Welcome from the Headteacher

Welcome to St Chad's Catholic Primary School's website. We are delighted that you have shown an interest in our school and hope that you find the website useful.

Ours is a happy, welcoming school, and we pride ourselves in providing a caring, happy and friendly atmosphere that nurtures all children and enables them to meet their maximum potential in all areas of their growth and development.

We believe that every child is different, yet equally important and valued.  Our beliefs and curriculum are based on our Catholic foundation and Christ is at the centre of all that we do.  We are conscious we are laying firm foundations for a lifetime of learning, and for a rapidly changing world. 

St Chad's is an exciting place, a modern forward-thinking school where a respect for traditional values and a love for learning make it a happy and nurturing community. 

We aim to give the highest priority to academic excellence through a broad, balanced, exciting and creative curriculum with a keen focus on the arts and sports.

We invite you to look around, sample the atmosphere and perhaps think about enrolling your next generation into our school, where they can begin their education as early as three.

Staff, Directors and pupils work tirelessly to continue to improve the quality of teaching and learning which is leading to progress and standards rising. 

We aim to give every young person an education of real worth, one which will equip him/her to take a place in society as a responsible, informed adult, who has high self-esteem and respect for others.  Therefore, we firmly believe that a child's education must include the widest range of opportunities, be they artistic, sporting, cultural, recreational or social, whilst respecting diversity and being curious about God’s wonderful world.

We believe that all children have an entitlement to be safe and have wide exposure to a culture of excitement and wonder. Please enjoy our school tours both in person and electronically. If you have any particular queries, we will endeavour to answer them as best as we can. This is one of the most important choices for your child, we wish it to be the best.

Come and visit us and see for yourself!
