All Saints Catholic College is a happy family of staff, pupils and parents working together to provide the best education to the young people of Tameside. We are a good school but we aspire to be a great school. Our motto is “Be Inspired. Be Excellent. Succeed” and at the core of our mission is a relentless drive to provide a great Catholic education for every child who comes to our school. Our mission statement sets out what we are trying to achieve but at its core is the goal that every child fulfils their ambitions and exceeds their expectations. As a school we have high expectations for what every one of our pupils can achieve, and a strong belief that we can inspire every child to excel in whatever they choose to do in their future. We do this within a culture that Ofsted described as vibrant, happy, joyful, purposeful and where everyone feels valued. This is why the personal development and welfare support we give our pupils was described as outstanding. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum which, we believe, is suited to the needs of our young people. But we are responsive and adaptive and we review our curriculum regularly so that it does meet the needs of our young people but also pushes them achieve and progress. We pride ourselves on being a family who work together on the All Saints Way. For us, that means giving 100% in everything we do but namely service, effort, behaviour, and attendance. We are, of course, a faith school and the teachings of Jesus Christ are at the heart of all we do whether that be in the curriculum or in the pastoral care of our young people. We firmly believe that all of our young people are the light of the world, and that their light should shine brightly and not be hidden. This is the message we give to our children. We inspire them to make the most of what they have been given as they themselves are gifts from God and made in the image of God. As an inclusive school which welcomes children's of different need, background and faiths we do try to adapt to each child and offer them the best educational experience but also tailored, where necessary, to their circumstance. I would hope that we successfully work with our families to make sure that we get the best from the children we serve and would welcome all future parents to come and see the school.
