Catholic Life of Our School

Our School Prayer and Mission Statement explains that we give thanks to God for our wonderful school, as Our Lady and St Weburgh's is a place where all are valued, where we learn to grow more like God, where we make the most of each opportunity presented to us. Our Catholic faith ensures that our school is a place of peace, happiness and truth, love and security, because undoubtedly, our school is God's school. 

The Catholic life of our school infiltrates all that we hope to achieve in serving God and serving one another. Our curriculum is based upon the principles of Catholic Social Teaching, and through our 'Big Question' approach to the curriculum, and our 5 curriculum drivers in bold below, we aim for our children to:

  • Respect the human dignity of all people
  • Be inspired by and inspire others
  • Confidently articulate their understanding of their values, faith and learning
  • Advocate the teachings of Jesus Christ in all that they say and do
  • Reflect upon their own selves, their learning and the impact of others.

We do this in a wide variety of ways, for example, active participation in regular worship, prayer and liturgy, celebrating the sacraments, focus upon the nine principles of Catholic Social Teaching and the Catholic Schools' Pupil Profile (Values and Virtues), our learning in all areas of the curriculum and the many fundraising events that we support throughout the year.
