Catholic schools within the Archdiocese of Birmingham must ensure that as part of their Catholic teachings, values and virtues are now a key focus. The values and virtues show how pupils are growing in their faith as well as how schools help their pupils to grow. Schools can really emphasise a particular pair of words throughout a half term. Each half term the focus will change. It is the intention that across the whole of the Archdiocese , schools will focus upon the same pair of virtues at the same time. This will enable us to share ideas and resources and strengthen our common bond.
