“Christ at the centre of our school where we live, love and learn together”


Welcome to the website of Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School, Yardley Wood, Birmingham. If you are worried about a child please speak to a DSL in school or telephone 01213031888 - CASS. If you think a child is in immediate danger please phone 999. We are an Operation Encompass School

Attendance & Punctuality

OLOL has a statutory duty to keep your child safe which includes knowing where they are if they are not in school. We have a detailed policy document (available below) that explains our Attendance philosophy and procedures. Miss Popsys is our Attendance Monitoring Lead and she may be the first person you hear from if there is an issue with your child's attendance or punctuality.

Please note that we do not allow children to be collected by anyone under the age of 16 in order to help keep pupils safe. Please keep the contact list at school up to date with those adults you allow to collect your child. We will not send your child with anyone not on your approved list so we will hold your child and telephone you if someone new comes to collect. It would help us if you can let the school office know in advance if someone new is collecting (and avoid delaying the person you have asked to collect your child).
