Catholic Life

The Catholic Life of our academy is integral to all we do at St. Bernadette’s Catholic Primary Voluntary Academy. Through walking in the footsteps of Jesus Christ; following the example of Our Lady of Lourdes and Saint Bernadette, all children begin a journey with us, during which they will grow and mature, blossom and flourish. As they develop, the children are encouraged to put their faith into practice in their own lives.


‘Striving for excellence in all that we do, reflecting the Light of Christ to the world.’ 


Our academy motto expresses our enduring commitment to endeavor for excellence. Our intent is to enable our children to achieve high academic standards, rooted in the gospel values of Jesus Christ. Our Cornerstone Values of Love, Virtue and Goodness, Prayer and Service, Radiance, Joy, Wonder, and Excellence lie at the heart of daily life in our academy, enabling children to fulfil their God-given potential, and so prepare them to contribute positively to society in service of others.
