“In the recent development of the outdoor classroom you have involved the pupil ‘Eco Council’ in making key decisions about the design of the area. Pupils feel respected, valued and listened to as a result of this approach to include them in the life of the school.” (Ofsted 2018)

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.

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.
