If you are unable to join us at our Open Day for parents and children wishing to apply for a place in our school starting in September 2021, please contact the school to arrange a personal tour of the school.

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.


Mr Chris Horridge

Easter Last Supper Service

Easter Last Supper Service
Our next service in school will be for the Last Supper, and will be at the usual time of 11:00am, on Wednesday 31st March. Year 5 will lead our service via TEAMS in school. Unfortunately, we are still not allowed to have Mass in school with Fr Kevin and our families, but this 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 as they always do! The Last Supper Service can be accessed via the following link on Wednesday 31st March at 11:00am. As always, all families and parishioners are most welcome to join this virtual service.

Lent Fundraising

The Lent fundraising is going amazingly well. It is great to hear the stories of how the children are ‘ Walk-ing for Water’ for Cafod. We are already well on track to achieve another great total. Thank you very much for your continued support. We’ll let you know the final amount when the fundraising has finished.

Blended Learning

I would firstly like to thank you for your continued cooperation and for working with the school to support your child’s education. We are living through very difficult circumstances, but it is made easier when our school family works together.
We recognise everyone’s efforts in every sense and appreciate all the steps you make in working with us during this time. Thank you for bearing with us when numerous up-dates, correspondences and information are sent, some at times that are not easy to send.
Well done everybody!

Lateral Flow Testing Information

You may have heard recently in the news about Lateral Flow Testing. This testing in Primary Schools enables staff to complete Covid testing at home in order to support the protection of our community at Our Lady’s. As a result of this testing, asymptomatic (those individuals who are not displaying Covid symptoms) staff members will be quickly identified and relevant NHS Track & Trace principles followed. The government at this time are not involving the testing of primary school aged children.

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.
