'That as many hands build a house, so many hearts make a school'
Our Lady's is a small Nursery and Primary school in Dalton- in Furness, Cumbria. We currently have 98 pupils on roll. We are well resourced and privileged to offer small Class sizes.
We are a very welcoming school and strive to ensure that Gospel Values permeate our whole school curriculum. Christ is always at the Centre of the daily life of the school. We have an Open Door Policy so parents can come and discuss any needs or concerns as soon as possible. Our Staff are very dedicated and have excellent relationships with pupils, parents and our Parish community. We are exceedingly proud of our working partnership with our local community.
Our school community is very proud of what our school achieves, and we always strive to ensure that Our Lady's School provides a happy, caring environment, where everyone works hard and achieves their best. We work very closely with our sister school St Mary's Primary School in Ulverston, and strive to fulfil our motto - 'Lovingly we learn in harmony.'Our aim is to give our pupils the skills to become life long learners, so that they can become exemplary citizens of the future.
Our Nursery opened in September 2014 and is placed in high regard within the local community. It is a proud addition to our Early Years provision -'Nursery is having a positive impact, ... children in the Reception Year start with knowledge and skills at or above those that are typical of their age'. - (Ofsted 2016)
Here at Our Lady's, we are proud of the 'warm, family feel of the school which is prized by staff, parents and pupils.' - (Ofsted 2016). We offer many exciting and creative learning opportunities, including Forest Schools. Our School’s curriculum is excellent, our motto is, 'Fire the imagination' - which was acknowledged in our Ofsted 2016 Inspection '... this is reflected in lessons and planning across the curriculum.'
We provide a variety of extra-curricular activities throughout the year, including netball, football, coding, choir, violin and many others throughout the year.
We understand that deciding the right school for your child is an extremely important and often difficult decision.
