It's official - Ofsted say we are a GOOD school! Go to the Inspection Reports section to read the full report. 

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

Head Teacher's Blog

The latest publication can be found in our Newsletters' section but I thought it would be good to make it high profile for a week or so to share the wonderful work the Diocese music department does though my blog.

We are delighted to be able to share the Ofsted report with everyone. It reflects the hard work everyone has put in over the last two years and how committed everyone has been to making sure we achieved Good, on our journey to Outstanding. We are now taking a few weeks to consider the report and update our School Improvement Plans to incorporate the things we need to do to continue to improve. We will share the updated reports with Governors in the next couple of months then upload them to the website to you can see what we are focusing on. We are particularly proud of how the report reflects our ethos "Leaders successfully develop pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development through the school’s Christian values. Pupils have opportunities to study other faiths and cultures, such as Islam and Sikhism, and they support children in other countries who need help through their charity work". We are now making sure we enjoy the run up the Christmas Celebrations with the Christmas Fair on Friday 9th at 2pm and our Nativity performances and Carol service in the next two weeks. Please check out our calendar for the details of all our events.


Children In Need

sacps-admin on: Head Teacher's Blog

Friday was brilliant! So many children dressed in spots to celebrate Children In Need - they were wonderful to see and had so much fun during the day thanks to the fabulous activities the teachers planned. I have seen the video of the Mannequin Challenge, it's so funny! Well done to them all. We raised an awesome amount of money, so much so that our colleagues in the office are still counting. I will let you know how much we raise when we have a final figure.

Thanks everyone for your generosity and support.   Ali C


Children In Need

sacps-admin on: Head Teacher's Blog

Having been at St. Anthony's for almost ten weeks now I know what a fantastic, hard working, fun loving staff we have. I am fortunate to be working with so many amazing people at school. It is because of this that I know tomorrow is going to be wonderful. We are filling the day with 'spotty' activities in order to raise money for Children In Need. In the short time I have been here I have witnessed many occasions that demonstrate our communities' generosity, from the collections for the Bradford food bank to fundraising for schools across the world.

I am confident that tomorrow will be another demonstration of what a caring community we have. Thank you in advance for all the laughter I know we will share tomorrow as well as the money you donate to help people less fortunate than we are. #proud
