Parents are partners with us during the crucial years spent at Primary school.
At Our Lady of Lourdes we work closely with you to ensure that the time your child spends with us is safe and happy as well as successful. Parents are partners with us during the crucial years spent at Primary school. We therefore aim to support you and hope, in return, that you will support the school in providing a stable, pleasant and engaging environment. Many parents find it rewarding to become more actively involved in the school through the flourishing PTA or as a member of the Parent Council. You are also encouraged to contact the school as soon as you have any concerns, and you are always welcome to come into school.

GDPR applies to ‘Data Contollers’ and ‘Data Processors’.
A ‘Data Controller’ determines the purposes and means of processing personal data.
A ‘Data Processor’ is responsible for processing personal data on behalf of a controller.
