Catholic Life and Mission
Our Mission Statement is:
Led by Christ, we learn and grow together in God's family.
We are a voluntary-aided Catholic Primary School in the Diocese of Westminster. Our mission in serving the local Catholic parishes of Our Lady of Victories and Our Lady of Mount Carmel and St. Simon Stock, is to offer Catholic education, spiritual and moral teaching to the children in our care.
Our parish priests are regular visitors to school and there are many occasions throughout the year when we celebrate Mass together as a whole school. In addition to this, prayer is important at all times both collectively and individually. We are very fortunate to have our own school chapel where classes can come to pray, reflect and worship also.
The Catholic life of the school is rich in opportunities for children to encounter God and to deepen their relationship with Him as a loving, compassionate Father.
Our school's foundations are built on the Catholic faith and beliefs - and that it is our shared responsibility to transmit the Catholic faith to the children in our care.
We believe that we share our role as educators of the faith with the parents and we strive to keep them fully informed about what their child is learning at school and to inform them about what they can do at home to further their child's understanding of the faith. Parents are welcomed to assemblies, Masses and other liturgies throughout the year.
We maintain close links with the two parishes we serve. Two members of staff and a school governor are part of the team of catechists at Our Lady of Victories parish.
