Mission Statement

 

Our Lady’s School embraces the uniqueness of each child through God’s message of love.

 

In our Catholic school family of Our Lady’s, the search for excellence is expressed in our learning and teaching which responds to the needs and aspirations of our pupils and acknowledges their individual worth as holy children. We see each child as ‘unique’ through God’s message of love.  

 

“A good school provides a rounded education for the whole person. And a good Catholic school, over and above this, should help all its students to become saints.”

Holy Father addressing schools in the Big Assembly, Twickenham, London, Friday 17th September 2010

Vision

Rooted in Christ, instructed by the teaching of the Catholic Church and inspired by the life of Jesus, the governors and the staff of Our Lady’s are committed to ensuring that the school becomes a flourishing centre of Catholic Lifelong Learning. We are dedicated to inspiring and forming young people, who are not only academically accomplished but who are spiritually alert, culturally developed and able to contribute effectively as Christians in the communities in which they live. In our school we serve, learn and love alongside one another.

 At the heart of the community we value positive partnerships to enhance lifelong learning. We work in partnership with, and actively seek and listen to the views of, all our stakeholders for the good of our children. We share the need for self evaluation and continual working together for school improvement in order to achieve high academic standards and to respond to the challenge of expressing their God-given gifts.  We develop our children and our school in response to changing educational needs.
