Head Teacher’s Welcome
‘Shine as to be a light to others’ Blessed John Henry Newman
The Oratory R.C. Primary and Nursery School builds upon strong foundations inspired by the teaching of Blessed John Henry Newman an advocate of personalised learning and St Philip Neri who believed that, ‘cheerfulness strengthens the heart and makes us persevere in a good life. Therefore the servant of God ought always to be in good spirits.’
We are committed to creating a safe, nurturing and happy innovative learning environment based upon the living tradition of the Catholic Church; drawing upon current educational thinking.
The school prepares children for the challenges and opportunities of the 21st Century through a curriculum that is tailored to meet the needs of all.
A community of lifelong learners, the school and governors, work in partnership with: families, the Oratory Fathers and Brothers, the Oratory Parish, local community and external consultants to enable all children to achieve their full potential: spiritually, academically, emotionally and socially.
We are a team and together we make a difference.
Enjoy our new website; please let us know what you think about it – what is working well and ways in which we can continue to improve. We value your opinion!
Whilst the prime focus of the Oratory R.C. Primary and Nursery School is to secure the best spiritual and educational provision for the child, the school recognises that the safety, welfare and care of children are paramount. We are therefore committed to the highest standards in protecting and safeguarding the children entrusted in our care at all times.
We recognise our responsibility to safeguard all who access school and promote the welfare of all our children by protecting them from physical, sexual and emotional abuse, neglect and bullying.
