A Message from the Teachers and Staff at Our Lady of Lourdes to our Children

Embedded Calendar

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
