Vision Statement

Learners will leave Our Lady & St Patrick's Catholic Primary School, Maryport with a thirst for knowledge and a desire to learn. They will be physically healthy, with a caring and nurturing attitude and a creative and independent outlook.


Our values, principles and aims:

  • Provision of a Catholic education which is rooted in Gospel values.

  • Provision of a relevant, carefully structured curriculum for all learners, which builds on what children already know, takes account of individual learning preferences and ensures well-planned, purposeful activities for all.

  • A commitment to the virtues of truth, justice, honesty, tolerance, trust and a sense of duty.

  • A commitment to love God and our neighbour, recognising Christ in everyone.

  • An inclusive school, where all learners feel included, secure and valued, there is a commitment to every learner's success and there are high expectations and aspirations.

  • A commitment to making creative use of the range of learning opportunities available, within and beyond the classroom, including ICT.

  • Recognition of and provision for rapid development - physically, mentally, intellectually, emotionally, morally, spiritually and socially.

  • A belief that parents are co-educators and that we can ensure high-quality care and education for their children, whilst responding positively to the opportunities and challenges of the rapidly changing world.
