Part of

All Saints Catholic Collegiate

Catholic Life 

 

Welcome to the Catholic Life page at Our Lady's.

At Our Lady's, Jesus Christ remains central to every aspect of school life. All pupils are educated in the beliefs and devotional practices of the Catholic church. Participation in daily collective act of worship takes place every morning, lunch times, within RE lessons and at the end of each day. Every class prepares and leads Mass throughout the year, with parents, families and parishioners warmly welcomed.

The Catholic RE scheme ‘Living and Growing as the People of God’ is followed throughout the school. This is supplemented by work on the saints and stories from the Old and New Testaments, Circle time sessions and Personal, Social and Health Education. Children participate in special liturgies during the school year which are timed to coincide with events in the Church’s calendar.

Each class has two nominated pupils on the 'RE Mission team', alongside our Minnie Vinnie's group they work as a team to promote charitable giving throughout the school. Classes nominate a charity of the year that they fund raise for, alongside school charities. Many of our pupils take on the role of disciples and choose individual charities to support.

We are proud to be part of the All Saints Catholic Collegiate and enjoy working across the MAC to support each other. Each year we celebrate All Saints day in school, we dress as saints and learn lots of new facts!

 

Values and Virtues

Each half term we look at different virtues of Jesus that we share with the children during assemblies and collective worship. This half term we are looking at: Grateful and Generous

 

Pupils in a Catholic school are growing to be . . .
Grateful for their own gifts, for the gift of other people, and for the blessings of each day; and generous with their gifts, becoming men and women for others.
Attentive to their experience and to their vocation; and discerning about the choices they make and the effects of those choices.
Compassionate towards others, near and far, especially the less fortunate; and loving by their just actions and forgiving words.
Faith-filled in their beliefs and hopeful for the future.
Eloquent and truthful in what they say of themselves, the relations between people, and the world.
Learned, finding God in all things; and wise in the ways they use their learning for the common good.
Curious about everything; and active in their engagement with the world, changing what they can for the better.
Intentional in the way they live and use the resources of the earth, guided by conscience; and prophetic in the example they set to others. 

 

Religious Education

As a Catholic school, Jesus Christ remains central to every aspect of school life. All pupils are educated in the beliefs and devotional practices of the Catholic Church. Participation in daily collective act of worship remains at the helm of every day. Mass takes place in school weekly with parents, families and parishioners warmly welcomed.

The Catholic RE scheme ‘Living and Growing as the People of God’ is followed throughout the school. This is supplemented by work on the saints and stories from the Old and New Testaments, Circle time sessions and Personal, Social and Emotional Development. Children participate in special liturgies during the school year which are timed to coincide with events in the Church’s calendar.

Our parish priest, Canon John Gilbert , works closely with school staff and families.
Parents and carers are advised that, in desiring a Catholic education for their child, it is expected that all pupils will participate in RE lessons.

All pupils learn about other religions and cultures and are encouraged to show respect and acknowledgement for the beliefs of others through open discussion and shared experiences.
