This five part model of a Christian community applies to all Catholic schools and Colleges in the Salford Diocese. It provides a model for understanding, evaluating and celebrating the tradition of Catholic education.



At Holy Family we:


Warmly Welcome everyone to our school as Jesus welcomes us to the family of God.

Place the Word of God at the centre of all we do.

Accept responsibility for the Welfare of each other as Jesus intended and reach out to those who need us.

Worship the Lord, our God, joyfully with all our hearts.

Be a Witness of a loving God, who is at the heart of all we do, by creating a happy atmosphere, lasting friendships and lifelong memories.
