St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Primary School

Welcome to St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Primary School!

Here at St. Thomas Aquinas each child is very special to us. We want your child to achieve success both academically, socially and to grow in the knowledge of the Catholic faith.

We want your child to feel happy and secure at our school. Staff will do all they can to achieve this. We want your child to become a confident person, an enthusiastic learner and to have fond memories of his/her time at St. Thomas Aquinas School. We welcome our partnership with you to achieve these aims.

I am confident that you will find our new school website both inspiring and informative, but should you require more information please do not hesitate to contact us. We always strive to help.

Our School

Our school was established in 1967 as a combined school serving children aged 4-12. In 2005 the school was converted to a primary school and now caters for children aged between 4 and 11. It is a voluntary aided school belonging to the Diocese of Northampton and the parish of St. Thomas Aquinas in Bletchley and religious teaching in accordance with the Roman Catholic faith is given.

There is usually one class per year but when intake has been very large the children are split into two equal classes.

At present there are approximately 300 children in school. We have ten lovely, bright classrooms, a well-stocked library, a state-of-the-art computer suite, a music room, a dining room, a healthy eating tuck shop, an outdoor play area for our foundation stage children, a beautiful courtyard, the secret garden (where we can go pond-dipping), and a big hall in which we hold assemblies and productions. We have two playgrounds and new adventure play equipment outside in leafy surroundings. The virtual tour of the school will be online soon.


As soon as you enter our school you will see the school mission statement:

"I have called you by your name. You are mine" Isaiah 43

We follow Jesus' example: We respect, value and appreciate all members of our community.

We recognise that all of our pupils are unique and precious and so we strive to meet their needs and develop their individual gifts.

We encourage our children to achieve academic excellence across the curriculum, so that they can contribute positively to society.


Our admission criteria are as follows:

Children baptised into the Roman Catholic faith are admitted.

The planned admission limit at reception is fixed at 30.

Within this limit priority will be given to siblings of children already at the school.

Priority will then be given to children from families who are known to the clergy as attending Mass regularly and frequently. Within this group priority will be given to children living in the Catholic parish of St. Thomas Aquinas and All Saints, Bletchley and then those from neighbouring Catholic parishes.


Children study subjects within the context of Christian beliefs and staff ensure that the demands of the national curriculum are met. We strive to make the curriculum exciting to motivate and inspire our pupils. We believe in providing our children with as many opportunities as possible to develop their own talent. We invite guest speakers and specialist teachers into school to support pupils' learning and encourage visits to enrich and broaden children's educational experiences.

Our goal is to create an environment for learning in which children can develop their talents and are able to realise their full potential.

As a Catholic school, religious education is the cornerstone of the curriculum. RE is not just a timetabled subject; children study all subjects within the context of Christian beliefs. Preparation for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Communion forms an important part of the curriculum for children in Year 3. All children experience Penitential Services and School-based Liturgies. The Mass is an important part of the life of the School; children regularly participate in the preparation and celebration of a School Mass.

Examples of children's work can be found in the Children's Work section.

Useful websites are to be found in the Homework Help section.

We expect children to change from muddy or wet shoes into a pair of school shoes for indoor use when they come into school. It is very useful if children have a simple cloth bag with their name on it to keep their shoes, plimsolls & PE kit in.

All logo school uniform can be purchased from the school. Orders are processed three to four times a year. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT ALL ITEMS OF CLOTHING, SHOES & PLIMSOLLS ARE MARKED WITH YOUR CHILD'S NAME.


Our special needs policy is founded upon particular beliefs and values:

We believe that human beings have a divine origin and an eternal destiny. We believe that each individual is unique and equal to others regardless of sex, nationality, colour, creed, class, wealth or intellectual ability. We believe that all people are formed, sustained and affirmed through the process of relating to others. If we are to be individuals there is no escape from interdependence. We believe that education is a moral transaction between one generation and another. It takes place in communities, the home, the school and the parish.

Our purpose in special education is derived from these beliefs.

Catholic beliefs should permeate all decisions concerning SEN in the way we interpret the law and the policies and actions we produce. The quality of our decisions and actions are not to be judged solely upon the ease with which they fit within our rights under the law, but primarily by the way with which they reside within the principles and values of our faith.

The school has a set procedure for identifying and assessing children with SEN which involves teachers, parents and the children themselves.
