Our Mission Statement

Context, Mission and Vision

SS Peter and Paul is a Catholic Primary school. This means that we embrace the teachings of the Catholic Church and operate within the expectations of the Catholic community. All of our interactions, whether with children, parents, staff, governors and others visiting or associated with the school, are formed from Gospel values and the teachings of Jesus Christ. Our behaviour policy and practices are also based upon these teachings, which ensure that our children learn and grow into the faith.

 Our Context

SS Peter and Paul Catholic Primary School serves the parish of SS Peter and Paul and other surrounding parishes and chaplaincies.  The school works with local families that are a broad mix of nationalities, languages, cultures and faiths. As a Catholic school, we serve Catholic families, those from other Christian denominations and those of other faiths. This enables the school to foster an ethos of understanding, mutual respect, forgiveness, tolerance and welcome for all. We are part of the London Borough of Merton and the Diocese of Southwark.  SS Peter and Paul Catholic Primary School works in partnership with the Merton Catholic deanery schools, Teach Wimbledon, Merton Attain and the Mitcham Town Community Trust.

 The Core of our Mission Statement is

“Learning together, achieving together in Christ” 

This reflects the ambition and vision we have for enabling all of our children to achieve their best through collaboration, teamwork and mutual support within the Catholic context. As such we are a worshipping community, valuing prayer and praise, and enjoying close links with the parish of SS Peter and Paul in particular. Through our mission we develop appropriate values and morals, in conjunction with the families of our school, in order to live life to the full in Britain today. We raise funds for local, national and global charities as part of our school’s ethos, regularly teaching children about world events and the part they can play in bringing about positive change to their world. 

Our Vision

The values that Christ taught us underpin everything that we do

Learning Together

We aim to provide a stimulating curriculum, within a purposeful environment, that enriches the learning of the children.

Our children are encouraged to be confident and resilient learners in order to rise to the challenges they will encounter, within the school, the community and beyond.

 

Achieving Together

We aim to instil a sense of aspiration in the children through positive attitudes and high expectations. 

Our children can expect a consistent approach to enable them to succeed to the best of their abilities.

 

In Christ

The values that Christ taught us underpin everything that we do.
