The Gospel Values, drawn from the Beatitudes, are central to life at Endsleigh. They can be seen clearly in the way that we treat each other and the importance that we place on strong, caring relationships. High expectations of, and aspirations for, each other are vital in ensuring that everyone in our school community becomes the absolute best that they can be. As a Catholic school, we aim for everyone to reach their true potential, not only academically, but also spiritually, socially and emotionally.
As a school community our mission to ‘Inspire, Learn, Achieve and Grow' is at the heart of everything we do!
In all of our classrooms and in the communal areas of our school, you will find our Sacred Spaces. These are special areas used for prayer and collective worship, allowing staff and children to stop and find God wherever they may be.
As part of our call to be like Jesus, we help others through charitable works. This year, it has been more important than ever to reach out to those in need and to show that we care. We have missed the community that makes us who we are and therefore, we tried to find ways to make sure that people knew we were thinking of them.
We celebrated International Kindness Day and made it our mission to fill people's buckets with happiness remembering that a little action or a kind word goes a long, long way.
At Christmas, all of our children decorated hearts and we sent them to our local care homes to let their residents know that we were thinking of them. Alongside the rest of our Academy Trust, we collected items for 'Hats for Seafarers' and were able to put a smile on the faces of many seafarers away from their families at Christmas time.
Fr William and Fr Peter ensured that some of our parish housebound received prayer cards reminding people that we kept them close to our hearts at a difficult time.
Each day during Lent, we had a special prayer intention and an accompanying Act of Kindness. We appealed for our families to send in an item for the Food Bank but as always, they went above and beyond and we were inundated with bags of food that we were able to take to two local churches: The Vineyard and Hull Community Church.
