Vision and Mission statements

VISION STATEMENT

Anfield is a Catholic School, where all are committed to creating a loving, caring and joy filled environment that is inspired by Jesus Christ. Anfield is a place where all children are challenged both academically and spiritually, and encouraged to achieve their full potential in all areas of life.

 

MISSION STATEMENT

Anfield International Kindergarten/Anfield School aims to:

  • Be a caring Catholic family school community, committed to the development of the full potential of all children, irrespective of their personal faith.
  • Educate boys and girls in the life of Catholic faith and encourage them towards a joyful, free, self-confident and self-disciplined life of faith and virtue.
  • Encourage the development in all students the qualities of personal responsibility, consideration, courtesy, tolerance and respect in their relationships with one another, their teachers, the wider community and the environment.
  • Work for excellence in all academic, cultural and sporting endeavours, stimulating excitement in learning and requiring discipline in study, whatever the ability of the child.
  • Encourage children to be self-motivated, to strive to do their best in everything they do and to have confidence to take risks. We ask much of their strengths and we support them in their weaknesses.
  • Encourage children in independent and critical thinking about the standards and values current in society and the global world and to discover and develop a personal faith to guide them throughout their lives.
