About Us

The Governing Body, Headteacher and Staff of Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Primary School welcome you to our school website. Our mission states God is at the centre of our lives and is at the heart of everything that we do. We aim to be a school where Christ is at the centre, and children are at the heart of everything we think, say and do.

As part of this we follow the Church’s liturgical year and promote fairness, respect and tolerance through our Statements to Live by and also our study of other faiths and cultures.

You can find out about our school by viewing our classes and seeing what exciting learning is taking place in each year group. Also you could visit our school diary or read the weekly newsletters to keep up to date with all the latest information.

At Our Lady of the Rosary we are very proud of our children and enjoy celebrating their achievements and success.

We also offer a range of different after school activities and are very proud of our Breakfast Club and After School Club.
