Our Lady Of Lourdes Catholic Primary School

We Learn with God as our Guide

The curriculum  at Our lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary school

 'guided by the light'

Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School’s mission is ‘Learning with God as our Guide.’ Through our curriculum 'Guided by the Light', we strive to develop the skills, knowledge and learning attitudes of our pupils so that they may become the best that they can be.

Our Catholic virtues, closely linked to the Religious Sisters of Charity and the heritage of the school, help children to develop their social and moral code as they build their sense of uniqueness and self-worth as an individual. We believe all children, including those with special educational needs deserve the opportunity to nurture their individual talents and to achieve their true potential. We aim to encourage the children to develop their understanding of their local and national heritage and their role in modern Britain today. We encourage them to embrace all that multi-cultural Britain has to offer them and develop their understanding of the global world, within which they are a citizen of the 21st Century.

We teach the English National Curriculum and give high priority to teaching the fundamentals of reading, writing and mathematics, every day, to ensure that all pupils acquire the basic skills for learning and life. We give children opportunities to work on their own, in pairs and in groups. We value the importance of talk as a tool for learning and invest time in this.

It is important to us to provide a broad range of exciting, relevant and creative opportunities that enrich our children’s learning, such as: wow events, trips, visitors, outdoor learning in our school grounds and links with our parish church. Our school also has specialist teachers for Music.

We are extremely proud of the role our Catholic Ambassadors play in the Catholic Life of the school. Having been elected by their peers, the Catholic Ambassadors are expected to set an excellent example of the virtues of our faith to others. They are also involved in prayer times, assemblies and the planning and assessing of the quality of Collective Worship.

During a pupils’ time at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School, they will have many opportunities to enjoy a variety of creative and sporting extra-curricular activities, such as: athletics, football, dance and choir. We have an active School Council who meet regularly with a member of the school staff. These meetings are held in an informal, but purposeful, manner. During these meetings; the council members bring forth any suggestions or concerns from their fellow class mates and items for discussion may be brought forward from staff. They are encouraged to voice their opinion about school matters in a constructive manner and ensure they are communicating with and, on behalf of their peers. It is a great honour to be a member of the School Council.

Children leave Our Lady of Lourdes with a sense of belonging to a diverse and Christian community where they have the confidence and skills to make decisions, self-evaluate, make connections and become lifelong learners.
