Vision and Values

Our Vision 

Happiness and a sense of belonging are the keys to success, and at St Monica Primary School we hold this at the heart of all we do. We have high expectations and aim to foster a love of learning. We are committed to providing a positive, safe and stimulating environment, that supports us in delivering memorable and purposeful learning experiences. At St Monica, we want to empower all the children to be the best they can be. This includes creating curious minds, encouraging a thirst for learning, a willingness to take risks and a sense of pride in their achievements.

We nurture all the children within our St Monica family and encourage them to be respectful of themselves, each other and of our community.
