"Learning to love, live and celebrate as we grow in the knowledge and love of Christ"

Our Mission Statement

  ~ Learning to love, live and celebrate as we grow in the knowledge and love of Christ ~

Our Vision

We are a loving, learning community signcommitted to putting Gospel Values at the centre of all that we do.  In our school, all children are welcomed and nurtured within a partnership of support between school, home and parish so that each may become the person they were created to be.  We celebrate the value and uniqueness of the individual and aim to find the gift in each child.  We believe each child is "created in the image and likeness of God." (Genesis 1:27)

At St Thomas More School we put our vision and values into practice daily by:

  • implementing a therapeutic approach to behaviour management using the 'Hertfordshire Steps' and a Positive Behaviour policy
  • building lifelong learning habits through the use of Building Learning Power BLP
  • developing positive mindsets by encouraging children to try 'tricky things' and to learn to fail well
  • implementing Forest School which provides opportunities for our children to take supported risks, achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem and become resilient, independent and creative learners, through hands on experiences in our Forest School area
  • cultivating a resilient school community with a focus on positive relationships and mental health
  • promoting spiritual, moral, social and cultural education and citizenship linked to the seven themes of Catholic Social Teaching

"You are the light of the world... let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven." (Matthew 5:16)
