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, based on the values of living life through Christ. The quality and dedication of the staff team who work at the school is an essential factor in maintaining our excellent standards; we want our pupils to learn, to grow and to be inspired by Gospel values, so that they can reflect God's love in their everyday lives. We focus upon building self-esteem and confidence so that success can be achieved spiritually, morally and academically. We are committed to high attainment for all our learners, and we value and nurture each child as a unique and precious individual.
We are a vibrant school community, serving our local parish and providing a curriculum which is rich, diverse and engaging. Our children have a vast array of excellent learning opportunities including professional tuition in Spanish, Dance, Music and Sport.
We work hard to provide a welcoming and inclusive learning environment, striving to ensure that children enjoy coming to school every day. We also maintain a relentless focus on effective teaching and learning, which is reflected in our SATS results. We have the highest expectations of all of our pupils, and expect every child to demonstrate outstanding levels of attendance, appearance, courtesy, respect and hard work, throughout their time in our school.
We strive to develop open, co-operative and positive relationships between home and school, with parents and carers becoming active partners in their children’s education. This partnership is crucial for the growth and development of our children; where such relationships exist, then the best foundations for a true education have been laid. We work closely with all our families, to ensure the very best outcomes for every child.
Our school Mission Statement declares that '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.
