Holy Rosary Catholic Voluntary Academy

Loving Heart – Strong Mind

Our Catholic Values

Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils to be confident, happy citizens.

Our Vision is to:


Build loving hearts and strong minds in union with God and each other.


With God’s help…


A  loving heart will:

value everyone with dignity and respect;

seek the happiness of others as well as their own;

recognise and challenge inequalities and unfairness.


A  strong mind will:

do what is right;

never give up;

always aim high.

Our Mission


Growing Ambition and Empowered individuals through an Exceptional Curriculum, Compassionate Support and Catholic Community.

Gospel Values


At Holy Rosary the Gospel Values are very important to us, as they guide and teach us how to follow in the footsteps of Jesus. During our most recent Feast day, each class were encouraged to reflect on what they felt each value meant.  


Hope             Love              Truth            Forgiveness             

Integrity             Support                    Compassion         

Humility  Justice         Non-violence        Simplicity      


The values are displayed in every class. Children are encouraged to 'Live out' these values in school and at home. Two values are given particular emphasis each half term. These are explored within class liturgies and made reference to during RE teaching. 


We hope that, in turn, learning and appreciating these Gospel values will help some of the older children in their RE, as well as their Catholic Life, to incorporate into their writing, helping them to make links and show an understanding of their beliefs.
