Living the Vision
At Infant Jesus, our Vision is to develop the whole
child to seek the truth through the teachings
of Christ in Faith, Hope and Love.
Infant Jesus School is a place where every individual is welcomed, cherished, respected and valued. Our Catholic ethos ensures that a Christ-centred approach is at the heart of all we do. We live and learn within a community that is caring, loving, compassionate and forgiving. Meaningful relationships form the basis of all our interactions.
We provide our students with an education that will prepare them for life. Our learning community fosters confident, independent and life-long learning with an attitude which promotes achievement of the full potential of all individuals in an environment embedded in our Gospel values. We utilise technology as a tool to aid our learning and develop critical thinkers who are able to access information and communicate effectively, thereby enhancing their potential as life-long learners. Assessment tasks are explicit and meaningful catering for the children’s varied learning styles and provide diagnostic information for future planning. Reporting to parents is purposeful, varied and reflects the child’s development.
Our staff are dedicated, qualified, innovative professionals who receive ongoing training in current pedagogical practices. They are committed to supporting each child to achieve personal excellence.
We provide a nurturing learning environment where students feel happy and safe. Our students respect themselves and others in a manner which shows acceptance towards all cultures, both within the school and in the wider community.
We share a positive relationship and welcome close interactions between the school, parish and local community. We encourage our students to think of others, give service to those in need and foster a spirit of Truth and Justice for all.
We acknowledge parents as the first educators of their children. We have a strong partnership with each family and encourage their involvement. Our home/school relationships are based upon on-going communication, openness and trust. Parents are supported in understanding their role alongside the school and parish and together we support the child to achieve their potential.
