Welcome To Our Lady of Walsingham Catholic Primary School
Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. Everyday is an Open Day at Our Lady's so if you would like a tour, please just contact the School Office.
We pride ourselves on the care and support that we give all of our school community - our pupils, our staff, our parents, our families and our parishoners, as we strive for excellence socially and academically throughout the school. We work together to inspire and learn, guided by God's love.
We foster the Gospel Values in all that we do with our children and offer them an exciting curriculum that values their uniqueness and celebrates difference. Our warm and nurturing surroundings encourage all children to blossom and flourish.
From their very first moments in our school, our children learn that living safely, with kindness and showing respect are key to everyday life.
With warmest regards,
Mrs C. McKinnon

On 1st June we will welcome back our Keyworker children in our new ‘Keyworker Hub’ – it will be slightly different so that we can start to put our new plans in place. All children attending the Hub need to be on-site
by 8:40 am. I will open the school gate at 8:30. AFTER 8:40 THEY WILL NOT BE PERMITTED! If there is a family in front of you, please use social distancing rules of 2m. NO PARENTS ARE NOW ALLOWED ON-SITE. This is really important for the safety of our children and staff. In order to access the Hub, your child needs to have been attending or needs to be pre-registered (1 week in advance) which can be done by calling the School
Office. For the safety of everyone, if your child’s name is not registered for the Hub, we will have to turn you away. Please help us with these arrangements. Pick Up is from the school gate – socially distanced – at 3pm.
Plans for Other children to return
was hoping today to send you our plans and dates for welcoming you back but this now won’t happen until the 15th June. However, I want to reassure you that very detailed plans, risk assessments and training are underway. IF we reopen to other children on 15th June, we will initially re-open for Year 6 pupils only. Those parents will receive full details of the arrangements nearer the time. Our priority is the health and safety of our community. Our partial re-opening plan and phased approach is based on the guidance from the UK government released to the public on 11th May 2020, DfE advice and then later Sefton’s wishes to return on15th June.
Although we had planned to change the uniform this year, we have been unable to engage with any of our Governors and Parents to do this, so the Uniform will remain the same in 2020/21 as this year. For the up-to-
date Uniform Policy please click Here. Remember – trainers in Year 1-6 are NOT permitted and children will be asked to wear pumps in school if they only have trainers.
