As a Catholic Primary School, St Anthony’s’ works hard to develop and sustain the school’s Catholic distinctiveness. We work in close partnership with Fr Antony Chundelikkat and the parish of St Anthony’s, the west Hull parishes, as well as other schools in the Diocese of Middlesbrough: especially the family of schools in the St Cuthbert’s Catholic Multi Academy Trust. Our Directors represent Bishop Drainey and work tirelessly in order to nurture the school’s Catholic ethos and ensure faith is manifested through every aspect of school life.
At St Anthony’s’ we work closely with the St Cuthbert’s Chaplaincy team to support both local and global charities and organises through fund raising and raising awareness of the vital work that they do.
We also have a duty to foster an accurate and increasing understanding of religions and world views. As a result, pupils will gain greater insight into the world in which they are growing up. They will also be able to appreciate the faith of others and develop a deeper understanding of their own beliefs and practices.
These outcomes contribute to harmonious relationships within and between communities, promoting social inclusion and overcoming prejudice. We plan enrichment days to support the children with this and encourage our children to be good and positive citizens in the community in which they live as well as looking after our common home- The Earth.
We believe that the Catholic Education that we offer at St Anthony’s’ develops the potential of each child. We share responsibility, along with parents and our parish community, for the education of our children and young people. This follows the African proverb of ‘it takes a village to raise a child’. Together we can bring God’s Kingdom here to Hull and help make bright futures for our children.
A parent’s guide to prayer
Praying is an important part of our school life. We pray at the start of the school day, before meals and at the end of the day. The only way to get really good at praying is to pray. Our invitation to you as parents is to help your children to pray at home as well as school.
This easy to read booklet guides you as a parent through all the things that you need to know about praying at home with your child. If you have any further questions then do not hesitate to contact your class teacher.
