Our faith is very important to all members of the school community. It permeates all aspects of school life and remains central to our everyday living.
Our mission statement says:-
St George’s Catholic Primary is a faith community founded on Gospel values, in which a love for learning and life are promoted.
Through a safe and caring environment, all members of the school community are given opportunities to use and display their talents, whist following in the footsteps of Jesus Christ.
Achieve, Believe, Care
We will strive to ensure that the members of our community are happy and fulfilled in their lives at school.
LITURGY AND COLLECTIVE WORSHIP
At St George’s the children are involved in liturgical experiences both within school and in the wider community.
Fr. Brian, our Parish Priest, celebrates Mass with pupils, staff and parents on a weekly basis either in the school hall or classroom. Our pupils not only take part in the various acts of worship but play a vital role in the delivery of these.
The school follows the Archdiocese of Birmingham’s “Learning and Growing as the People of God” Curriculum Strategy.
Pupils are prepared for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Communion in Year 3 and in Year 6 for Confirmation. The children complete their Sacramental preparation at St George’s church led by a team of Catechists. In addition to this, the children are well supported through this important time in their faith journey by the school, as Sacramental work is completed in line with our RE Curriculum.
