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!

Compassionate and Loving

Isaiah 49:13 ‘Shout for joy, you heavens; rejoice, you earth; burst into song, you mountains! For the Lord comforts his people and will have compassion on his afflicted ones.

Psalm 116:5 ‘The Lord is gracious and righteous; our God is full of compassion.’

 

Faith-filled and Hopeful

Jeremiah 17:7-8

Blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
whose confidence is in him.
They will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit.

 

Isaiah 41:10

Do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

 

 

 

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.
