Our Lady of Compassion School has a rich and diverse Catholic Life programme; we believe our faith permeates all we do for, and with, our children.
We have adopted the Archdiocese of Birmingham's Catholic Schools’ Pupil Profile. This means we will be working together across all phases of the school to look at those values and virtues that come from the Gospel and teachings of Jesus.
These values and virtues are taken from the Jesuit Institute, rooted in the teachings of St Ignatius. A Pupil Profile has been created in which 8 pairs of complementary virtues have been placed together. The Archdiocese of Birmingham is using these Jesuit materials and have renamed them as the Catholic Schools’ Pupil Profile.
Each half term our school will focus on one pair of virtues; we will spend time reflecting on the meaning of these virtues; how we see them in action in our lives and in the lives of others and how we can work to encapsulate these values in our lives.
All classes will discuss the meanings of the Virtues; during assemblies and Masses, as well as during RE lessons, we will take time to consider and reflect upon them. We will reflect quietly and peacefully together so that we can listen carefully and try to hear the inner callings of our hearts.
Pupils at Our Lady of Compassion Catholic Primary 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.
