Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Primary School was opened in 1967 as the Parish School of Our Lady of Fatima, Quinton. In February 2021 the school became part of the Emmaus Multi Academy Company. The building has a pleasant, open aspect and is situated on the south side of the Hagley Road, opposite Lightwoods Park in Harborne.
The School provides for its pupils a primary curriculum with special emphasis on the teaching of the Catholic faith and regular participation in the liturgy and prayer life of the Church.
There are 213 children aged four to eleven on roll. Up to 30 children are admitted each September to the Reception Class. Children aged four years on August 31st are eligible for admission during the Autumn Term. Reception children are invited to spend some time in the school prior to commencing full-time attendance. This normally takes place during the Summer Term. At the beginning of July, a meeting is usually organised for their parents so that the school’s aims and objectives can be discussed; this year however, due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we are looking to update parents through the use of a range of technology. Parents of intending pupils are always invited to visit the school before a child is admitted – this year we will be creating a virtual tour of the school. The school is organised into seven mixed ability classes, Foundation, two classes at Key Stage 1 and four at Key Stage 2. All children are in year groups and within each class; teaching is adapted to the age and ability of the child.
If you are looking to join our school and community please read the attached information. Due to COVID restrictions we are unable to offer tours of the school. If you require any further information please contact the school office on 0121 429 2900 or firstname.lastname@example.org
