I am very proud to be Head Teacher of Our Lady of the Rosary and would like to share my thoughts about this unique establishment.
I have worked at this very special school for 28 years and I am delighted to be leading the school forward. Our Lady of the Rosary is an incredible place. The children are all amazing characters with a love and pride in their school. Staff are privileged to work with such dedicated and industrious pupils, who are all individuals.
The school has a wonderful family atmosphere where all work closely together. Team work is an integral part of who and what we are and everyone’s voice is valued and respected. All involved in the school community are extremely proud of the developments and achievements of our school, which is continually improving and creating greater learning opportunities for our pupils.
Our Lady of the Rosary was classed as an ‘outstanding’ school by Ofsted in 2007. One of the few schools to achieve ‘outstanding’ in all 54 areas. We were also graded “outstanding” in all five areas in our R.E. Inspection undertaken in November 2018. The team stated that ‘Our Lady of the Rosary RC Primary School sits at the heart of its community as a wonderful testament of outstanding Catholic education’.
In July 2021, OLOR were the 3rd school in the country to be re-accredited with the NACE Challenge Award for the 4th time. The re-accreditation report stated ‘The school has high aspirations for all learners and celebrates talent. Pupils are safe, secure and well nurtured, meaning they can flourish in their own way. The school is mindful of the future role their pupils will play in the world, encouraging a global awareness alongside community connections.”
OLOR was also re-accredited with the Leading Parent Partnership Award in June 2018 for the 3rd consecutive time.
The staff are exceptional. All are totally committed to providing the absolute best for all our children. We aim to unlock the potential within every member of the school, by lovingly nurturing individuals and watching them grow into confident citizens, continually striving to be ‘The Best They Can Be’ developing resilience and growth mindsets, ‘Learning to Persevere to Succeed’. Pupil leadership is a strength of the school.
We are first and foremost a Catholic school and this is reflected in the way we work together, play and celebrate. Our religious beliefs inspire and unify every aspect of school life. We empower pupils to be ‘Transformational Change Makers’ and ‘Builders of God’s Kingdom’ both within school, locally and nationally.
We wish you and your child a happy and successful time at Our Lady of the Rosary and look forward to building close relationships and working partnership with families. We all look forward to journeying together, continually striving 'to be the best we can be'.
