‘Good teachers possess a capacity for connectedness. They are able to weave a complex web of connections among themselves, their subjects, and their students so that students can learn to weave a world for themselves.’ Parker Palmer
At the Convent of Jesus and Mary Catholic Infant School & Nursery we endeavour to nurture everyone’s intellectual, physical, spiritual, moral, social and emotional development so that we can all grow, flourish and become the people God wants us to be.
We aim to deliver an enriching curriculum with the highest standards and expectations which empowers our pupils to celebrate their uniqueness. Our personalised approach to learning ensures that it is tailored to our children’s individual needs and aspirations to reach their age-related expectations and beyond and realise their full potential.
The school community is characterised by wide-ranging socio-economic backgrounds. Therefore, our mission is to deliver a curriculum that promotes the dignity, self-esteem and the progress of each child through our Learning Behaviours which include; curiosity, creativity, resourcefulness, resilience and responsibility, allowing pupils to critically engage with the world as they find it and make connections, to the national and global contexts they live in.
