At St. Catherine’s, we are committed to providing children of nursery and primary school ages with a child-centered learning environment where all children flourish socially, emotionally, academically, physically and spiritually. Each child is encouraged to achieve their full potential and celebrate their uniqueness. At the heart of this is our strong caring ethos based on mutual respect and gospel values. The school actively promotes the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

St Catherine’s was considered by Ofsted as outstanding in Personal Development and Behaviour and Attitudes in 2022; our pupil achievement and local authority visitors continue to support this judgement. This confirms our commitment to supporting every child emotionally, socially and spiritually so that they reach the high standards and expectations we have for each and every one of them.

Our children and their families tell us pupils are happy and feel safe. We encourage strong home school links where communication is key. We operate a policy where all parents are encouraged to develop a relationship with our teaching staff and leadership team who will readily make themselves available to discuss your child’s progress and wellbeing. We pride ourselves on the strong partnerships we have built with all members of our community.

I look forward to meeting you.
