Welcome to Holy Family Catholic Primary School website. As an outstanding Catholic school, we support our parents and families, to help their children to continue grow in the love of Christ to achieve their full potential. It is a privilege to be a Headteacher and an even greater privilege to be the Acting Headteacher of Holy Family.
Here at Holy Family, we do not see any circumstances that should be a barrier to learning and progress. We hold the highest of expectations and work to support each child to achieve success, not only academically, but socially, morally, spiritually and culturally. As a result, high aspirations lead to high standards at Holy Family. It is our hope that by giving our children the very best start in life, it will put them on a solid trajectory for their future. We believe this to be not just a matter of importance, but a matter of social justice. We encourage our children to work with a growth mind set and understand the steps of learning through metacognition. This is supported by a knowledge rich, engaging curriculum. Pupils are encouraged to use enquiry skills to acquire knowledge and collaborative working is encouraged to develop a conceptual understanding of knowledge.
With our faith at the centre of everything we do, our carefully designed topics are embedded with a social, moral and spiritual purpose and where possible, they reflect the cultural heritage of our pupils and also our locality. Our exceptional staff, visionary governing body and supportive parish of St James has together helped create the conditions to nurture spiritually, grow in faith and live our mission to ’learn, believe and seek to make the right choices as Gods children’.
