Ethos and Values
Our Lady's School is a Voluntary Aided School established by the Diocese of Northampton. The Bishop appoints most of the governors who are charged with ensuring the school is well managed, efficient and run true to Catholic principles. The governors employ the staff and are responsible for the buildings and site. They are assisted by the Local Education Authority who make finance available to the school every year in order to provide funds for staffing and resources costs. As a Catholic school there is a strong Christian ethos. We put emphasis on the learning of spiritual values and religious knowledge. We offer a broad curriculum fulfilling the requirements laid down by the 1988 and 1995 Education Acts allowing our children to learn a wide range of academic, practical and sporting skills and knowledge. It is our aim to educate each child, as a unique individual, within a school community, to achieve high standards and fulfil her/his potential. We seek to provide equal opportunities for all our pupils regardless of gender, race, social class or cultural background. The school is pleased to consider applications from children who have special needs as result of disability. Our Lady's School is a friendly school where courtesy and good manners are part of the normal requirements for all concerned. The attitudes of both staff and pupils create a happy, secure, stimulating and caring environment in which children can enjoy and succeed in the process of learning. The school prides itself in making parents feel welcome and fully involved in the life of the school.
