    Community Response Helpline
    Our Community Response helpline is open We’ve opened a new dedicated helpline as part of our Covic-19 Community Response. We’re working alongside our citizens and local organisations to make sure that together we can all support our neighbours and communities over the coming weeks. We’re working especially closely with local voluntary sector organisations through our partners at Volunteering Kirklees (part of Third Sector Leaders). Together we’ve developed a co-ordinated Community Response, including a Kirklees Council helpline and online forms that anyone can use to either request help, or to offer support to others. Our response teams in local places will be matching requests for help with offers of support, so that we can work together to support the most vulnerable in our communities. How to request support or offer support Please let us know about the things you (or someone who you are concerned about) need help with. You can also tell us how you (or your organisation) can support others. • Covid-19 Community Response • Community Response helpline: 01484 226919 The helpline will initially be open from 8am to 6pm weekdays. We will review this daily. You can share information with us online at any time. Support for local groups We are listening to what local mutual aid groups and voluntary organisations need so that we can offer more support and advice where needed. Our partners at Volunteering Kirklees are also here to support you if your organisation needs urgent help from more volunteers. Your organisation can promote volunteering opportunities on the Volunteering Kirklees website, or ask for advice and learn from what other organisations are doing. If you’d like to help a local organisation through this difficult time, you can sign up to be a volunteer.

    Home School Learning
    Throughout the closure we still intend to offer some form of education to our pupils and have set up a home learning link on our website. Our teachers will post lessons daily for your child to complete at home. There is also an example timetable to help you structure a school day for your child. The website will be updated between 9-9.30 am Monday-Friday. Our teachers will also be on hand to offer any advice through our new homework email address homework@ourladyoflourdesschool.org.uk so please do not hesitate to get in touch. When addressing your email, please state your child’s year group or class teacher in the subject bar, so that it can be allocated to the correct member of staff. Also on our website, there are links to a range of websites for each curricular area, which will hopefully be of benefit to you and your child. To minimise the spread of this virus we must now do our duty and do what is asked and expected of us. We must keep ourselves and each other safe, by following the guidelines set by Public Health England which are washing our hands and staying at home. Please try and stay positive. God Bless

If your child(ren) are currently absent from school and your family are in isolation you are welcome to send someone else who is fit & well (not in isolation) to collect the pack on your behalf.

Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School which serves the families of the Holy Redeemer Parish within Sheepridge. Our school is part of the family of Catholic Primary Schools within the Diocese of Leeds and as such, prayer and worship play an important role in the life of the children and staff. 

Together with our families, we work closely to ensure our children feel safe, enthused in the classroom and are challenged in their learning. We believe our children are capable of achieving their full potential and will do our utmost to help them believe in their own abilities. Our staff are a close knit team who strive to provide the most appropriate curriculum to meet the needs of the children entrusted to their care. As an inclusive school we celebrate our diversity within our school community and the children embrace and respect one another.

Please feel free to browse our website and contact us directly should you wish to visit our school community. Many Blessings!

Mr Rowan, Executive Headteacher
