One Community – OLM is an inclusive school with a rich diversity of cultures that is cherished and celebrated. Working together and caring for each other is a strong part of OLM. In doing this as a whole school community, pupils, staff and families, we can all achieve great things.

Love of Learning - Learning that engages and inspires children produces results. We strongly believe that the best way for our children to achieve their full potential is to enjoy their learning.

Making Time for God - This is vitally important to our ethos and is embedded into everything we do across our school community. This enables our children to understand and value a Catholic ethos as they grow and develop to become responsible and valued individuals as they move into the wider world.

At OLM we work together as one community, we inspire and foster a love of learning and ensure that we follow our gospel values in all we do; this allows our children to flourish academically, spiritually and morally.

  •  to nurture a joy for learning
  •  to offer outstanding teaching and learning
  •  to celebrate success
