We believe that every pupil at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School can achieve high standards in a happy, calm, welcoming and safe environment. Good communication between staff, children and parents will enable effective conditions for learning and high expectations for every pupil in a school that values pupils’ spiritual and physical health and nurtures their self-esteem.
Children will be listened to and heard. Teachers will use assessment and feedback to maximise individual learning. Teachers will be highly professional and aim to be outstanding practitioners. They will have time and opportunity to improve their practice.
Our curriculum will be innovative, stimulating and well resourced. It will fit our children’s needs and be supported by visits and visitors to develop pupils into lifelong learners.
The school building will be kept in good repair to allow pupils to learn effectively.
Children will have the opportunity to access extra-curricular activities and the chance to take on responsibilities.
In partnership with our parish we will teach our pupils to respect and help each other, embracing differences and to follow the principles of Catholic social teaching so that they recognise that people are more important than things and that we must support the poor and vulnerable in society. We will have clear and consistent expectations of behaviour based on strong moral values centred on our faith and a zero tolerance of bullying.
We will celebrate our achievements and be proud of our successes.
‘Living and sharing the message of Christ, in peace we move forward together.’
