We try to live out our Mission Statement in all that we do.
Our aim at St. Anselm is to work together to encourage the children to reach their potential by developing their self- esteem, and recognising their individual talents and qualities and those of others, so that they will live their faith and be true disciples of Christ, contributing fully to their community.
As we place great importance on a high standard of pastoral care and aim to provide an environment where children can work and play free from any unnecessary anxiety, we promote and demand high standards of behaviour. Children are expected to be considerate and behave in a polite and caring manner towards each other and towards adults.
We aim to develop within children self–discipline and we achieve this by having a positive approach to behaviour management –– encouraging and praising good behaviour and getting children to think about how they behave.
Children wear school uniform at St Anselm and this requirement is very well supported by parents.
The aim of homework at St Anselm is to develop a disciplined approach to work, by setting tasks in school to be undertaken in the child’s own time at home. Homework is set on a regular basis, by the class teacher.
Written homework will be set by the class teacher from Year 3 onwards. Homework exercise books will be provided by the school.
St Anselm had a successful Ofsted inspection in June 2002. Inspectors noted the many strengths of the school, including high standards, good quality teaching, good provision for teaching Music, French and Science and good use of homework.
