Overview

St Agnes is a voluntary aided Catholic Primary School situated in the Parish of St Agnes’ Cricklewood, London borough of Barnet, under the auspices of the Diocese of Westminster.  We are an ‘all through’ primary school with a nursery unit on site.  All classes at St Agnes’ are of mixed ability and due to the 1.5 form of entry, there are two mixed aged group classes throughout the school.

The fundamental aim of our school is to be a high achieving Catholic community, living out the gospel values in all that we do.  Our mission statement ‘The family of St Agnes lives, loves and learns together as followers of Jesus’ is central to our existence and underpins every aspect of school life.

About Us

St Agnes’ is a very happy and successful school, where children are encouraged to give of their best at all times.  We recognise that each child is an individual and we work to ensure that the academic potential of each is met, whilst nurturing faith – therefore developing the whole child.

We are proud of our strong relationship with the Parish and the local community.  St Agnes’ is fortunate in having a dedicated group of parents, known as FOSA (friends of St Agnes), who work tirelessly to support our fundraising efforts to enhance the provision for all our children.  Partnerships with parents are essential and key to children’s success at school, thus the school actively encourages parental support in a variety of ways.

Excellent standards are achieved through high expectations, self- belief, support, challenge, encouragement and praise.  It is our aim to provide this for every child, enabling their primary school years to be a memorable experience, whilst equipping them with the desire, understanding, skills and confidence to be life- long learners and responsible citizens of the future.  

'The family of St Agnes loves, learns and grows together as followers of Jesus.'

Our mission statement is clearly understood by all - it gives our school purpose and upon this we aim to build our ethos. We firmly believe that wherever you are in our school you will see our mission statement being lived - in class, in the playground and in our interactions and love of each other.

Diocese of Westminster

 

The Diocese of Westminster is one of the smallest dioceses in England and Wales in geographical area, but the largest in terms of Catholic population and priests. The diocesan boundaries include the London Boroughs north of the River Thames, between the River Lea to the East, the Borough of Hillingdon to the West, and including the County of Hertfordshire to the North.

Our school has its own distinctive mission statement which expresses its shared sense of purpose. The family of St Agnes loves, learns and grows together as followers of Jesus.

Fundamental to that purpose is the belief that every person is made in the image and likeness of God and finds fulfilment in God alone. Our mission is to seek the ongoing development of every pupil and young person and to promote their well-being and freedom. This vision shapes the daily life of the Catholic school as a community in which faith is expressed and shared through every aspect of its activity.

Through the pattern of daily prayer, through the celebration of the sacraments of the Church, through works of charity, through a striving for justice in all it does, our school seeks to be a catechetical community in which the content of the life of faith is shared. To fulfil the mission of their school, our school governing body seek to engage enthusiastic and committed teachers to provide leadership, inspiration and challenge to their pupils and students. 

Our school has strong links with the Diocese through school visits to Westminster, SPEC, TenTen Theatre, Courses for both teaching and non- teaching staff.

The Education Service provides professional support for our School, support for our Head Teacher and our Governing Bodies. Mr Corcoran, our RE Advisor also visits regularly to discuss RE in the curriculum with both the Head Teacher and Subject Leader.

Many resources can be found on the RCDOW website to support teaching and learning.

The Diocesan Policy on Religious Education (2012) commits the Diocese to support schools in implementing the requirements of the Curriculum Directory and other norms of the Bishops’ Conference. In recent years this Diocesan support has focussed on agreeing and developing a fuller understanding of the national Levels of Attainment and in improving the teaching of Scripture.
