Our School

Our Lady’s RC Primary School is a denominational school on a shared campus, in the City of Dundee and has served the children, parents & carers of the surrounding area for over 40 years. Everyone has a place here. In our safe and inclusive environment we embrace and value diversity. We recognise and respect the uniqueness of every individual within the school community as made in the image and likeness of God.  We acknowledge and accept that there is more than one way to achieve the same goal. We value and encourage the development and sharing of everyone’s unique ideas, talents, skills, passions and culture. We understand the importance of supporting everyone to be the best they can be in their daily lives.

Best learning happens when strong, respectful partnerships are formed and nurtured within our community. Open communication and on-going conversations allows our school family to contribute to and share in their children's learning in a way that is positive and supportive.  All our staff are highly motivated and understand that achievement and engagement are strongly influenced by effective teaching. They regularly review what they do and how their teaching impacts on learning.

Learning experiences are purposeful and take place through meaningful, real life contexts and future focussed issues. Through engagement in learning, and a positive learning environment with high expectations, high levels of motivation, and positive relationships, our learners learn how to learn and are encouraged and supported to reach their potential. Their successes are nurtured and celebrated.

Through enjoyment in learning, we are able to embrace the future.

Kind regards

Lorna Dashwood
Head Teacher (Acting)
