Welcome from the Headteacher|
On behalf of the whole school community I would like to welcome you to Our Lady and St. Gerard’s Catholic Primary School.
Our school has a dedicated and caring staff who work hard to provide exciting and challenging activities which will encourage every child to develop to their full potential. We are very much a school family who strive to ensure that our wonderful children are happy and enjoy being in school. We strongly value our links with parents, the parish and the wider community and we believe that by working in partnership we can provide an outstanding education for every child. Supported by our Parish of Our Lady and St. Gerard Majella and the Diocese of Salford, we work hard to develop our Christian ethos and values that will shape all aspects of school life.
Our Lady and St. Gerard’s is a very special place to be and we take pride in offering an excellent education in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. We hope that you find our website interesting and informative but if you would like further information please to not hesitate to contact us.
Visits to the school are always welcomed.

The PTA Summer Fair will take place on Friday 23rd June from 3.15-6.00pm. There will be lots of exciting activities and stalls for the children to take part in. Please come and join us!
We will be having a 'Mufti Day' on Friday 16th June in return for items for the summer fair. In order to gain a spread of different prizes for the stalls we will be making suggestions for each class on what to bring.
We are delighted to announce that we were inspected by Salford Diocese in March 2017 and were graded as an 'Outstanding' School. Please follow the link to view the full inspection report.
Lots of our after school activity clubs are starting in the next couple of weeks. Please keep checking the link to view the clubs on offer in summer. More clubs may be added and different year groups will have opportunities throughout the year.
Extra Curricular Activities
Our Library system has been upgraded in school and some children have started to use the online features already to publish book reviews. Over the coming weeks each class will be using the library and we will be showing children how to use the resource. Remember...reading is fun!
New Library System - The Reading Cloud
This year during Lent the children chose to support CAFOD and their appeal to 'turn little fish into big fish'. Each class decided on their own fundraising idea - some named real fish, some children baked delicious biscuits to sell and some are decorated 'funky fish'. The total amount raised was a fantastic £589.76. Thank you for your continued support. The money will be well spent helping to buy some starter fish, ponds or training people to dig and look after their own pond.
Our photo gallery has been updated with World Book Day photographs.
The new Digital Leaders for this year have already been working hard in school taking part in staff training and putting up displays. The team are: Aimee, Erin, Joseph, Josh, Liam, Mary, Niya, Kacey and Grace. You can read more from them in this week's newsletter.
If you have a child who will be three years old during 2016-2017 then they will be entitled to 15 hours of free sessions in our school nursery. Please contact the school for further information and for an admission form.
