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.

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'

Happy New Year

Posted: Jan 9, 2017 by: 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.
