Welcome to Our Lady of Good Help
Thank you for visiting Our Lady of Good Help Catholic Primary School’s website – we hope you find it useful.
Our school is a small and friendly one-form entry Catholic primary school situated in the heart of Wavertree, a suburb of Liverpool, and we can track our heritage back over 100 years.
We are proud of our children who are eager to learn and our staff, who put care and thought into everything that they do, to help our pupils be the best they can be and who ensure that each of our children receives an education that meets their individual strengths and needs. Our recently changed Mission Statement, based on the words of Pope Francis, reflects this ethos: We are a Catholic school who ‘Like Our Lady, live wisely, think deeply, love generously in Christ.’
Children are able to join our school from the start of the term after their fourth birthday, when they enter our newly developed Reception class which is light and airy, with access to the outdoors.
Children then move through the school into Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, where they will enjoy a rich and engaging curriculum that provides every child with a real love of learning. Children also have the chance to enjoy a wide range of visits to different places – ranging from Acorn Farm to Liverpool’s museums, and including a residential trip in Year 6. We also run lots of after-school clubs, including art, football, choir and lacrosse.
We have excellent links with our local church, Christ the King and Our Lady, and celebrate mass every month in our school hall.
Children regularly join our school mid-year when moving into the area, and we have spaces in most of our classes for such mid-year transfers. We are a very warm and friendly school, and because of this we always find that children settle in quickly and are very soon part of the Our Lady of Good Help family. If you are looking for a school in the Wavertree area for your child, please give us a call as we’d be delighted to show you around our fabulous school!
