At Holy Family Catholic Primary School


Every child has the right to high quality teaching that will enable them to reach for and beyond their potential. Every child in our care will be supported to grow in Faith, to grow in Hope and to grow in Love. Growing in the Love of God, our children will become confident learners who have a desire to realise their aspirations. Our children will develop a passion for learning and its infinite possibilities in a nurturing, safe and loving Holy Family.


We are proud of the fact that this is a Catholic school and we all work enormously hard to ensure that every individual pupil is challenged and developed in every aspect of their learning. You will see that as well as being a caring family centred school we also provide an enriched curriculum where our children enjoy the arts and sports.

Holy Family Catholic Primary School is a school for boys and girls aged 4 – 11 years, where the whole staff community focus on improving outcomes for all children in the widest possible sense. We place our children at the centre of everything we do and we constantly ‘aim for outstanding’ in every area.


There are 2 classes in each year group.  Our children are taught in a mixture of 'set' and mixed ability groupings in English and Maths according to the spread of ability.  This can be changed yearly. We have developed a skills based curriculum in order to excite and engage the children in their learning. We are committed to enriching the curriculum – theme days and weeks are a feature of school life, as are visits by theatre groups and professional artists and musicians. We regularly visit places of interest both within and outside the local area. The children have wide access to music, with music throughout the school. We offer an ensemble, drumming academy, music tech mix club and choir for all to join. The school believes in offering a wide range of extra- curricular clubs, led by specialists and school staff.


At Holy Family Catholic Primary School we actively promote fundamental British Values within our curriculum. This forms part of our SMSC ethos and it is woven throughout our teaching and learning, in particular through PSHE.
