St Walburga's Catholic Primary School

A Voluntary Academy

Our vision and mission

Our Vision

‘I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty’ (John 6:35)

[Jesus the ‘Bread of Life’ means He is essential for living life to the full [John 10:10]. A life not only satisfying my own needs and wants, or simply my life with others, but acknowledging God and growing in relationship with God, i.e. always trying to live by seeing things/people as God sees them]

Guided by the love of God, through abiding faith, St Walburga’s inspires a sense of togetherness. 

This supports the development of each unique child to achieve their full potential in an ever-changing society.

They become a witness of Christ to positively influence their own life and the lives of those around them throughout their journey with us, and beyond.
