Blessed Robert Widmerpool Catholic Voluntary Academy is an outstanding school situated in Clifton and is part of the Corpus Christi parish. We are part of the Our Lady of Lourdes Multi-Academy Trust. It is a Catholic school where Christian Values underpin every aspect of school life. Our Mission Statement outlines how these values influence our aims and guide our work together.

Our Mission Statement is:  “We walk kindly in the footsteps of Jesus Christ as we live and learn.”

The school aims to create a happy and secure environment where all children can reach their potential – spiritually, morally, culturally, physically and academically.  Children are encouraged to be responsible for their own actions, and a culture of independence and respect is promoted through our core values.  Blessed Robert Widmerpool promotes its Catholic ethos through stimulating and creative liturgical worship.

Our School Prayer:

This is our school, Let peace be found here.
May the rooms be full of happiness.
Let love dwell here, Love for one another,
Love of life itself and the love of God.
Let us remember that as many hands are needed to build a house,
So many hearts are needed to build a school.

The curriculum of the school, underpinned and inspired by the teachings of the Catholic Church, recognises that each child is a unique and valued individual. The curriculum promotes respect for the views of each individual child, as well as for people of all cultures. Each child is respected and treated with fairness and honesty. Equal opportunities for all children enables all in the school community to reach their full potential.

The curriculum is all the planned activities organised to promote learning and personal growth and development.  It includes not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but also the range of extra-curricular activities that the school organises in order to enrich the experience of the children.  It also includes the ‘hidden curriculum’ – what the children learn from the way that are treated and expected to behave.

Building Learning Power involves developing the behaviours a child will need to face challenge calmly, confidently and creatively and as a result, give them the life skills that they need for their journey through school and into the real world. The way that the school teaches these behaviours is through the 5Rs which include:

  • Responsibility
  • Resilience
  • Resourcefulness
  • Relationships
  • Reflectiveness

Whether you are one of our current families, pupil, friend or neighbour we hope you find this website informative and easy to use and we welcome feedback so we can continue to improve.

  2. Pup Academy
    Pup Academy is we’re pups become dogs.
    The pups who were picked to go to this unknown place were corazon,whiz and spark they all got tags from D.O.G.D.OG is the dog who picks the pups who go to the academy. Even though spark was a stray D.O.G thought she could learn something new.Every time someone blows the whistle all of the hightronds glow so the pups can go threw the portals. These tags are no ordinary tags they help the puppies get to the academy also humans can’t see these tags. The whistle is so pups can get to the academy on time and humans can’t hear the whistle. The only people who knew about the academy were Morgan, his grandpar and is mum.When the pups got there there was a dog called Pom Pom.Pom Pom was the leader of their house the howlers.Pom Pom showed corazon,whiz and spark the whole school when corazon shouted omg lockers .Oncethey had looked at the school they went to assembly they also had front row seats but was next to a bully bite . After assembly they went to play fetch ball. They were against the growlers . They didn’t do so well but they might the second time.

    • What a great story! I love that you have been inspired by both dogs AND schools!
      Well done!
