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

Embedded Calendar

Headteacher's Welcome

2(8)

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

Please see the latest advice from Public Health England in relation to Coronavirus

Dear Parents/Carers,

Thank you all for your patience in this challenging and uncertain time. Please keep reassuring your children and supporting them.  Beware of misinformation on social media.  We will stay in contact with all of our families via the SchoolPing app and with updated information on our Website.

    Homework Packs
    Good Afternoon Everyone. I hope you are all well. Following the phone calls home, we are aware that some of you are having difficulty accessing the homework on our website. We want to introduce a new way to make homeschooling easier for you. Our teachers are now busy preparing packs which can be collected from school on Wednesday 13th May from 1.30pm. These packs will contain enough work for the rest of the school week. It will also be the same as the work published on the website each day. You can collect your pack from the canopy area at the front entrance. You child's name will be on their work and there is a separate box for each year group. We are asking that when you complete the work, you return it to school by Monday 18th May. There is a number of ways in which this can be done: 1. Taking a photograph of the work, with a phone or tablet, and emailing it to homework@ourladyoflourdesschool.org.uk 2. Typing the work and emailing it to the same email address. 3. Posting the work to school. Our address is Bradley Boulevard, Huddersfield, HD2 1EA 4. Returning it to the school by hand. The work will then be marked and we will give you feedback during our courtesy calls next week. We are still taking every precaution to ensure we limit the spread of the virus, so we ask you to be mindful of the social distancing rules when you come to school. We ask that only one person per household come to collect the packs and will limit the number of people coming into the canopy area. We also ask that you keep 2metres apart when queuing. There will be no access to the school office at this but if you have any questions, you can ring the school on 01484 310700 or email us at office.ourladyoflourdesschool.org.uk. You can also email the homework email address, homework@ourladyoflourdesschool.org.uk and one of the teachers can help with your query. The last pick up time will be 3.30pm on Wednesday 13th May. Please ensure all homework is returned to school by Monday 18th May. From Monday 18th May, the teachers will be making another call to see how you are doing. You may find, when they ring, that your phone displays "no caller ID," as we use a range of phone lines within school. These are important calls, as we may be in a position to discuss how returning to school may be for your child in the coming weeks and months. We will also be able to assist with any difficulties you are having with the school work. We look forward to hearing from you and seeing the children's work. Take care Miss Clarke

Latest Coronavirus Guidelines

Everybody must stay at home, except for very limited purposes. People should only leave home to shop for basic essentials, to do one form of exercise a day, to fulfil any medical or care needs, and to travel to and from work where absolutely necessary. Non-essential shops have been ordered to close, and there is a ban on public gatherings of more than two people. Stay two metres (6.5 feet) away from other people if you need to go outside.

 

Continue to frequently wash your hands with soap and water (for at least 20 seconds) to stop the infection from spreading.
