Jesuit Virtues & Values
At Holy Name Catholic Primary School we strive to actively promote values, virtues and ethics that shape our pupils' character and moral perspective, through the teachings of the Catholic Church.
We are confident that our continued focus on the Jesuit Virtues will give our pupils an awareness of what it means to be a good citizen in Britain today, and embed in them the building blocks of a successful future whereby all children fulfil their potential.
Our whole school assemblies, key stage assemblies, prayer services and school Masses continually reiterate this. It is embedded throughout our curriculum themes and daily school experiences.
Through weekly assembly, prayer and liturgy, RE lessons, RSHE lessons and promoting The Beatitudes and Diocesan Virtues we are able to make real links between the values of our pupils and the lives of others in their community, country and the world in general.
Through our curriculum we teach our children about democracy, responsibility, rules and laws, the monarchy, equality, values and virtues, environmental awareness and importantly, respect of other world faiths.
