Acting Headteacher - Miss J. Geran

We are very proud of our school, serving Catholic and non- Catholic families in the busy community of Chelmsley Wood, and would like to extend a warm welcome to new families and visitors.

At the centre of our school life is the belief in Jesus Christ and all His teachings, and the Christian faith brought to us through the Catholic Church. Everything we do at school is based upon this foundation, which allows us to have a strong identity and a loving, warm and friendly learning environment. We strive for excellence through offering challenge and support to encourage the best performance from everyone.

We give opportunities for children to confront difficulties and question injustice in an informed and productive manner to help them become resourceful and us to improve and cater for their needs. We encourage independence through an understanding of self -discipline and facilitate motivation from within.

St. Patrick’s is a school that we are proud of, with children and families that we respect and care for. It is a school that we would be very happy to come to, if we were pupils now.

I look forward to meeting you and your son and/or daughter and discussing their needs and interests, in the hope that we can accommodate them in our school.

Admission Arrangements


Children who are aged 4 years by 31st August are eligible for admission to school (Reception class) during the following Autumn. Children who are aged 3 years by 31st August are eligible for admission to the Nursery (part-time).

Parents wishing their children to attend St. Patrick’s Catholic Primary School should study the criteria for admission and complete an application form, available from the school office.

The Head teacher is always pleased to meet prospective parents and show them around the school.


The school has a standard entry number of 30, as determined by the LEA, DfES and agreed by Governors. This allows one class group for each year from Reception to Year 6. Year groups are organised into three phases of education.

Foundation: Nursery & Reception (age 3-5)

During the first years at school children gain sound foundations in six key areas. ‘Language & Literacy, Mathematics, Knowledge and Understanding of the World, Physical Development, Creative Development and Personal, Social and Emotional Development.’

Key Stage 1: Years 1 & 2 (age 5-7)

In this key stage the children follow the programmes of study set out in the National Curriculum 2000. Although the academic progress of our pupils is important, we also continue to make personal, social, spiritual and emotional development a high priority.

Our young pupils need a lot of love, care and encouragement, to build their confidence, motivation and sense of achievement. We foster a wonder and excitement in their developing world and a keenness to discover and learn.

Mathematics, Literacy and Science are core subjects and assessments of pupils’ achievements are made throughout the year.

To ensure that the standards of care and education are maintained, a Phase Manager oversees both the Foundation and Key Stage 1.

Key Stage 2: Years 3, 4, 5 & 6 (age 7-11)

As pupils become more independent and have built firm foundations, they move into the third phase of the school.

The Key Stage 2 curriculum broadens their knowledge and extends their skills. Mathematics, Literacy and Science remain the core subjects but humanities and the arts give diversity and allow the interests and talents of individual children to be nurtured.

End of Key Stage assessment tests are administered in Year 6 in the core subjects.

Games and extra-curricular activities become more varied and inter school competitions and festivals are encouraged. Children are encouraged to become more independent and are given more opportunities to support their studies with related trips and experiences.

This phase is managed directly by the Deputy Head teacher.
