Welcome to St Catherine’s website – whether you are new to our school, just looking or already a part of our community thank you for taking the time to visit
This term, we are looking forward to a return to some semblance of normality in school as well as within our locality; we are looking forward to being able to join together for work and play as well as welcoming families into the school, as restrictions allow.
Our Christian values for this term focus on Friendship and Compassion. We have decided to combine our thoughts on the two values throughout the term as they sit well alongside one another. Bible stories that exemplify these values include the Good Samaritan, the lowering of the paralysed man through the roof and many more. These examples of friendship and compassion along with others from contemporary life will be considered as we meet for collective worship throughout the term
The British value that we are considering is that of democracy and the rule of law. Children will learn of the importance of keeping and upholding the law and the value of living in a democratic society.
This term, we are excited to introduce the children to an abundance of play equipment that we have been collecting over the past months (thanks to all who have donated items) as we continue to work alongside an organisation called OPAL (Outdoor Play and Learning) to make sure playtimes are an opportunity to explore and discover as well as have fun.
As children settle back into school after a long summer break and the restrictions of the past year, we are looking forward to continuing our partnership with families and the local community as our children grow and develop in all aspects of life within a school that values all children and acknowledges their right to a good all round education.
