Your child is very special. We hope we can work in partnership to create a bond of trust and support between home and school for your child.

This is a small school in which we hope to foster a real family atmosphere and a caring Christian Community, hard working and courteous. Each child is encouraged to feel confident of his or her own worth and ability. We believe that a school is made up of people and not buildings and in the light of this we hope everyone in our school community enjoys being a member of it, and feels a personal commitment to is because it is 'ours'.

Priory School is a Roman Catholic (Voluntary Aided) Primary School for children aged 4 to 11 and is closely linked with the Parish and Diocese. Whilst the majority of children in our school are Catholic, where space is available we also admit children whose parents wish their children to receive a Catholic education. All children are treated equally within the school.


  • Valuing the individual qualities of each child and encouraging them to aim for their best in everything they do
  • Providing excellent and inspirational teaching that results in high standards
  • Providing a broad, balanced and extended curriculum based upon the needs and interests of our community
  • Showing we are a ‘learning community’ where the learning of adults and children is actively encouraged
  • Providing a safe and stimulating environment in which to learn
  • Helping children understand the world in which they live.
  • Listening to children and parents


Children at Priory are often engaged in work which develops skills of research, testing, investigating, using information, asking questions, solving problems, drawing conclusions and presenting their findings for others.

All children in Years 1 to 6 follow the core subjects of English, Maths, Science ICT and R.E. and the five foundation subjects of Music, Physical Education, Art, History and Geography.

Throughout the curriculum, opportunities will be provided for equal opportunities, a personal, moral and social awareness, special educational provisions and information technology.


Children enter school in the second year of the Foundation Stage and with a wide range of different experiences. In the reception class we will build on these to encourage; confidence, social skills, ability to communicate and independence. Children will be given the opportunity to develop through structured play activities and by using a wide range of learning strategies to help them progress.

The Foundation Curriculum covers six areas of learning:

  • personal, social and emotional development communication
  • language and literacy
  • mathematical development
  • knowledge and understanding of the world
  • physical development
  • creative development
The children’s learning and development is planned around the Early Learning Goals and in turn these link in with Numeracy and Literacy Strategies which help with a smooth transition into Key Stage 1.
