Thank you for visiting Our Lady's School website.
'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 with 90 pupils currently on roll.
We are a very welcoming school and strive to ensure that Gospel Values permeate daily life in our school and our school curriculum. We have an open door policy so parents can come and discuss any needs or concerns as soon as possible. Our dedicated staff have excellent relationships with pupils, parents and our parish community; working partnerships which we are proud of.
We always strive to ensure that Our Lady's School provides a happy, caring environment, where everyone works hard and achieves their best. Working closely with our sister school, St Mary's Catholic Primary School in Ulverston, we 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 and violin.
We understand that deciding on the right school for your child is an extremely important and often difficult decision. We believe the best way to understand what Our Lady's School would provide for you, and your child, is to come and visit our school. We would be delighted to show you around.
