St Teilo’s is a place of learning, formation and human flourishing in which we seek to nurture individuals so that they might have life in all its fullness (John 10:10). Our approach to pupil wellbeing holds at its centre a belief in the profound goodness of every child, whom God has made perfectly and purposefully.

This is our message to the children and young people we serve:

  • We believe in you.
  • We trust in you.
  • You are listened to.
  • You are cared for.
  • You are important.
  • You will succeed.

At St Teilo’s, we do not judge children until we know them. We do not underestimate children until we have challenged them. We do not talk about children until we have talked to them. Our role is no less than to provide an example of enduring love and kindness.

I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.
