Our School Ethos and Values

Welcome to Our Lady of Peace Catholic Primary and Nursery

We are a mixed Catholic Voluntary Aided School with a Nursery Class, situated in the Parish of Our Lady of Peace, Burnham. The school which was established in 1961, became a First School in 1975 and an Infant School in 1996. In 2016 the Infant School amalgamated with the Junior School to form Our Lady of Peace Catholic Primary and Nursery School. We work in partnership with the Diocese of Northampton and Slough Local Authority. The partnership between home, school and parish will be nurtured and strengthened by the opportunity for all members of our school community to contribute to the life of our school. Our Catholic faith, which is lived out in our daily lives, will be taught by example and explicitly through the “Come & See” programme and supporting resources.  The children also will be helped towards an awareness and better understanding of other faiths and cultures.
