Spiritual Life

Actions speak louder than words; let your words teach and your actions speak.”

St. Anthony of Padua.

Ivy House School will be a non-denominational school from September, open to all families of all faiths and none. Despite being a non-denominational school, we seek to interact with and inform pupils about other faith communities in order to prepare our pupils to take their place in today’s multi-ethnic, multi-cultural society, mindful of the needs of others at home and in the world around us.

We also fully recognise our responsibilities to existing families who are Catholic. In consultation with the Diocese of Westminster, we have put together a plan which will enable the school to continue to look after Catholic families in a meaningful way, whilst no longer being a Catholic school. Ivy House School will be happy to share these plans with any other families who are Catholic, and who may be considering this school in the future for their children.

Our values encompass everything we do as a community. In our day to day life, pupils are encouraged to recognise the importance of their own ethics and beliefs, as well as the beliefs of others. We will continue to seek to provide pupils with a rich ethical and spiritual life in school, out of school and in the wider community, and engage and involve pupils, parents, staff and governors in this.

We believe in a partnership between home and school and actively encourage parental involvement.
