Our Mission (the today)
In God’s Love, Together We Flourish
St. Catherine’s is a caring Church of England Primary School in Horwich, Bolton. We are a family community with Christian Values at the heart, where adults and children genuinely care for one another.
We provide a rich and stimulating curriculum that inspires and challenges all to achieve.
We teach our children to be excellent Christian role models for the future world.
We are inclusive, respectful and celebrate global diversity.
We provide excellent care, guidance and support to enable our children to keep themselves happy, healthy and safe in their adult lives.
We educate children on the importance of their well-being today and in their future.
Our Vision (the tomorrow)
We aim to be a flourishing learning community, which celebrates all possibilities through a journey of exploration, engagement and enrichment, enabling all to take risks, build resilience and grow together in God’s love. Jesus said ‘I have come that you may have life in all its fullness’. We hold this at the heart of all we do.
We aim to provide a loving and inclusive environment that encourages every student to live life in all its fullness, just as Christ intended. We believe that every pupil has the potential to succeed, and our aim is to help them develop the knowledge, skills, and values they need to become independent and responsible individuals, ready to make a positive contribution to their local community and society as a whole.
Our Christian values underpin everything we do, and we encourage all pupils to build a strong relationship with God that brings reassurance and support through all aspects of their lives. We strive to create a caring and supportive school community where everyone feels valued, respected, and listened to, and where everyone has the opportunity to achieve their full potential.
At St. Catherine’s, we believe that by providing a high-quality education that is focused on ‘life in all its fullness’, we are preparing our pupils to become confident, compassionate, and well-rounded individuals who are well-equipped to lead fulfilling lives and contribute positively to society.

· Highly principled with moral, spiritual, cultural and social awareness, including shared British Values.
