Our Mission Statement
St Cecilia’s Catholic Infant and Nursery School strives to be a family community, inspired by the teachings of Christ where each individual is valued, nurtured and encouraged to reach their full potential.
Living together, Loving together, Learning together
We aim to create a welcoming environment and foster a meaningful Catholic ethos which involves the home and parish community in the life of the school.
We aim to provide a child centred broad based curriculum which enables children to fully develop their talents, gifts and skills.
We aim to nurture confidence and self-esteem.
We aim to inspire curiosity and encourage empathy for the global family communities.
We will achieve our aims by:
- Delivery of the ‘Come and See’ Religious Education Programme.
- All adults presenting as good role- models showing respect to each other.
- Providing opportunities to celebrate God’s presence through prayer and reflection.
- Use of positive praise, encouragement and school rewards to celebrate success.
- Encouraging parents and the local community to work in partnership through assemblies and celebrations.
- Participating in projects such as CAFOD and Nugent Care which promote understanding and empathy for the wider world.
‘Love One Another as I have Loved You’
Welcome to our Catholic Life page. Catholic life is central to all that we do and is a the forefront of our school calendar of events. From our initial prayer on the first INSET day of September, to the Year 2 leavers assembly at the end of the academic year; the catholic ethos is at the heart of all that we do.
We hope you will enjoy exploring all the different ways in which we celebrate our catholic faith throughout the year.

This Lent, to support the needs of remote learners, we’ve created a set of resources that can be uploaded to various teaching platforms. These faith-focused activity sheets include comprehension tasks and outdoor challenges, some of which can be used as Lenten fundraising drives. Download free at missiontogether/Lent.
|Lent begins on Wednesday 17 February, and to help schools journey prayerfully through the season, we’ve revised our annual Lent calendar and produced new weekly pupil-led liturgies. Each liturgy contains an adapted version of the Sunday Gospel, questions for discussion and reflection. Download at missiontogether/Lent.||
|Pope Francis has declared 2021, the year of St Joseph. We’re inviting schools to join our Week of Prayer, leading up to Friday 19 March (St Joseph’s feast day). Each daily prayer is modeled on a simplified version of the popular Mill Hill Missionaries’ Novena (St Joseph’s Missionary Society). This Week of Prayer resource complements our St Joseph Five Fact Assembly. Download here.|
|To help illustrate our Universal Church, God’s global family and mission, we’ve also created a Mission Together Virtual Map. It is a fun way for pupils to explore the world and discover how children across the globe pray and share their time, gifts and talents to be missionaries of God’s love too. Explore the map here.|
