School Values, Vision and Ethos
Our vision at St. Bartholomew's Catholic Primary School is to create a Christian environment which caters for the individual academic, social and spiritual needs of each child within a caring school family in which all individuals are valued and respected as much for their differences as for their similarities.
We promote values and attitudes of the highest standard which allow each child to reach their full potential.
We strive to develop children's interests and talents and to equip each child with the tools they need for the future.
The dignity and value of our children is at the centre of everything we do
