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.
- We believe that every child and young person is important and it is our mission to guarantee success for every individual;
- We believe in having high expectations of children and young people and of ourselves;
- We believe positive relationships are vital to success in life and in education. People learn far more effectively if they are happy and secure and if they can make a positive contribution. We actively promote the notion of service and helping others;
- We believe that partnership is essential to successful education and that our school listens to, and grows with, its community. Parents are a vital partner in ensuring that progress and outcomes for children and young people are outstanding. We welcome partnerships in many forms.
