A Welcome Message from our Head Teacher
It is my great pleasure, on behalf of the children, governors and staff, to welcome you to the family of St. Ambrose Roman Catholic Primary School in Chorlton.
We hope that the information provided on our website will help you to gain an understanding of our expectation for high standards, our school mission and of our Gospel values.
St Ambrose is a happy, vibrant, multicultural and multi-faith community with a strong commitment to ensure that Christ is at the centre of all we do.
Working in partnership with the parish of St. Ambrose Barlow and with parents and carers, we aim to provide an excellent education for all pupils living in our community. We have a welcoming, dedicated and caring staff, all of whom endeavour to provide the finest educational experiences, a broad and balanced curriculum, creativity and challenge and a wide range of exciting opportunities for every child to reach their full potential.
We continue to teach the children to follow the path of Jesus through our Mission. Everyone at St Ambrose understands that growing in the love of God and His creation, learning in hope and faith and living the mission statement is the strength of what we are.
In developing the 'whole' child, our holistic and inclusive approach towards education provides a foundation for us to grow life-long learners. We want to ensure that each child has the opportunity to grow in self-confidence and develop themselves through healthy engagement with risk, problem-solving and self-discovery. The children will aspire to the same goals in life, but everyone's journey is different with its own details. We believe that knowledge, questioning and communicating come together as a basis of a great education and support the children to discover the path in which they seek.
Loving hands (A can-do education) nurture creativity and problem solving, applying knowledge and conceptual understanding to new situations. We encourage at every age the development of pupils' voices and ultimately produce advocates for change in a modern and challenging world.
Loving hearts (A character education) from which young people can develop a set of ethical underpinnings, well-honed character traits of resilience, kindness and tolerance and a subtle open mind.
Loving minds (An academic education) that give our children in-depth subject knowledge of key concepts and ways of thinking.
This approach supports our UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools Gold Award that every child has 'a right to an education.' Our staff teach the children to have high expectations and pride in themselves, have mutual respect and accept others, show their exceptional and unique gifts and talents, build confidence to persevere and have belief that they can succeed.
We are extremely proud of our school; a fabulous learning environment for all our children and staff.
We always look forward to welcoming our parents, grandparents, carers, friends, governors and visitors to our wonderful school.
Mrs M Waterworth and the team at St Ambrose.
