May I firstly offer you the warmest welcome to Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School Community.
If you are a parent with a child at the school you already know what a wonderfully inclusive, supportive and welcoming school we are. If you are a prospective parent then this school could be your child's first contact with any school and we take this responsibility and trust very seriously. We want them to find our school a warm and safe place, full of excitement and innovative learning, to thrive here, achieve their best here and then to leave with an avid thirst for learning, ready to eventually become independent and lifelong learners.
At Our Lady of Lourdes school we acknowledge that a highest quality education in Primary School gives your children the very best possible advantage in life options. We have the highest academic expectations of our pupils whilst we continuously support and challenge them to enable them to achieve only their absolute best. Teaching is made interesting, motivating and creative in order to make learning most successful. Catholic moral values and ethos are modelled as part of the daily routine and staff and pupils at Our Lady of Lourdes treat each other with equal respect and courtesy at all times. Our school is a happy and vibrant learning community where our pupils leave feeling confident and self assured, ready to follow their chosen pathway with hope and enthusiasm as well as good grades.
We offer our pupils a full, rich and exciting curriculum made up of the National Curriculum taught alongside the International Primary Curriculum - a 21st Century global curriculum. We place added emphasis on developing a love of the Arts in our pupils and offer lessons in Art, Music, Singing, Drama, Dance, Photography, Cookery, Sewing, Craft and Design and have a Breakfast Club and many After School Clubs - taught by our staff or tutors.
Our school is very well resourced with a Library, Dipping Pond and Music and Art Rooms. We have a new Computing Suite with thirty computers and the school uses the astra turf pavilion next door for Games, Athletics and PE coaching sessions (see curriculum section for more details)
I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you and your child to Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School.
