The children, staff and Governors at Holy Family Catholic Primary School would like to welcome you to our fantastic website.
My name is Mrs d’Arcy and I am fortunate and especially proud to be the Headteacher of this wonderful and very successful outstanding school. Our school is staffed by a dedicated team of talented and caring professionals who give their best to all of our children.
Holy Family is a Voluntary Aided Roman Catholic primary school for children aged 3 to 11. The children are taught in eight single age group classes, including a nursery class for our youngest children. The school works under the trusteeship of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Salford, is governed by its own Governing Body, and maintained by Salford Local Authority.
Holy Family Catholic Primary School has amazing children, staff and Governors who all share the common belief that Jesus Christ is at the centre of all we do. This is reflected in our school mission statement ‘As Holy Family, we learn, believe and seek to make the right choices, as God's children’ which permeates throughout the School, thus creating a caring community where everyone is valued and treated with respect and dignity. We place a very strong emphasis on providing the best learning for all and we are proud of our caring and inclusive ethos, creating the happy environment in which our children learn. As a result, our children not only achieve excellent standards, but they also develop the personal skills needed to be happy and fulfilled individuals.
Within our school day, we lead the children in the understanding and practice of our Catholic faith. We welcome children of other faiths and include provision for their spiritual growth within the overall Catholic ethos. The children happily play, learn, and pray together within our diverse school community.
Whilst the website is a good introduction to the School, I wholeheartedly recommend that prospective parents visit us. I would very much welcome the opportunity to meet you, answer your questions and most of all let you see our great school in action.
