St. Anthony's Catholic Primary School

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'

Government has asked parents to keep their children at home wherever possible and asked schools to remain open only for those children who absolutely need to attend. Children should only attend if necessary because parents are critical to the fight against COVID-19 and they are working. They should not attend when parents are not working.

Guidance for staff contacting children during Corona Virus closure March 2020

School Closure information.

During this difficult time, we are making efforts to provide families with lots of ideas for activities that can be completed at home. We are encouraging children and families, as you feel appropriate, to keep in contact directly with class teachers via email for feedback on or questions about these activities. Teacher email addresses are on the class web pages.

Any wider school issues should be communicated via

We will also use the school text messaging service and our Twitter feed to communicate.

Teachers in Class 3, 4 and 5 may feel it is appropriate to offer short Video Messaging sessions with their class. This is in no way compulsory for either families or teachers to use.

As a school we realise that at this time, it is difficult to commit to certain activities at certain times due to family commitments, illness etc. If Video Messaging is planned, parents will be contacted via text message with further information. This service is not meant to replace school classroom learning.
