The St John the Baptist Catholic MAT
Our vision is the provision and development of a world class community of schools, providing the highest possible care, support opportunities and outcomes for every child. Pupils are cherished for who they are, as much as for what they achieve, and all achievements are celebrated.
The Trust Directors will work closely with schools, their governors, staff, parents and the local community to develop together the successful young men and women of our future. We aspire for all our pupils to become valued citizens equipped with a vocation to serve their local community and global society.
The distinctive ethos of the MAT is founded on the Gospel values of faithfulness, humility, truth, forgiveness, tolerance, dignity, service and respect. They are at the heart of all we teach our young people and inform our 5 Core Principles:
Lead by Example: respect others as you would wish them to respect you
Strive for Excellence: be the best you can be in all you do
Education for All: with a particular duty of care for the poor and disadvantaged
Common Good: working in partnership and providing mutual support to benefit all
Service and Inclusiveness: reaching out to other schools requiring support
Our aim is for every school in the MAT to be outstanding in its outcomes, results and ethos and this to be seen most evidently in the young people as they move from each educational establishment as successful, rounded, ambitious, caring, moral and successful individuals to the next stage of their education and beyond.
