Catholic Life of the School
As a Roman Catholic School, our faith, values and beliefs inform and unify every aspect of school life at Our Lady of the Rosary. Our bespoke Mission Statement is central to everything.
Our curriculum is holistic and comprehensive. It is exciting and engaging for all learners and is relevant to the school’s own context and postcode. It is broad, balanced, challenging and innovative; one which grabs children’s interest, develops curiosity, resilience and engagement. A curriculum which creatively moves faith into action, putting the ‘Gospel on the Street’.
Teachers deliver the statutory requirements of the R.E. Curriculum, EYFS and National Curriculum with Christ at the centre. They strive to deepen children’s knowledge and understanding and ensure transferable knowledge and skills are evidenced. Pupils have many opportunities to develop their advocacy skills for change for those in the greatest need in society and recognise the importance of their own role in protecting ‘Our Common Home’.
Pupils are encouraged to ask really big questions of purpose and meaning, raising critical and higher order thinking skills across the curriculum. They are encouraged to be ‘Transformers of Change’ and are given many opportunities to make a difference within school, locally, nationally and globally.
