From Good to Outstanding
We are delighted to present the Mission Vision and Aims for St. Winefride’s Catholic Primary School and Nursery created and agreed by pupils, staff, parents and governors. It makes us very proud to see what we continue to achieve together for our wonderful school and our vision encourages us to move forward and make our school even better. Our aims reflect the changing educational world in which we now work, live and learn. We prepare our children to be emotionally intelligent, academically successful and have high expectations and aspirations for themselves and their futures. To learn to be self empowered within a framework of love, care, and compassion is a balance of values worth working for.
Executive Headteacher Welcome
I am very proud to welcome you to St Winefride’s Roman Catholic Primary School. We are all very proud of our school and all we do. Our children love learning and strive to do their very best. The children surprise me every day with their enthusiasm and eagerness to learn new things and make progress.
As a Catholic school our values are rooted in the teachings of Jesus and we work hard to foster these values in the children we teach.
I recognise daily the hard work and dedication of St Winefrides staff in promoting a Catholic community where everyone is valued and encouraged to grow into well-educated, caring and confident members of society. We pride ourselves on being a real ‘family’ where everybody knows, loves and looks after each other in our secure, safe and happy school.
As well as giving our pupils a firm grounding in the Catholic faith, we ensure that we deliver a broad, balanced and exciting curriculum which challenges every child, from the most able to those with special needs.
At St Winefride’s we are proud of our academic achievements, our friendly purposeful atmosphere and the outstanding extra curricular provision made available to our pupils.
We expect the highest standards from our pupils in all aspects of school life – in their attitudes to learning and in their behaviour.
We prepare our children to be emotionally intelligent, academically successful and have high expectations and aspirations for themselves and their futures. All the children will learn to be self empowered within a framework of love, care, and compassion.
We try to encourage at all times an active partnership with parents, pupils, governors and parish to help ensure the best possible education for each one of our pupils.
We hope that you enjoy looking around our website – although this is only a tiny glimpse of how very special St Winefride’s is.
As we return to some sense of normality in September please do not hesitate to contact school if you have any concerns.
These are strange times but be rest assured all the staff and the governors are fully committed and prepared for a safe steady and sustainable return.
All our wonderful staff are delighted and proud to help you and your child.
St Winefride's during lockdown and moving forward remains a haven of care, love and inspiration.
Mr. B Lavin
