"Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire." (St.Catherine of Siena)
At Keyham Barton Catholic Primary School, we strive to provide an education that excites and empowers our children to be the best person they were meant to be. Our faith means we treat every child as sacred: our aim is excellence and love for each and every one of them. We encourage them to find and develop their own individual gifts so that they can lead happy, dignified and purposeful lives of their own choosing. Life is for living and we want all of our children to grab it with both hands - with love, self-respect, respect for others and the world, and a smile. Now, and in the future.
Our school is renowned for its warm and caring atmosphere. Visitors often comment on our children's confidence, resilience and independence as well as the supportive way we all work together to build a school of which we are all proud. Our ethos has its foundation in the Catholic faith, but we have members of all faiths and none in our school family. All are welcome. Jesus said, "I have come so that you may have life...and live it to the full." We develop a fullness of life for all of our children, regardless of belief, religion or creed.
It is in our power to shape our children's chances in life and look after and improve the community in which we live, work and grow. For this reason, we believe in the importance of home, school and parish working in partnership so that any decisions made that involve our children and our community, present and future, are made together.
