Recognising its historic foundation, the school will preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with the Church at parish and diocesan level.
The school aims to serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith, and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers to all its pupils.
At Old Catton Church of England Junior School we believe that children learn best in a happy, and challenging and safe environment, so we encourage participation in a wide range of physical and creative learning opportunities within a broad balanced curriculum.
We recognise the differing needs of our children and aim to support and nurture them all in a Christian environment, to equip them with the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to meet their future challenges.
We believe that learning is a lifelong and developing process for both adults and children. Learning should be rewarding, achievable and an enjoyable experience.
We actively promote the benefits of a healthy lifestyle for all.
We believe that education should be a strong partnership between home, school and the community.
