Catholic Social Teaching / the Common Good

The Christian values at the heart of our Catholic faith incorporate key British values and we aim in everything we do to further each child's sense of commitment and responsibility towards others; at home, school, in the local community and in the wider world. Throughout the year we support a number of charities, special appeals and fund-raising activities.  

One of the important tasks of our Catholic school is to encourage those we teach to work for positive change in our world. Catholic schools should be very actively involved in social justice issues. Catholic social teaching covers human dignity and the option for the poor, the dignity of work, solidarity and subsidiarity, a place at the table for all, political responsibility, social justice and stewardship of creation.

It incorporates the common good; working in a world in which everyone can live their lives to the full. Catholic social teaching informs our actions and the issues that the teaching covers affect everyone in our school as we engage with and affect each other. We endeavour to make this visible in our Catholic school, a guide to our relationships with one another and to our interactions with the wider world.
