What does ‘Catholic Social Teaching’ mean?
Catholic Social Teaching comes from our belief that
God has a plan for creation, a plan to build his kingdom of peace, love and justice. It is founded on
the knowledge that God has a special plan for every single one of us, whoever we are. Our part in this
plan involves every aspect of our lives, from the things we pray for, to how we live as a responsible global citizen. We are called to love others through our actions.
The Catholic Church has seven principles of social teaching that we share with our children through all that we do, through the curriculum, special events and activity and through our ordinary actions in school.
The Christian values at the heart of our Catholic faith incorporate the key British values and we aim,
in everything we do, to further each child's sense of commitment and responsibility to themselves, to others and in the wider world.
Through the relationships and support for each other that children, staff and parents enjoy within the school community, we enable children to come to know and experience God's love and to understand the commitment that we are called to make to serve others.
Catholic Social Teaching is at the heart of what we provide and the many opportunities that we give the children to take action to help others in need. Throughout the year we support a number of charities and special appeals or fund-raising activities which are chosen and coordinated by the children, led by our Young Missionaries group. Some of the charities we have supported are: CAFOD, UNICEF, McMillan Cancer Care, The Catholic Children’s Society and local charities who support the homeless.
