Welcome to Our Lady of Lincoln Catholic Primary School.
Choosing a primary school for your son or daughter is one of the most important decisions you will make as a parent. You will want to offer your child every opportunity to achieve academic success and allow them the widest possible range of experiences to develop their own personal interests and talents. You will also want your child to feel safe in an environment where they feel happy and secure, that prepares them for further growth and development and helps them to realise their full potential.
At Our Lady’s school, that is what we offer your child. We welcome all children and families from faith or no faith backgrounds, providing a rich educational experience, rooted in Christian family values within a caring and nurturing environment. As a Catholic school these values permeate all areas of the curriculum and all aspects of school life; and of paramount importance to us is our caring, family ethos where all children can flourish and develop to become everything that they were created to be, academically, socially, morally and spiritually.
The opportunity for this vision of education to continue beyond the primary years is provided in Lincoln at Saint Peter and Saint Paul’s Catholic Voluntary Academy allowing a seamless transition from Key Stage 2 into Key Stage 3 based on the values and vision shared by both schools.
I hope that our website gives you a flavour of our school and answers some of the questions that you may have; encouraging you to come and have a look around and experience first hand everything that we have to offer your child as they embark on their exciting journey through primary education.
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!

Our school is situated in the north of the city of Lincoln, close to the cathedral and the castle.
We welcome all children from faith or no faith backgrounds, providing a rich educational experience, rooted in Christian family values within a caring and nurturing environment. As a Catholic school these values permeate all areas of the curriculum and all aspects of school life; and of paramount importance to us is our caring, family ethos where all children can flourish and develop to become everything that they were created to be.
Our Lady of Lincoln Catholic Primary School was inspected by Ofsted in June 2016 and our school continues to be ‘Good,’ their report and comments recognised the strengths of our school.
‘There is much to celebrate about Our Lady of Lincoln Catholic Primary School. The calm and orderly atmosphere, allied to attractive classrooms and tidy grounds, which are so obviously respected by the pupils, set a good standard and make the school a conducive place in which to learn. The school is, justifiably, regarded very well by parents and the pupils.’
‘Not only do the pupils do well academically, but the school helps pupils to develop also a sense of self-worth and a clear set of values, particularly of tolerance, respect and caring for others. The attention that you give to the pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, combined with effective teaching, enables the pupils to become thoughtful and responsible young people.’
Our Lady of Lincoln Catholic Primary School is a living and caring community, an extension of our homes and an integral part of our wider Community.
Everyone is given the opportunity for a complete educational journey, embracing their spiritual, emotional, social, intellectual and physical needs.
Following Christ’s teaching to love God and love our neighbour, our school aims to provide a living and learning experience, responsive to the individual’s needs, preparing our children for further growth and development and helping them to realise their full potential.
We seek to inspire the children entrusted to us to value themselves and each other.
We do this through:
Our ultimate aim is to enable our children to be good citizens here and in the kingdom of God, to sow seeds based on Christ’s commandments ‘to love God and love one another’, providing an education that will help equip them for life, giving values which will shape their growth and development as human beings long after they leave Our Lady’s School.
