Catholic Social Teaching principles are rooted in Scripture as well as in messages from Church leaders.
Volunteers from CAFOD visited us in school to talk to us about Catholic Social Teaching.
Everyone is special – beautifully made in the image and likeness of God.
Our children are very proud to be part of Holy Spirit Catholic Academy and demonstrate a great sense of belonging. At Holy Spirit, we see ourselves as a family – a loving community where all are welcome, and the uniqueness of each individual is recognised, valued and celebrated. We aim to ensure that every child is provided with the opportunities needed to reach their full potential.
The Common Good.
Thinking of everyone – working for the good of each and of all.
Taking part – participating fully in the life of the school and in society.
Everyone should have a say – empowering everyone to have a voice.
Caring for God’s world – looking after our planet as guardians of God’s creation.
Option for the poor.
Putting people who are in most need first – looking after those who are poor or vulnerable.
Showing we care – supporting others in school and around the world.
Sharing fairly – making sure everyone has a fair share of resources.
Being peacemakers – seeking justice and peace for all.
