Our Lady of Lourdes Primary School
Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School is a Catholic School which seeks to live out the values of Jesus Christ.
As a Catholic school we are fully committed to the values contained within the Gospels. As modern British values have evolved from a time when we were historically Christian, our Gospel values and British values are fundamentally linked and interwoven. In 2011, the government defined British Values as democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs.
We proudly promote these same values through our curriculum as a Catholic school as represented in our mission statement. This recognises every pupil is unique and created in the image of God. (Genesis 1:27) Our framework for understanding British Values draws on the example of Jesus and his welcome and inclusion of all, which is the basis of Catholic Social Teaching.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all our children and we expect all staff, parents and carers to share this commitment.
