As a Roman Catholic Academy, St. Michael’s is a community that seeks to live by the gospel taught by Jesus Christ and to learn from his example. In our experience of prayer, liturgy and pastoral care, we aim to value and respect all students and staff as unique individuals that all may grow and strive for excellence. Throughout our organisation, relationships and decisions, we aim
to promote forgiveness, encourage charity and build faith.
The aims of St.Michael’s Catholic Academy are set out in the Mission Statement. They are intended to generate the distinctive Catholic ethos of a caring community guided by the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, to enable personal fulfilment and the development of those attributes, which help people to value and celebrate each other’s uniqueness.
To achieve these aims, all members of St. Michael’s community have opportunities:
• To receive the message of the Gospels, which instil a knowledge and understanding of the teachings of the Catholic church and encourage an appreciation of other religions and different ways of life;
• To celebrate their own achievements and aspirations, as well as those of others;
• For support and a level of care which is appropriate to their needs, through personal guidance, counselling and consolation;
•To acquire knowledge and skills which improve their intellectual, social, physical, creative, and aesthetic, cultural, moral and spiritual capabilities;
• To make to a full contribution to the community, which helps them to understand its interdependent nature;
• Which ensure continuity and coherence through all stages of their education and encourage a partnership among students, parents, teachers, parishes, employers and the wider community;
• To have access to a forum in which they can express their views and ideas, relating to the organisation and long term planning of St.Michael’s.
