The Governors and staff aim to create a caring Christian community where children can flourish in a
stimulating environment. Developing children’s faith is a central part of the school’s mission. Children
are given opportunities to pray, reflect and worship throughout the school day. We have high expectations
of all our pupils and we are committed to developing every child to the best of their ability.
The school benefits from a superb educational environment with facilities which include extensive grounds,
a fully equipped ICT suite, interactive whiteboards in each class base, a large dinner hall, communal Key
Stage areas and a multi purpose hall.
Strong links are maintained with the local parish and local community. Our parish priest, Fr. Dan
Harrison, is a frequent visitor to school and the whole school regularly joins the parish community in church
to celebrate mass. The school is the base for many parish and school groups such as the ‘Mums and Tots’
club on a Friday afternoon. The school also supports many parish activities such as the ‘Children’s
Liturgy’ group on a Sunday.
Our whole school community is committed to providing an engaging, exciting and caring curriculum which
encourages each child to develop into a capable confident Christian who enjoys life thoroughly and helps
others enjoy it.
I hope you will take time to look around our web-site. If you have any comments or questions about our
school please contact the school.
