Catholic Social Teaching

As a school, we follow the Catholic Social Teaching Principles.  These are:

  • Family and Community
  • The Worker
  • The Poor and Needy
  • Caring for God’s Creation
  • Promotion of Peace
  • Working Together for Good
  • Right and Responsibilities
  • Dignity of the Human Person

These Catholic Social Teaching Principles come from Scripture, but also from the leaders of the Catholic Church.  By following these Principles, we are becoming people that God wants us to be.

Please watch this short video explaining what Catholic Social Teaching is:

Catholic Social Teaching Principles link with our class Saints as follows:

Class Saint Catholic Social Teaching Principle
Nursery The Holy Family Family and Community
Reception St Joseph The Worker
Year 1 St Mother Teresa of Calcutta The Poor and Needy
Year 2 St Francis of Assisi Caring for God’s Creation
Year 3 St Oscar Romero Promotion of Peace
Year 4 Blessed Carlo Acutis Working Together for Good
Year 5 St Vincent de Paul Rights and Responsibilities
Year 6 St Maximillian Kolbe Dignity of the Human Person


The Catholic Social Teaching Principles are taught throughout all subjects and links made to our own lives and the things we see around us.

Catholic Social Teaching is about the action we can take when we see social injustice.

We are currently working towards becoming a Live Simply school and our action plan can be found here:
