Mission Statement 
At Blessed Patrick O’Loughran Primary School we aim to provide a working, caring and happy environment in which the potential of every child can be realised. 
As a Catholic school we wish to promote in all our pupils such values as will make them caring and respectful citizens. We believe in the dignity and worth of each individual and in the development of the whole person. 
All members of staff share these values and work to ensure a pupil centred approach in which caring is a shared responsibility of all our staff. These values underpin and shape our school policies. 
Blessed Patrick O'Loughran PS is a Catholic coeducational school with a Catholic ethos under the Trusteeship of St. Patrick's Educational Trust, Archdiocese of Armagh. The school provides a faith-based education centred on gospel values of love, respect, justice, compassion and hope. We warmly welcome learners from the Catholic tradition, other traditions and non-Christian traditions as awell as those who do not identify as having any religious faith. 
Important Dates for 2024-25 School Year

Whilst certain absences due to sickness are inevitable parents are reminded that we discourage children from being withdrawn from school due to holidays during term time.
