Thank you for visiting Our Lady of Good Help Catholic Primary School’s website. Our school is a small, friendly and vibrant one-form entry Catholic primary school situated in the heart of Wavertree. We can track our heritage back over 150 years. Our mission statement, based on the words of Pope Francis, ‘Like Our Lady, we live wisely, think deeply and love generously, in Christ,’ embodies the Catholic ethos of our school. We are so proud of our children.
They are enthusiastic, enquiring and have a real love of learning. Our staff work tirelessly, putting care and thought into everything they do to help our children be the best they can be and to ensure that all children receive an education that meets their individual strengths and needs. At OLGH, we are devoted to creating the best learning environment, where each and every child can thrive and develop into well-rounded, independent, upstanding members of our community.
By developing strong relationships, we are able to teach the children to be compassionate, kind and respectful; to take pride in themselves, each other and our school; and we are able to keep our children safe and happy. On top of this, we value the relationships we have with our parents, our parish and our local community. We truly believe that, by working in partnership, each child will receive all the love, care and support needed to flourish. Children join our school from Reception, where they enter our superbly resourced 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, broad and balanced 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 athletics amongst many others so that children are able to develop other passions and learn life skills. We have excellent links with our local church, Christ the King and Our Lady, and celebrate mass every month in our school hall. 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.
We may be a small school but we have a BIG heart!
Please give us a call as we’d love to show you arround our wonderful school.
