A Community of Faith and Learning

Mission, Values and Catholic Life of the School

As a Community of Faith and Learning, the school reviewed the Mission Statement in April 2019


Our Lady of Dolours Catholic Primary School exists to serve the local Catholic and wider community.  We aim to create an environment where each person, regardless of race, religion, ability or family circumstance, feels valued and nurtured.

In our school community we follow Jesus' commandment

"Love one another as I have loved you" John 13:34

 We aim to:

  • Promote the understanding and practice of Catholic, Christian beliefs and values through prayer life, liturgy and worship
  • Provide high quality education where all children will become lifelong learners and reach their full potential
  • Provide a secure, joyful and supportive environment where children feel valued and safe so that they can fully express themselves as self-confident and resilient learners
  • Develop in our children an understanding of their rights and responsibilities whilst showing respect and tolerance for each other’s' differences
  • Involve and value parents and carers in all aspects of their child's progress, behaviour, well-being and achievements
