Welcome to Our Lady & St Patrick's!
A good education comes from a partnership between home and school; your children are on a lifelong journey of learning and we are privileged that Our Lady & St Patrick's is where that journey begins.
We are delighted to be welcoming you to Our Lady & St Patrick's Catholic Primary School. Ours is a very happy and harmonious school community, where parents, staff and governors work together to achieve the very best for our children.
Our Lady & St Patrick's provides an outstanding education, and the shared dedication of our wonderful staff team is a key factor in maintaining our excellent standards; we want our pupils to learn, to grow and to achieve their full, unique potential.
We focus upon building self-esteem and confidence so that success can be achieved spiritually, morally and academically. We value and nurture each child as a unique and precious individual and we are committed to high attainment for all our learners.
We are a vibrant and caring school community, serving our local parish and providing a curriculum which is rich, diverse and engaging. Our children experience an array of excellent learning opportunities, including professional tuition in Spanish, Dance, Music and Sport. In addition, our children have many other interesting and exciting educational opportunities, including trips, visits and visitors into school, to further enrich their learning.
Our Lady & St Patrick's provides a nurturing and inclusive learning environment, where all children enjoy coming to school every day. We also maintain a relentless focus on effective teaching and learning, which is reflected in our excellent SATS results. We have the highest expectations of all our pupils, and expect every child to demonstrate outstanding levels of attendance, courtesy, respect and hard work - all of the attributes which enable children to thrive in our school.
We work closely with all our families, to ensure the very best outcomes for every child, working together to build the best foundations for a true education. We aim to build open, co-operative and positive relationships between home and school, with parents and carers as active partners in their children’s education.
As our School Mission Statement states "we recognise Christ in everyone, as we grow together in faith and love, to serve our community" - at Our Lady & St Patrick's, everyone is encouraged to contribute to the life of the school and to those wider communities to which we belong. We aim to provide our young people with the wide range of skills necessary to enable them to make a valuable contribution to an ever-changing world, in which they will be able to grow and flourish.
As you browse through this site, you will discover that Our Lady & St Patrick's is an outstanding school in every way. We do hope you decide to join us, and we look forward to getting to know you and your children, as they embark on their exciting learning journey through our lovely school!
