Catholic Social Teaching

Rooted in Love is a new project set up by the Diocese of Westminster to support schools in their teaching journey through the Catholic Social Teaching Principles. These are to be explored on a half-termly basis and will be supported through a range of activities, assemblies, and additional work to help increase our contributions towards the charities we support.

Catholic Social Teaching is:

The underlying insight is that everyone has the right and responsibility to live in our world constructively, not destructively, and to ensure that we leave it in a better state than when we entered it.

At the core of Catholic Social Teaching are a number of concepts and principles. The chief among these are Care of Creation, Preferential Option for the Poor, Solidarity and Peace, Community and Participation, Dignity of Workers, and Human Dignity.

Please see our yearly overview for Catholic Social Teaching across the school.
