We are collecting donations for our Harvest Celebration Assembly. Please send them into school with your child or drop them off with the staff at Reception.      WE ARE RECRUITING - CHECK THE VACANCIES SECTION OF OUR WEBSITE FOR MORE INFORMATION.

At St. Anthony’s we bring faith, fun, learning and culture together, relating Christ’s message of love, mercy and kindness to modern life. Our Catholic identity is not exclusive to RE lessons and worship but shines throughout every aspect of school and every adult in school, helping the children in their lifelong journey with God as part of our community of faith as we ourselves journey towards our 'Outstanding 2020 Vision'.

Our wonderful children are bright eyed and enthusiastic: they want to achieve in all areas of the curriculum - thanks to the work of our staff and governors and the steadfast support of our parents. 

We hope you enjoy browsing our website and even following us on Twitter. We can only show you a fraction of the vibrant work that happens here each day and offer you a glimpse of our exciting developments. I would love you to accept an invite to come and visit us in person where you can see every child, every chance, every day in action together with Christ. 

Our contact details are at the top of the page. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact myself or the office staff: Mrs Robinson and Mr Cawley.

We look forward to welcoming you, your children and your family to the family of St. Anthony's Catholic Primary School as we stay focused on our 'Outstanding 2020 Vision'.

Mrs A Carrick, Headteacher

Harvest Festival Celebration Assemby

sacps-admin on: Head Teacher's Blog

I am looking forward to a packed Celebration Assembly tomorrow, we have lots to get through. We will be sharing all the food that has been donated, wishing a group of children Happy Birthday and giving a variety of certificates for amazing work. This has been a very busy half term with two new senior members of staff and some changes but we have achieved lots due to the professionalism of all our staff and the contribution our families make to our school. Thank you for all your support, enjoy the break and we'll see you all in November. Don't forget we have a teacher training day on Monday 31st October so school is closed to pupils. 


We are recruiting!

sacps-admin on: Head Teacher's Blog

We are entering exciting times again! The Governing Body have completed all the necessary documentation in order to advertise the new Head Teacher post. All information can be found on our school website at http://www.stanthonysshipley.org.uk/news/vacancies

The advertisement will go into national publications in order to attract the very best candidates possible.

This is a wonderful school with caring and professional staff, amazing children and very supportive families. We look forward to showing lots of prospective candidates round to see just what an amazing opportunity this is for the right person. For more information please contact the office. 


The Gambian Schools' Trust

sacps-admin on: Head Teacher's Blog

On Monday in Assembly we found out more about the Gambian Schools' Trust, which is one of our charities. We hold '20p Tuesday' each week in school. This money is sent to the charity to help provide much needed resources to enable more children to attend school across Gambia. We were humbled by the work of the many volunteers and just how much the achieve with so little. We all left the assembly feeling much more grateful for what we have and determined to do even more for this worthy cause. Please click here or go to http://www.stanthonysshipley.org.uk/catholic-life/charities to see some of the pictures we used. 


Another wonderful week.

sacps-admin on: Head Teacher's Blog

Well, we have managed to pack lots into the last week in school, seeing more children making progress across the curriculum, celebrating birthdays, sharing certificates in our Celebration assembly and hearing all about the school in India we sponsor. There have been so many special moments in school. Class 5 also took part in their class Mass on Friday. We have added dates to the diary in the run up to Christmas, please take a look so you don't miss anything. The PTFA have also arranged some exciting events, again these dates are on the school website. We are collecting for our Harvest Celebration Assembly, if you can spare some non-perishable foods we would be delighted to share them with people less fortunate. Next week continues to look just as busy, with the photographer visiting school on Tuesday. Two weeks to go to Half Term and still lots to do!


Fantastic start to the new academic year.

sacps-admin on: Head Teacher's Blog

We are now into our fifth week of the 2016/7 academic year and already I have seen some amazing learning across school. We have been into every class to see how well everyone is teaching and learning and how supportive everyone is. Our MACMILLANS COFFEE MORNING was a great success with over £140 raised so far. Well done to everyone.
