Catholic Life at St. Hugh’s
Our Mission Statement underpins our vision for the Catholic Life of our school.
We work to provide a stimulating and interesting environment where children have the ability to develop their talents to their full potential.
We work to develop all children by widening their contribution to the life and work of the school, in partnership with parents and the parish community. This is done in accordance with the teachings of the Catholic Church.
We promote consideration and respect for all others regardless of race, culture, gender, disability or beliefs. This is strengthened by our links with charities such as CAFOD, Good Shepherd and Malawi.
We have a variety of celebrations such as masses, assemblies and musical events throughout the year. Children’s efforts and achievements are recognised, celebrated and rewarded regularly.
We welcome visitors into our school on a regular basis, including those of different faiths and beliefs.
We are developing links with the parish and other schools. Our Gospel Choir and joint ‘With You Always’ Sacramental Programme further strengthen links between our school and another school in the community.
All children take part in Collective Worship on a daily basis. Y6 children have the opportunity to develop spiritually and morally when they take part in a retreat.
Our ‘Be a Friend’ initiative enables new children to adjust quickly to life in our school as elected volunteers welcome them and provide support as they settle.

St Clare’s Roman Catholic Church
We visited St Clare’s Church and Father Aidan showed us all the different areas of the church and explained parts of a Baptism.
During our Easter celebrations, we recreated Jesus Christ’s washing the feet of the 12 disciples, highlighting his humility and love for all. We shared a ‘meal’ of bread and juice to represent The Last Supper.
Liverpool In Arms at Night is a local project, which provides meals and drinks as well as social support to Liverpool’s rough sleepers. At Christmas time we arranged a raffle and donated the money to this charity. Please see the response from the charity below.
‘Thank you for your kind donations of care items and the ones in which we had stated we needed and for raising a massive £300 pounds from a raffle which is amazing. As you may know Liverpool in Arms at night is a homeless organisation helping to feed and clothe the homeless of Liverpool. Without kind gestures such as this the organization would not be able to run efficiently. Your support will aid us in furthering our goals’.
Working with the Sisters from the Faithful Companions of Jesus
We have been working with Sister Maryann and Sister Marie from the Faithful Companions of Jesus (FCJ) who are located at the Presbytery of St Hugh, to plan our School Mass to honour St Hugh on his feast day.
The Feast of St Hugh of Lincoln
We invited local parishioners from St Clare’s and St Hugh to celebrate Mass with us to honour St Hugh on his feast day. Year 6 stayed after mass and had refreshments and chatted with our guests. These are some of the comments we received, ‘your children are lovely and so well behaved’, ‘this lot are smashing’, ‘the singing by the children was beautiful’ ‘it was a pleasure to meet with the staff and children afterwards’.
