Our Faith 

Jesus said, ‘Let the children come to me.’ We live and learn and love in His way'

Catholic School Inspection Report - March 2023

We are an 'Outstanding' Catholic School!

Our Value and Virtue for this half term is:

Compassionate & Loving

 

 

Pupils in a school in the Archdiocese of Birmingham are growing to be...

Compassionate towards others, near and far,

especially the less fortunate; and loving by their just

actions and forgiving words.

Schools in the Archdiocese of Birmingham help their pupils grow…

By being compassionate and loving in the way pupils are treated, especially when a pupil is in trouble; and by opening pupils’ eyes to those who suffer poverty, injustice or violence

FOR THE TERMINALLY ILL

Grant, O Lord of life, that we may savour every season of our lives as a gift filled with promise for the future. Grant that we may lovingly accept your will, and place ourselves each day in your merciful hands. And when the moment of our definitive “passage” comes, grant that we may face it with serenity, without regret for what we shall leave behind. For in meeting you, after having sought you for so long, we shall find once more every authentic good which we have known here on earth, in the company of all who have gone before us marked with the sign of faith and hope. Mary, Mother of pilgrim humanity, pray for us “now and at the hour of our death.” Keep us ever close to Jesus, your beloved Son and our brother, the Lord of life and glory. Amen!

Our Journey in Faith

Our journey in faith starts at home. As parents you are the first and most significant educators in your child’s life. By having your child baptised you have expressed your wish to have them brought up within the Catholic faith. Working closely together, forming a partnership between parents and the school, we aspire to nurture the unique qualities of each child and allow them to flourish and grow throughout their primary years.

Christ is present in our daily lives and through living out our mission statement Jesus said "Let the children come to me" We live and learn and love in His way. It is more than just part of the curriculum, it is the Catholic ethos that makes Holy Family Catholic School a special and inclusive environment where children can learn and grow, with the teachers that offer outstanding guidance and care to your children.

We aim to bring children closer to God by learning and understanding the teachings of Jesus, so that we all can lead a rich and fulfilling life, helping others and bringing ourselves closer to God. 

Through our RE curriculum and Sacramental preparation we guide children on their journey of faith. Each year group follows lessons planned from the Diocesan programme ‘Learning and Growing as God’s People’. Children take part in daily collective worship and regular liturgical assemblies, as well as celebrating Mass at Church.

In Year 3 children prepare to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation and Holy Communion, the Church works closely with parents during this time to reinforce the important role of parents within God’s family during these special celebrations.

Throughout Key Stage Two, pupils are supported and encouraged to become mature and responsible global citizens of the 21st Century. In their final year of Primary School, children prepare to become adults in the eyes of the church, by receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation. By accepting the Holy Spirit and renewing their baptismal promises, that were previous made for them, these young adults have the understanding and knowledge within them formed by the Catholic education they have experienced.

Academic excellence for all our children is one of our goals but we also nurture those special God given gifts which make your child unique.

We know that we can only do this by working in true partnership with parents. Holy Family is supported by our parish priest, Fr Pat Brennan, our families and by the parish community. Together we can ensure that Holy Family remains a very special place.
