Please see our promotional video above for a brief overview of the school. This was kindly produced by Matthew & Ben of Parallax Media who were students at Runshaw College.

On behalf of the whole community of Our Lady’s, may I welcome you to our school website.

We hope that you will find all of the information you are looking for and that the website will give you an insight into the life at our wonderful school.

Being the Headteacher of Our Lady’s gives me great pleasure. I am fully committed to the community of Our Lady’s and strive to ensure that the school serves our local children and their families well.

I believe our school is very special. Our Lady’s enjoys a reputation as a happy and caring Catholic primary school. We are proud of our academic achievements, our friendly purposeful atmosphere and the extra curricular provision made available to our pupils.

 

We expect the highest standards from our pupils in all aspects of school life, in their attitudes to learning and in their behaviour. Our Lady’s staff are committed, talented and professional, providing a caring, safe and supportive learning environment for our pupils.

 

We try to encourage at all times an active partnership with parents, pupils, governors and parish to help ensure the best possible education for each one of our pupils.

 

We hope you like our website; however, if there is anything else you would find useful please let us know through the ‘Contact Us’ page. You are very welcome to visit and experience our outstanding school for yourself – learning and loving together; we grow with Jesus.

 

As headteacher, I am always able to make time to talk to parents, so please do not hesitate to ask.

 

I look forward to meeting you and your child.

Headteacher

Christmas Sing & Sign

We hope that you enjoyed the children’s sing and sign performance this year. Due to current circumstances, we were unable to host our usual Nativity, but we hope that this video brought a little Christmas cheer to all of our families. The video can be found on our homepage and by logging in via your child’s TEAMS’ account.
These events are a great part of our Advent journey and I would like to thank all of the staff for all their hard work to enable this.

Christmas Service

Thank you to all families and parishioners who were able to attend the virtual Christmas Service via Teams last week. Well done to Year 3 for leading the service so beautifully.

Advent & Christmas Service

This Thursday, our Year 4 will lead our Advent service via TEAMS in school. Unfortunately, we are still not allowed to have Mass in school with Fr Kevin and our families, but this new approach enables us to come together to celebrate and reflect upon the time of year. I’m sure that they will do a fantastic job of reminding every-body that this is a time of preparation in celebration of the birth of Jesus. The Advent service can be accessed via the following link on Thursday 3rd December at 11:00am.

All parents, families and friends are also welcome to join us for our Christmas service via TEAMS on Thursday 10th December. The service will be at the usual time of 11:00am. And can be accessed via the following link

Christmas Sing & Sign

On Wednesday 9th December, we will be releasing our Christmas video to our families via our school website. Unfortunately, due to Covid restrictions placed upon school we are unable to invite parents into school or gather the children together outside of their current bubbles. We hope that this approach will enable families to enjoy this Christmas period with their children due to there being no official nativity this year.

Reminders on Covid-19 guidance for schools

The government guidance for those who test negative is that you can return to work/school providing you feel well and have been fever free for 48 hours after the test and fellow household members can end their self-isolation.
Please do refer to the government ‘Stay at home’ guidance . https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-stay-at-home-guidance/stay-at-home-guidance-for-households-with-possible-coronavirus-covid-19-infection
Additionally, Wigan Local authority have asked us to remind all parents to leave the school grounds as quickly as you can once you have dropped off or collected your child. This is really important to maintain social distancing and keeping everyone safe.

Christmas & BOSCEP Carol Service

Despite the pandemic, we are determined that the spirit of Christmas will not be lost. Although we are unable to have our usual nativity and carol services, each class will be recording a short video to celebrate Christmas which we will then share with our families. Our Catholic network of schools will also be joining together virtually, so that they can share a Christmas carol service together.
