Catholic life of the school
At OLM we believe in Making Time for God. All children, regardless of their faith, learn to understand gospel values. Our aim is for our children to grow and develop to become responsible and kind individuals, with strong values and a sense of duty to the communities they are part of.
Catholic social teaching is threaded through all we do; it is based on the premise that we love one another. By living out Catholic Social Teaching we can build a world of justice, love and peace where everyone has what they need.
Our most recent RE Inspection took place in May 2018. The catholic life of the school formed a substantial part of the inspection and we were delighted to be graded Outstanding . Please click the following link to read the full report - Diocese of Westminster RE Inspection May 2018
Not everyone in our school community is Catholic. At OLM we are an inclusive and welcoming community where everyone is valued and respected. We have many non-Catholic family's who have actively chosen OLM because of our strong value based system.

The School Chaplaincy Team
The Chaplaincy team are children from Y1 to Y6 who support the Catholic life of the school by meeting to share ideas, plan and run spiritual and charitable activities. Our aim is to help support and make a positive difference in the community as well as school life. The team will also be working on the half termly themes of Catholic Social Teaching and this year they will doing research into the schools foundations and history.
Our school sits within the parish of Our Lady of Muswell in the Diocese of Westminster. Fr Mark Anwyl is our Parish Priest. Fr Mark is a frequent visitor to the school and helps us with key celebrations and liturgies. The children will visit OLM Church once a term to join the parish for for important Masses.
