Headteacher’s Welcome

At Our Lady of Good Counsel, you will receive a warm welcome from children, staff, parents and governors in an environment where children feel secure, happy and motivated to learn.

Our vision is to provide the best Catholic education enabling all pupils to develop as resilient, independent, ambitious people who are equipped with a lifelong love of learning.

We are part of Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Multi Academy Trust, offering a one-form school located within Sleaford. At Our Lady of Good Counsel, 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 wide range of opportunities and experiences to help our children develop and live out our virtues of self-control, hope, justice, love, courage and solidarity. Through our Learners’ Code, the children have the opportunity to demonstrate these virtues in all they do as they work to become Bronze, Silver or Gold Learners.

We have a diverse school community where all are valued, and children are taught to respect and celebrate differences. Working together as a community we have created a thriving, inspiring learning environment where all children can achieve their full potential.
