Visions and Values

Choosing the right school for your child is vitally important. Most parents want a good education for their children, but they also want them to be happy and to feel safe and secure. At St. Bernadette’s we believe we can offer all these things. We pride ourselves on the broad, balanced and full Catholic education we provide from the Foundation Phase through to the end of Key Stage 2, and the high standards of the teaching and learning are a credit to the hard work of both staff and pupils. Equally we are also proud of the atmosphere of friendliness and co-operation which is always evident.


Many visitors to the school comment on the warm welcome they receive and the politeness and maturity of our pupils. Our recent Estyn Inspection Report of 2013 noted that, ‘Nearly all our pupils participate conscientiously in lessons and are keen to learn,’ and that ‘They demonstrate a high level of tolerance and respect towards each other.'


We do value our pupils and we believe that their time in school should be rewarding and fulfilling. This is evident in both of the school’s two recent inspections, by Estyn and the Archdiocese of Cardiff who commented that our ‘pupils have a strong sense of belonging and are proud of their school.’ More extracts from both of these inspections are included in the handbook.


If you have any queries or concerns please contact me at the school at any time – we have an open door policy.
