Welcome To Winnies
I am very proud to welcome you to St Winefride’s Catholic Academy. We are all very proud of our school and all we do. Our children love learning and strive to do their very best with Christ at the Centre of all we do.
'Winnies' role is to provide an environment for your child that is happy, caring and safe throughout the time that they spend here. From this foundation, we strive to stretch and challenge each child to enable them to achieve and fulfil their potential. This is not just academically but, also, morally and socially.
We have very high expectations of all children in their learning, presentation, behaviour, attitude, politeness and manners. At 'Winnies' we create the conditions for learning to take place but also for our children to grow in confidence and develop respect and tolerance of others and their opinions; where mistakes are used as a learning experience and where injustice and adversity are challenged!
All my staff are caring, devoted and professional. They work effectively to provide the best possible learning experience for the children of St Winefrides.
The Faith aspect of school and parish community is our most important feature. The example of Jesus and the Gospels is evident throughout the daily life of the school. Not only does it underpin all our teaching, but in prayer and worship we help to develop the Faith journey of each individual child. In this we share a partnership not only with you as parents but, equally, with the parish as, for example, with the Sacramental programme.
We have an open door to discuss any points of interest or concerns that you may have. We value your involvement in the education of your child and particularly in light of these unprecedented times look forward to build on this partnership.
With you, we hope to play our part in providing an education which promotes in the children a confidence and strength in Faith, a love and thirst for learning and the skills to make an impact on Wibsey, Bradford and the changing world in which they live.
Please if you have any questions or concerns contact me at school and I will always aim to support you and your child/ children.
Mr. B Lavin
