I would like to welcome you to St Catherine’s Catholic Primary School on behalf of
our enthusiastic children, their supportive parents, all of our dedicated staff,
our committed Governing Body and our Parish communities. All of their support, enthusiasm
and dedication makes St Catherine’s a very special place.
Our aim at St Catherine’s is to provide a broad and balanced education with opportunities
for each child to develop their individual talents and potential in a caring, safe
and supportive, Christian environment. We want our children to develop into happy
and confident young people, who value and respect themselves and all around them
and who know that each one of
them is unique and loved by God.
As they move through the school our children will develop an understanding that lifelong
learning is at the centre of our school life. We believe it is important that the
children learn to respect themselves and all members of our community. The children
will have increasing opportunities to take on responsibilities for one another through
our Buddy System, through the school council and through belonging to one of our
four houses. We value celebrating the achievements of our children. We also ensure
our children and our community have fun and benefit from the partnership that exists
between us all.
We are a caring, happy and successful school where our faith lived through the Gospel
values enables us to continue to grow. I look forward to the journey that we will
take together over the next few years, and to the development of lasting relationships.
As you read our prospectus you will gain an insight into how our school is organised
and the many opportunities all of our children are given to help them grow and develop.
If you would like to pay us a visit, please contact the school office and I will
be delighted to show you round our lovely school.
