Last session, we worked with Brian Donnelly, Orbis Training & Consultancy, to review our Vision, Values & Aims.
Our NEW Vision, Values & Aims were created through consultation with everyone in our OLOP Family.
We are a family at Our Lady of Peace
Our vision is of a school where children are welcomed, where they feel safe, where they are connected and are supported to learn and to grow.
We are Always Learning, and Aiming High
Everything we do at Our Lady of Peace starts with our values. We role model positive relationships by demonstrating these values in our interactions with others and use them to help our children when they are not getting on or treating each other well.
Our School Values are
Welcoming, Achieving, Love & Kindness (WALK)
Welcoming – You are welcome at Our Lady of Peace and accepted for who you are. We recognise how diverse our school community is, and we celebrate that. At Our Lady of Peace, we offer support and learning at all levels that gets it right for our children and their families. We put our children at the centre of what we do and the decisions we make
Achieving – We are a team at Our Lady of Peace. We encourage everyone to ‘Aim High’ and to ‘do their best.’ Effort and hard work are part of who we are. We will offer each child the support they need, and we provide a range of stimulating teaching and learning experiences for all children and in partnership with parents, take into account their individual educational, pastoral, and social needs.
Love & Kindness – Kindness helps us create a school where we feel safe and valued. We think about the impact our words and behaviour have on each other. We respect and listen to each other. We recognise the diversity in our school, and we celebrate it. We will challenge all unkind behaviour and actions in an honest and supportive way.
Our Lady of Peace is a community of faith* and learning. We aim to:
- Promote effective partnerships with parents, children, the Church* and the community
- Ensure a safe, relaxed, and happy environment in which children can feel confident and secure, where children’s rights are respected, and gospel values* promoted
- Be an inclusive school and value the views and experiences of all our children
- Create a motivating environment where all learners are encouraged to achieve their full personal and academic potential and where success is celebrated
