Values & Ethos

As a Church in Wales school, we place great emphasis on respect for the individual. Every child is special and unique, as stated in our Vision – Where Everyone Shines!

Within the acronym SHINES are six important values which we believe make St. Monica’s a special place to learn and grow.  We support everyone in our school community to be:

Successful – all our children can achieve and find success in something 

Happy – we aim for all members of our school community to feel safe and happy

Included – we are all special to each other and to God 

Nurtured – everyone in the school community will be cared for and encouraged

Evolving – we are constantly learning and moving forward in a positive way

Spiritual - everyone is supported to explore their spirituality through reflection, peace and prayer

Our aim is that every pupil achieves their best. Every member of staff, whether a teacher or member of support staff, is part of the team. Every parent is encouraged to work with us in partnership. On entering St. Monica's, you will quickly appreciate that this is our approach to education.
