Our School Improvement Plan is carefully designed to provide a focus on the Gospel values that underpin all that we do, and that drive our mission to become an outstanding school. Its principles are epitomised in the words above the entrance to our Chapel corridor: Be it known to all who enter here that Christ is the reason for this school.
The plan’s key priorities focus upon reducing gaps in attainment by developing best practice, removing barriers to learning, and creating a teaching and learning culture that supports students to fulfil their God given potential. Particular focus is afforded to vulnerable groups, in witness to Christ’s words from Matthew’s Gospel, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
Our intention is to support young people towards success throughout their time at St John Payne Catholic School and beyond, growing towards rewarding and fulfilling futures that see them witness our faith in their wider contributions to society.
