Headteacher’s Letter

Dear Parents

There is little doubt that Our Lady & St Werburgh’s is a special place for children to learn and grow. At Our Lady & St Werburgh’s we provide a secure, safe and happy environment where every child is valued as an individual; is recognised for their unique talents and is accepted for who they are.

At Our Lady & St Werburghs we share your desire to provide the very best education for the children in our school. We believe that every child is special and unique and we are passionate about providing high quality learning experiences through an engaging and inspiring curriculum, which is rich in opportunities to develop not only academically but also to develop creatively, physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Our strong Catholic ethos underpins the relationship between parents, staff and pupils and brings all members of our special community to deepen their faith and life of service
Our aim is to develop our pupils to reach their full potential and we believe that it is important to celebrate the achievements of the whole child. This is reflected in our excellent academic achievement and success in many sporting and musical events, placing the school amongst the very best in the country.

Please contact the school office if you require any further information, we always welcomes an opportunity to speak to you.

Yours sincerely,

Mr B Grove

Mission Statement

Our Mission Statement is grounded in the belief that our school must be a Christian community, where the Catholic faith is not only taught but lived, this being reflected not only in the way we, the teachers, treat the children, but also how the children behave towards one another.

The guiding principles by which our school is run are the Gospel values which underlie the relationships which exist within the school, where each person is valued and is seen as a reflection of Christ’s love for each and everyone of us.

We believe that our school should provide a grounding in the Catholic faith for our children and that we can only truly succeed if there is a partnership between the school, the home and the parish.  A feature of this partnership to be the quality and care extended to all its members.  We also seek to be of service to the local community and beyond.

We believe that the curriculum we offer our pupils is a service to every individual pupil, preparing them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.
