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 hope to experience 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 Care for Creation and Thankfulness. We have decided to combine the two as we think about our appreciation for what is around us in the natural and man-made world alongside our responsibilities for taking care of it, ourselves and each other.
The British value that we are considering is that of tolerance and acceptance of different faiths and beliefs. We begin the term exploring Ramadan and the importance of this special time of prayer and fasting within the Muslim faith. At all times, children are encouraged to explore their own faith and ideas whilst showing respect for the beliefs of others.
The summer term is always a busy one and this one is no exception. With the warmer weather, more sessions can be taught outside and this year, in acknowledgement of the restrictions that were imposed throughout lockdown, we are providing all children with increased opportunities to participate in a range of sports and physical activities. In addition, all children will be able to use our outdoor swimming pool to learn to swim, improve and gain water confidence.
Throughout the final term of this academic year, we look forward to growing in understanding and knowledge as we explore learning together academically, physically and spiritually in our work and play.
