Dear parents and carers,
We have just heard a few minutes ago that the director of public health has advised all schools in Blackburn with Darwen to delay their wider opening until June 22nd in response the regional rise in the R Rate.
I do not have any further information at the moment but as soon as I do I will inform you. They have stated that a public announcement will be made tomorrow. I will then update you regarding our plans. I hope you are all well and that this worrying time will soon pass.
Best wishes Mrs Staffa
Dear parents and carers,
I am sure that many of you watched the address from Boris Johnson last night and I am sure that many of you now have questions and concerns arising from his announcement.
Unfortunately, schools are receiving the news at the same time as worried parents are and as such I am unable to give any clear information to you at this time.
Over the next couple of days the government will be making further announcements as will the Local Authority and the Diocese. As soon as we have a clearer picture of the expectations of schools during this period and what it means for you and your children I will be in contact with this information.
Please be assured that I will do this as quickly as possible to put all our minds at rest and enable us to plan moving forward whilst ensuring safety is a priority.
I hope you are all well – we are missing our families.
Let no one ever come to us without leaving feeling better and happier
(inspired by Saint Teresa)
Our Lady's School is a caring family where, with Jesus in our hearts,
we value everyone and encourage them to be the best that they can be.
May I wish you a warm welcome to our school website.
Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important responsibilities you undertake as parents, and as the Headteacher it is my very great honour to work with our dedicated staff and governors, to lead such a friendly school where children are encouraged to become confident, caring and articulate and to use their abilities to the full. We provide a calm and happy atmosphere and set high standards of respect, courtesy, hard work and achievement for all children and adults.
At Our Lady’s we always put children first; this aim is at the heart of our vision. Every child is unique. Every child deserves the opportunity to be happy, feel valued and experience success. We strive to promote the values of our Christian faith throughout our daily lives.
We have an enthusiastic, highly motivated staff committed to a caring, child-centred Christian ethos. We offer skilled teaching on an academic level as well as concentrating on the education of the whole child. We have recently introduced a more creative curriculum, which will prepare our pupils for life in the 21st century. We care for each child’s needs within a family context of firm yet sensitive guidance.
As parents, you play such an important role in the education of your child. The website will provide information about the school, its aims, curriculum, activities, events and celebrations of our children’s work. I hope that it will be a useful tool for you and also that it will give you a ‘feel’ for the life and work of the school and for the caring and friendly atmosphere that you will find here.
Please feel free to come into school and we will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
