At Our Lady of Victories we aim to create a safe, secure, inspiring and creative learning environment where children feel valued and happy. We want our pupils to become independent and resilient learners, who enjoy learning, are enabled to achieve excellence and experience success. We actively celebrate diversity and ensure equality of opportunity. We support pupils to be able to move smoothly through key transition points ready for the next stage of their learning.
Our Catholic ethos permeates everything that we do in school and through our School Curriculum, Religious Education Programme and the PHSE curriculum, children learn about the importance of moral values such as honesty, respect, tolerance, sincerity, trust and personal responsibility.
We provide a secure, stimulating environment within the context of our Catholic faith, where all pupils feel comfortable, happy, valued and respected, regardless of age, race and gender. Our pupils are encouraged and taught to be responsible citizens and to take an active role in their school, parish and the wider community. There is an active partnership between the home, school, parish and the wider community. Learn more here
Teachers are knowledgeable about the content of the curriculum they are teaching. They aim to deliver key concepts or new learning using approaches best suited to individual children’s needs in order to enable pupils to understand it.
Subsequently teachers offer opportunities for pupils to embed learning in their long term memory through revisiting it, building on it, practising the skills learned and applying them with increasing confidence. The highest possible standards of children’s learning are promoted through clear teaching objectives, effective and consistent recording, monitoring and assessment. Learn more here
Our school has an aspirational and high achieving culture, consistently achieving good results in attainment, well above national attainment and in line with or above LA attainment. Academic achievement of all pupils is expected so that each child reaches their full potential.
We also value and reward each child’s achievement in other aspects of their learning. Each child is valued as an individual with his/her special abilities, gifts, needs and personalities. Each child has equal access to all aspects of school life.
Pupils with SEND are carefully monitored and additional support is offered to provide them with key knowledge and skills, enabling them to achieve the best possible outcomes. Each child is well prepared for the next transitional stage in their education and for a life in a modern, democratic society. Learn more here
