Dear Visitors

Welcome to the Divine Saviour Primary School website. Thank you for your interest. We hope that you find your visit informative and useful, and that by the end of your visit you will have gained an insight into the hopes and aspirations of our school community.

We are very proud of our happy and successful school, made possible only with the support of our dedicated team of hardworking staff, Governing Body and School Association (PTA). Please take a moment to read our Ofsted reports.

We are a Catholic Primary School where our values, beliefs and practice permeate every aspect of school in line with our mission statement 'Learning to live like Jesus, through love, truth and understanding'. Our aim is to promote the best interests of the children so that they are able to meet their full potential by working in partnership with parents as a community that follows Christ.

Divine Saviour School is a one form entry school which has close links with the parishes of St. Saviour's in Abbots Langley and Our Lady Mother of the Saviour, Chipperfield. The school is a Catholic Voluntary Aided Primary school within the Arch-Diocese of Westminster, for boys and girls aged four and half to eleven, and in the Nursery from rising four year olds.

It is always a pleasure to welcome prospective parents to our school; you are warmly invited to visit us during the day.

We do hope that you will enjoy browsing through our website and be encouraged to visit us soon.
