Children have become accustomed to using the internet more frequently during the period of school closure to access remote learning and to connect with their friends.  Please follow the links below to our  Online Safety pages and the Remote Learning page for advice on how you can help your child stay safe online.   

Our vision for Our Lady of Lourdes School – A dynamic, inclusive school; rooted in its Catholic values and respect for all people; a safe place of successful, enjoyable and challenging learning.

Learning inside and outside of

The Classroom

We continually work to maximise opportunities for our children to reach their full potential by developing our inside and outside learning environments.  Recently we have refurbished all our Junior classrooms and redeveloped the library area to be inviting and stimulating places to learn.  In partnership with governors and the PTA, the school has resurfaced all play and recreational areas, as well as developed a new and engaging wildlife area in the school grounds.

Over the summer holidays 2019, our Reception classroom underwent complete refurbishment, welcoming our new intakes to a bright, modern and stimulating learning environment.

Teaching children English and Maths is important, but we also understand that working together is a big part of the skills needed for life after education. At Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School we actively encourage teamwork and the helping of others through the promotion of a Growth Mindset, Playground Buddies and collaborative learning.

The children learn how to work as a team and individually during their Physical Education, providing necessary skills for post-education life.  We are proud to be winners of the Deans Sports Partnership Cup for the third year in a row and for having achieved the School Sports Games Mark Silver in 2018 and Gold in 2019.
