OLAAS MAC Children's Charter
We Are All Saints… Children’s Charter
As a family of schools working collaboratively and bound by our faith, we have developed a charter to support our collective mission. The charter outlines the offer of all schools within the MAC and sits at the heart of our mission to provide high quality Catholic education for all our pupils.
In the most basic sense, a saint is a “holy one,” someone who is set apart for God’s special purposes. As a result, every follower of Jesus Christ can be a saint. By following the examples of the saints, we will guide, lead and teach our children to emulate their virtuous behaviours and to follow in their footsteps.
Our charter is arranged into the following principles:
•All Saints have a love for others,
• All Saints use their gifts wisely,
• All Saints are servants of Christ,
• All Saints are risk takers,
• All Saints have a love for the world around them.
The five sections set out a blueprint for the overall offer of experiences that our children and young people can expect to receive as they undertake their journey through each stage of both their primary and secondary school lives within Our Lady and All Saints Catholic MAC. It seeks to equip them to become active Christian citizens in their communities and across the world. We want every child and young person, following the example of Christ in his likeness and in his Gospel teachings, to leave school fully confident that, not only are they academically fulfilled but they have also experienced a wide range of activities enriching their hearts, minds and souls.
The principles of our charter will be explored and unpicked at focus points throughout the liturgical year but we’ll also be looking for and celebrating examples of saintly behaviours each and every day.
“The saints were not superheroes, nor were they perfect. When they recognised God’s love, they followed it and served others." Pope Francis
