Our Vision, Values and Aims

Our vision - Within the community of Holy Cross Primary we are engaged in the pursuit of excellent attainment and achievement for all our pupils. At the heart of our shared vision will be the provision of the highest quality of teaching and learning, the promotion of health and wellbeing and the care and welfare of all learners. The four capacities from Curriculum for Excellence underpin this vision.  This provision will take place within an inclusive, nurturing, Catholic ethos where positive attitudes to diversity will continue to thrive.  The fulfilment of our vision will be facilitated by partnerships with parents, Holy Cross Church, local and wider communities and other agencies.
