Christ the King CVA

OUR MISSION

‘Christ the King welcomes everyone in our community as we share the joys of our Faith. We worship, learn and play together in the love of Jesus, helping one another to develop the talents given to us by God.’

 

Our school has a particular distinctiveness, in that it seeks to represent the Gospel teachings of Jesus Christ and the teachings of the Catholic Church in all that we do. We strive to develop the talents of every member of our community, and use our God-given gifts for the greater good.

Prayer, play and learning are at the forefront of our curriculum and shape the daily life of the school. All pupils are actively engaged in living out the mission every day and are shining examples of what it means to be a missionary disciple. Pupils show respect for themselves and each other as we were all made in the image and likeness of God. We respect each other’s divine uniqueness and thank God for making us special.

Our School Motto is ‘Believe and Achieve’, but what does this mean for our children and families?

At Christ the King, we believe:

  • God made the world and all of us, so we look after our world and love our neighbours as ourselves 
  • That God gave us all our gifts and talents, so we should use them and share them for the good of others
  • Christ is our King and is at the centre of our school community, guiding our decisions and helping us make the right choices 
  • That we should always try our best and use every opportunity to learn and grow

 

 

Mission Statement Awards

 

Each week, class teachers nominate one pupil who has lived out the School Mission Statement from their class.  We celebrate their successes by giving the children a big round of applause in assembly as well as a special sticker.

On the Infant Site we call this award our ‘Magnificent Missionaries’ and on the Juniors it is known as the ‘CTK Missionaries’’ award. 

We are incredibly proud of all of our children at Christ the King and particularly those who have been selected by their teacher for living out our School Mission Statement. Please see below for details of the children who have been chosen for the award this week and the reasons why they have been selected:
