Welcome to St Thomas More Catholic Voluntary Academy.
St Thomas More Catholic Voluntary Academy is more than a school; it is a community. The school mission statement calls us all to “Love one another as I have loved you” and we strive to do this by living out the Gospel Values of respect, honesty and truth in our daily lives. This is evident in all aspects of school life.
I am privileged and extremely proud to be the Head teacher at a school where there is a cohesive and strong team of governors, staff, children and families who work together in partnership to meet the challenges and provide opportunities to prepare our children for further education and beyond. We have developed an ambitious and well sequenced curriculum and staff have high expectations of all children, in particular those with special educational needs and/or disabilities and the most disadvantaged. We plan regular opportunities to develop children beyond the academic curriculum, providing opportunities to have additional responsibilities in school and experiences to broaden horizons and aspirations.
All staff are sharply focused on keeping children safe and children report that they feel safe at school, with trusted adults they can talk to. We are an inclusive school with approachable staff who build positive and respectful working relationships with our families to ensure the best outcomes for all children. We teach children to be respectful of other religions and embed a culture of celebrating differences and diversity.
As part of the St Thomas Aquinas Multi Academy Trust, we can work closely with other Primary school and Secondary schools to provide the very best Catholic education.
I would encourage you to visit our school to meet our resilient and friendly children and staff.
