Our Lady’s Catholic Primary School

A Place of Learning - A Community of Christ

Let the message about Christ completely fill your lives, while you use all your wisdom to teach and instruct each other
Colossians 3:15
Our Mission is
To share and pass on our faith

We proclaim the teaching of Jesus and attempt to live the Gospel message

To respect and understand each other

We are all children of God, unique and filled with different gifts

To share a journey in learning so that we all grow in knowledge, skills and Christian values
We learn to let God teach us about Himself, His creation, ourselves and how to live the rest of our lives.
Here we prepare, with the help of Jesus, for living in the 21st Century

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.


In accordance with the requirements of the 1995 & 1998 Education Acts, the school offers children their entitlement to learn the subjects of National Curriculum and RE. We aim to be both an environment in which high quality learning can take place and also a community living true to the teachings and guidance of Our Lord Jesus Christ. We place great importance in promoting Christian values.

It is our aim to offer a range of academic, aesthetic, practical, sporting skills and knowledge for our children to learn. We look to continually improve and update our curriculum to make it relevant and useful to our children. We are committed to developing the use of ICT across the school, both as a teaching tool and as an important area of learning for all pupils. We include health and personal safety as part of our curriculum, as we do knowledge of the world of work, of society and of local, national and international.


Our Lady’s is a Catholic School. Many of our pupils are from families who are part of five Roman Catholic Parish communities:
  • Our Lady's Chesham Bois/Amersham
  • St. Columba's Chesham
  • St. Aidan's Little Chalfont
  • St. Anne's Wendover
  • Immaculate Heart of Mary, Great Missenden
The standard number of pupil admissions per year is presently 28.

Parents can withdraw their children from all or part of the religious education and collective worship provided. This goes against the ethos of the school. Governors would find it hard to accept children of parents who want to withdraw their children from the religious education of the school.

From September 1998 children have been accepted into the reception class from 4 years of age. The normal policy of the school is to admit children who will be five between September 1 and December 31 into the school at the start of the school year as full time pupils. Children who are five between January 1 and April 30 are admitted part time in the previous September and full time in January. Children who are five between May 1 and August 31 are admitted part time the previous January and full time after Easter.

All children are full time in the term they have their fifth birthday. Part time children attend school from 9am to 12.15 am Monday to Friday.

Children who have not reached their fifth birthday follow the "Early Years Education " before starting the National Curriculum when they are five.

Prospective parents are most welcome to visit the school and meet the Headteacher.
