. We do our best to follow Jesus by putting others first. Our school is a happy and safe place where we learn, have fun together, do well and achieve our potential.

Being part of God’s family is central to all we do. We are all united; working together to support one another within our happy school. St Walburga’s is a school filled with joy, where we celebrate our achievements on our journey together.


Our children are at the heart of our school community. We work together to ensure that they:

  • grow in their love of Jesus
  • feel happy, safe and valued
  • become independent and confident learners that are excited by new challenges
  • strive to achieve their best
  • are compassionate and understanding of the needs of those around them
  • recognise their contribution to the well-being of others in the community  

 Our staff are fundamental to achieving all we want for our children. As a team, they:

  • provide an outstanding role model of Christian values, nurturing and encouraging all in their care
  • deliver an exciting and stimulating curriculum that meets the personal needs of children
  • foster a love of learning through their dedication to their vocation
  • equip our children with the skills to manage the demands of an ever-changing world
  • communicate openly and effectively with parents about their child’s achievements
  • work collaboratively with external partners sharing good practice to enhance wider provision  

Our families play an integral role in the success of our school. In partnership with us, they:

  • promote the Christian values that underpin our school ethos
  • share knowledge of their children to secure the best outcomes
  • support their children with all aspects of learning within and beyond the curriculum
  • reinforce the high standards of behaviour expected in the school
  • participate fully in the life of the school  

Our Governors are responsible for providing the strategic direction of our school. Through leadership, they:

  • strengthen the faith focus of our school
  • safeguard the welfare of children and staff
  • challenge and hold school leaders to account to guarantee outstanding provision for all
  • engage with staff to monitor progress and support areas for development
  • provide effective financial management
  • deepen the strong home-school-parish links within our community  

Our Parish is our place of faith. Through its ministry, it:

  • draws us closer to Jesus
  • encourages all those in the community to live by the Christian values
  • cares for those in our community
  • promotes and facilitates the journey through the Sacraments
  • fosters the spirit of generosity within our children
  • provides a foundation for outreach within the community
