Philosophy Statement

At Columba our aim is to develop an environment of spiritual, academic, emotional and physical wellbeing for each student.

At Columba we believe:

  • In providing quality Religious Education that enables students to deepen their faith.
  • That each child is entitled to a comprehensive curriculum that acknowledges that all children learn differently and can achieve.
  • In providing engaging learning experiences and a positive environment which encourages and challenges students to take responsibility for their own learning.
  • In providing a welcome, friendly and safe environment where everyone is respected and treated fairly and justly.
  • In acknowledging the vital role of parents in the education of their children.
  • In building on the partnership that exists between school families, parish and the wider community.
