We believe that Our Lady Immaculate Primary School plays a critical role in the community where we are based and, similarly, the community plays a critical role in the life of our school and the children who attend our school.
We work closely with our Secondary Schools in particular Notre Dame Catholic College on projects throughout the academic year. Teachers the school regularly visit school and work with our children on specific topics. Currently Year Four are learning to play the guitar with Mr Story from Resonate Music Education Hub and are learning a variety of songs to perform at their class assembly.
As a school we are highly committed to teacher training and the professional development of all staff. We are a member of the North Liverpool Teaching School alliance which is led by Everton Nursery School and Family Centre. Staff from our school deliver workshop and lectures for school direct trainees and Hope University students.
We work closely with UK Military School to support our children in developing and challenging themselves personally and socially. Year groups are targeted and bespoke programmes are written to meet the needs of the cohort. Team work, resilience, communication and cooperation are just some of the skills addressed and developed during the sessions.
Bishop Tom Williams is a regular visitor to our school and plays an invaluable and active role in our school community in supporting our children, families and staff.
During Lent and Advent the we collected dried and tinned food for The Whitechapel Project which helps look after homeless people and supports local families who are struggling to buy food. Our children and families were very generous with the contributions and the staff from the centre were delighted with the donations made.
Our school works closely with a number of local schools through the Link Learning Community Network to develop educational initiatives which support the children within the area.
