Starting school in September 2021?

Welcome to our page for new and prospective parents. Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and consider our school for your child. 

We hope that our website shows how we believe our learning community is different from other schools and what our school has to offer to help you in making the right choice for your child's future. 



 The school provides a very caring and nurturing environment, which enables a child to reach their full potential. It is a very friendly school, not caring just for educational needs, but also a child’s all round well being. The staff go the extra mile to get to know the children and provide good support for individual needs. The children are happy and safe, which creates the right environment for learning.

Our small, community faith school is based on our core values of Excellence, Kindness, Understanding, Responsibility and Faith. All members of our caring, committed staff know and value every child: we strongly believe that every child is a gift from God. Our school was established to serve our community, and we accept applications from all parents that support the Catholic ethos of the school. 

In a year like no other, we are saddened that we are unable for you to see our learning community first hand.

Due to government guidance and to ensure that we keep everyone in our community safe, we are unable to have tours this year. In the absence of these, we have answered some questions sent in by you and our answers can be seen below:

1. What does learning look like in Reception?



2. How we support our reception children to settle into school. How we use our outdoor environment in Early Years.  



3. How we we ensure that our Reception children eat properly throughout the day and ensuring children get to the toilet on time!



4. How do we support all different learners? What clubs do we provide? Breakfast and After School clubs. Our curriculum. 



5. What do our parents and learning community think about OLOL?
