Our Mission Statement
We believe that Our Lady’s Catholic Primary School provides a true Catholic learning environment for the children entrusted to our care. The individual worth of all those who participate in the life of our school community is recognised and valued. We believe that Catholic education is fundamentally concerned with the growth towards our full potential and that talents and gifts should be developed for the good of the whole community. These beliefs are characterised and summarised through the Mission Statement:
It is a statement that expresses the values and standards expected in our school. In short, people matter; individual differences are respected; and everyone in the school is valued. Implicit in the aspiration of the Mission Statement is an emphasis on the distinctive Catholic nature and on educational attainment.
Our School Aims
- To offer a broad and balanced curriculum as we strive to prepare our children for life in modern Britain.
- To develop children’s joy and understanding of the Catholic faith enriching their lives with an understanding of the way Jesus showed us to live our lives.
- To provide a happy, secure and caring environment enabling high quality education to flourish.
- To build in our children high self-esteem and a strong sense of well being within a loving atmosphere, developing spiritually and emotionally in partnership with the home, parish and local community.
- To provide equal access to the curriculum sharing opportunities to explore, experiment and learn.
Jesus said, "Love one another as I have loved you"
These special words are quickly learnt by all the children who attend Our Lady's Catholic Primary School and we hope that all parents soon realise that this care is extended to them as much as the children. We know that children thrive best with love and care in their world and we hope that we provide a happy, secure and caring environment for them. Children who know that their parents feel happy with their school will be happy to come to school and we aim to provide all parents with the best possible information and support that we can.
Blue Butterfly – please remind your child if they have a problem, no matter how small, it is important to tell an adult in school straight away. We sometimes get butterflies in our tummy if something makes us worried so tell an adult and we will try and help. Mrs O’Neill, Mr Robinson and Miss Gribble are the Designated Safeguarding Team.
