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

Happy New Year

sacps-admin on: Head Teacher's Blog

Now that we are into the new year I would like to take this opportunity to welcome everyone back to school following the Christmas break - it seems a long time ago even now! From a personal point of view this half term is my least favourite one - Christmas has been and gone and we have dark mornings and dark evenings to contend with. I seem to spend half my life travelling in darkness. However, past experience has told me that this half term will fly by and before we know it we will be looking forward to Easter. My family constantly tell me off for segmenting the year like this but I think this is just how teachers view the year!

We are already starting to think about the SATs for pupils in Years 2 and 6 along with the Phonics screening for pupils in Year 1 (and those who need to retake the assessment from year 2). We are, as always, determined that our pupils will achieve their potential and show everyone just how capable they are. I will be meeting with the teachers and subject leaders in the coming weeks to ensure we are on track. I know our Governors will want updating in their forthcoming meetings. 

Our "Big Maths, Beat That" is running smoothly in school with lots of children very enthusiastic about their progress. Well done to them, and their families, for all their hard work. This half term we are focusing on Reading, a skill that not only helps all aspects of learning but provides hours of enjoyment, entertainment and escapism! Your support, is as always, greatly appreciated. 

If you would like some suggestions about reading activities, what happens in SATs or how to support your child please don't hesitate to speak to your child's class teacher. We will be arranging information meetings nearer the time.

Yesterday I received an email from CAFOD with lots of suggestions and ideas for supporting others and having fun at this festive time. At a time when we are all busy preparing for the forthcoming events it is good to take a minute or two to see how we can help people, many that we don't know. I thought it worth sharing the link to the website with you - there are activities for children to do, ways you can support the organisation along with many other inspiring suggestions and stories. Take a look if you have 5 minutes to spare in your busy schedule.

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
