Starting school in September 2024?

Welcome to our page for new and prospective parents. Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and consider our Ofsted '22 'GOOD' school for your child. 

"We put children first here" - Ofsted 2022


Some things that stand out about Our Lady of Lourdes are how understanding the teachers and LSAs are; how easy it is to make friends; our massive field; and the sense of togetherness at OLOL: I’ll always remember that. I am so very thankful to have attended this primary school. This isn’t just a school: it’s a family.

We hope that our website shows how we believe our learning community is different from other schools and what our school has to offer to help you in making the right choice for your child's future. 

 The school provides a very caring and nurturing environment, which enables a child to reach their full potential. It is a very friendly school, not caring just for educational needs, but also a child’s all round well being. The staff go the extra mile to get to know the children and provide good support for individual needs. The children are happy and safe, which creates the right environment for learning.

Our small, community faith school is based on our core values of Excellence, Kindness, Understanding, Responsibility and Faith. All members of our caring, committed staff know and value every child: we strongly believe that every child is a gift from God. Our school was established to serve our community, and we accept applications from all parents that support the Catholic ethos of the school. 

In lessons, pupils listen carefully to their teachers. Pupils do their best to understand
ambitious new ideas. They work together sensibly and share their ideas eagerly.
They know it is important to keep trying if work is tricky. They say their teachers will
help them if they need it.
Breaktimes are friendly and calm. There is plenty of space for everyone to enjoy
their games. Pupils of all ages mix happily. Older pupils readily help and encourage
younger pupils.
