Headteacher’s Welcome

Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome to the website of Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic Primary School in Sleaford.  I warmly invite you to use our website as an opportunity to view our primary school, where the Catholic ethos is evident and open to be experienced by all who enter.  At Our Lady’s, you will find a warm, welcoming, family atmosphere where each child is known and where children from all faiths and backgrounds are welcomed.

‘We Love, Live and Learn in the Light of Christ’

Through our Mission Statement, we, as a school, want our children to learn, achieve and excel, which is inspired and underpinned by Gospel values so that they can reflect God’s love in their everyday lives: Christ is at the centre of everything we do.  Our actions reflect our belief that every child is a gift, created in the image of God. We recognise that each child is unique, with their own talents, which we endeavour to nurture and develop.

We offer a rich, engaging and balanced curriculum so that our children receive the very best education possible and are ready for the next step in their learning.  Our staff work tirelessly and are fully committed to ensure all learners reach their full potential, regardless of ability or background. We have the highest expectations of staff and pupils and expect each to demonstrate outstanding levels of attendance, appearance, courtesy, respect and work ethic throughout their time at the school.  The school provides a safe, caring, positive and stimulating environment which promotes academic learning for all.

As a caring, supportive school family, we value the important role that our wider community of parents and carers has in supporting children’s learning, and the life of the school, and we welcome involvement and feedback from our families at every opportunity.  We greatly value the links we have with our pupils’ families.

You are very warmly invited to visit us at work during the school day.  Please contact the school office to arrange an appointment.  I look forward to welcoming you to our school!

With best wishes

Mrs Nicola Malthouse
