Statements to live by....


Dear Parents and Carers, Over the next few weeks the children will be working together to...Grow towards human wholeness in body, mind and spirit and learn to keep themselves and others safe’


Please take the opportunity to discuss with your child at home and support them as they learn about....


  • I know when to ask for help and who to ask for help
  • I can recognise comfortable and uncomfortable feelings
  • I know how to help others when they are in trouble
  • I understand what trust means


How can we recognise when a situation is not safe and what should we do?

The school’s curriculum is broad, balanced and provides a wide range of exciting experiences for the pupils.

Pupils participate in a good range of competitive sporting events against other local schools.'


RE Inspection Report June 2015



Pupils benefit from a safe, calm learning environment,strongly based upon Gospel values and where the headteacher, staff and governors very clearly lead by example in encouraging and supporting pupils to make the school mission statement: 'Christ be within me' a living day-to-day classroom life of the school. All pupils are encouraged to take responsibility for developing their God given gifts and talents for the benefit of the school and wider community. Pupils' behaviour and attitudes to learning are exemplary.' Pupils are proud of their school, its rich Catholic heritage and strong parish links. Parents and pupils comment positively on the very strong family feeling of ''belonging'' at the school.
