Headteacher's Welcome


We warmly welcome you to our school and look forward to a successful partnership between Home, School and Parish. We look forward to working with you throughout the year, building on existing links, by providing the best education possible for your child.


We pride ourselves that we are a small family community with a strong Christian ethos. We take tremendous pride in knowing all our children by their name and being committed to offering them the finest start to their education, where they can thrive in a safe, caring, welcoming and happy environment of mutual respect and a passion for learning. 


           Our vision remains rooted in our Mission Statement which is the foundation for all learning:

                 'Bringing out the best in everyone, for the benefit of all,

                                     in the Spirit of Christ' 


Being a fully inclusive school, we value every individual and the contributions they make. We want our children to experience the pleasure of achieving personal academic successes, linked to a strong sense of morality and fairness, based on the teachings of Jesus Christ within our Christian faith.


As a family school, our partnership with parents is of paramount important to us. We believe that children learn best when home, school and parish work together for their benefit. When starting school, children bring a rich tapestry of knowledge and understanding about the world around them, which they have already learnt from you, their parents – their first educators.


I feel most privileged to serve the community of Our Lady and St Kenelm Primary School as Headteacher and look forward to working with you during the years of your child's primary education. I would like to sincerely thank you in advance for the hard work, dedication and generosity you bring to our school family.
