Vision & Values

 “This is what we are about: We plant the seeds that will one day grow” – Saint Oscar Romero


Our Mission at St. Malachy's is to provide an enriching, high quality education, where we learn, love and grow with Christ at the centre, so that each individual feels nurtured and can achieve their full potential' in life. We care deeply about our families and our children. 

At St Malachy’s our families are diverse and enrich our wider community. Staff work exceptionally well with our children and their families by providing them with a school of which we can all be proud. We encourage everyone to contribute positively to the school, church, life in the local community and beyond. We are guided by our fundamental belief that every child bears the image of Christ and deserve to have the best that we can give. 

We are proud of our inclusive school and our nurturing approach to education.  We continue to grow together as an Attachment Aware and Trauma Informed school and recognise that working together in partnership with our families and having big dreams for our future is essential. We have a positive supportive staff team who listen and genuinely want to help when we can. With Christ at the centre of everything we do at St Malachy’s, we believe that the Catholic Virtues taught throughout the year will help all children to reach their full potential in all that they do. Using the expertise of the excellent teachers in our school, we provide unique and exciting opportunities for our pupils, and develop a sense of confidence and pride in every member of our community. 

We will ensure that our school supports children to become life-long learners and to make a positive difference in an ever-changing world as Christ taught us. We strongly believe that school is the opportunity for children to continue upon their positive journey through life with strong foundations and we are looking forward to seeing your children flourish here. We are excited to come into school every day and want to ensure that your child feels the same.
