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.
