Statements to Live by at St Anne’s

'Statements to Live By' encompass 36 statements, that are rooted in nine guiding principles and support the distinctive nature of our Catholic School. 

The Statements make our Catholic values school explicit, promoting both a positive and caring Christian ethos that is understood and communicated to everyone , thus developing our children’s emotional literacy and contributing towards the common good. 

The statements that we share with our children in school enable them to-

  • Hear the Christian story and encounter Jesus. 
  • Understand their uniqueness as made in the image and likeness of God.
  • Experience a sense of belonging within a range of communities, including the local Eucharistic community. 
  • Know, appreciate and understand the importance of social justice.
  • Know that our limitations are also opportunities for growth.
  • Understand the connection between knowledge and living.
  • Know that everything has the opportunity to reveal God's presence to us, e.g. to see the divine in the ordinary.
  • Forgive and be forgiven, to reconcile and to be reconciled.
  • Experience fun, humour, imagination, creativity, play and excitement in life. 


At St Anne’s, we share these statements throughout the year- introducing them and referring back to them, as a whole school and within our classrooms-with a focus on a common belief in the Gospel Values.

We hope that as our school community, we will nurture a sense of what it is to be fully human and alive - both as children and adults in our Christian community.
