Our Lady of Compassion Catholic Primary School

To live as Jesus taught us




Welcome to Our Lady of Compassion Catholic Primary School and Nursery


I am incredibly proud to be Headteacher at such a great school where children, staff, governors and parents work extremely hard and have high expectations of one another.  The wonderful team at Our Lady of Compassion is committed to the highest standards of teaching and learning, achieved through a combination of challenge, support, encouragement and praise to ensure that all students reach their full potential.


At Our Lady of Compassion you will find a friendly, caring and purposeful environment where relationships are built on mutual respect and where all families from the local and wider community are welcomed. 

Our school mission statement is “To live as Jesus taught us” which we use throughout our school day to guide and support us. We all believe that instilling a love of learning and developing different learning skills is vital in preparing children for their future lives.  We want our children to leave Our Lady of Compassion as confident and highly motivated independent learners who are caring and positive citizens.  


At Our Lady of Compassion the children are at the centre of all that we do and we strive to provide an inclusive, vibrant and exciting curriculum with a wide range of learning experiences to engage and enthuse everyone.  All of which is underpinned by rigorous teaching of reading, writing and mathematics skills to ensure children are ready for each stage of their learning journey.


I hope you enjoy exploring this website and finding out about our school.
