Our vision and values
St Nicholas Of Tolentino was known for having a special love of children, a passion for caring for the poor and an ability to heal suffering and hurt. It is fitting that our name reflects our values; children and young people are at the centre of all we do; we are totally committed to care for all in our community, but particularly the most disadvantaged; and we seek to heal hurt and inequality wherever we encounter it.
Learning here at St Nicholas of Tolentine is underpinned by our six core values: Enjoy, Success, Respect, Community, Responsibility and Compassion.
Our values show that we place an emphasis on individual achievement whilst building an awareness and understanding of others. Our values have been underpinned by scriptures from the Bible, which matches them to the Catholic Ethos running through the school.
The school is a caring community that values personal, social and emotional development as well as academic and creative achievement.
We believe that a rich and engaging curriculum journey is every child’s entitlement so that they truly enjoy their learning. We want children to be able to see themselves and their families in what we provide from the diverse backgrounds they bring. This enriches learning journeys for all and brings together the six core values of the school.
We have fun in school because we believe this helps us learn.
We do our best because we want to achieve well.
We are honest with each other. We use our manners and are polite to everyone.
We are together. We learn from each other.
We are all trusted with responsibilities. We trust each other.
We care about each other. We show kindness to one another
