Mission Statement

Learning to live by faith and be known by love.

 

Vision Statement

We are all unique, yet we are all one in Christ.

As children of God, we strive to develop our own identities, to build our school community and to make the world a better place.  We follow in Jesus’s footsteps by being kind and compassionate, respectful and responsible and by being hard-working and humble.  Confident in the love of God, we are safe to explore, to contribute and to take risks.

Teachers expertly guide and facilitate every child’s unique learning journey and strive for excellence.  With the wisdom that the Lord gives, adults work alongside children to help them develop inquisitive minds and become self-motivated learners through broad and fun opportunities.  All success is celebrated and our vibrant community is bound by a life-long love of learning.


Our Ethos:

St Anne’s Catholic Primary School was established in 1898, and since that time has been providing primary education to the children of Reading.

The school was founded by the Catholic Church to provide education for children of Catholic families. The school is conducted by its Governing Body as part of the Catholic Church in accordance with its Trust Deed and Instrument of Government and seeks at all times to be a witness to Jesus Christ. As a Catholic school we hold the Gospel of Jesus Christ at the heart of our school family. We therefore value our pupils as children of God, entitled to be educated to their full potential. The school shares with parents, the Church and the wider community, the responsibility of leading children to know and love God and to develop an appreciation of His world.
