I am delighted to welcome you to St. Christopher's Catholic Primary School. Having worked at St. Christopher's for over 20 years, I am extremely proud this year, to be welcoming you as Headteacher of our amazing school. St. Christopher's is a school which values and cares for every member of its community and works hard to help them to become the best they can possibly be. We value all aspects of school life and support and challenge our children to develop as well-rounded, kind, caring and independent individuals. We want our children to love coming to school and to feel proud to be a part of the St. Christopher's family.
Our children are kind, well-behaved and full of positivity. They work hard each day to learn new things and support one another and inspire us constantly. Our highly trained staff work extremely hard and with enthusiasm to provide pupils with an exciting, memorable and fun curriculum which matches their needs and supports their development. We have the support of an exceptional pastoral team, who support our children and their families and a skilled governing body, who continually move our school forward. Our fantastic parents and families support our school and are actively engaged in many aspects of school life.
We are very proud of our many achievements across a wide range of areas.
In June 2015 we were recognised by Ofsted as a 'Good School' in all areas. A further visit in 2019 confirmed that we remain a 'Good School'. In June 2019 we were inspected by the Archdiocese of Liverpool and received outstanding judgements in all areas, 'The quality of provision for the Catholic Life of the school is outstanding'. In 2018 we were recognised as a School of Sanctuary in recognition of our safe and welcoming environment. We have achieved the Gold Quality Marks for Reading and Maths in recognition of all that we offer from Nursery to Year 6. In recognition of our sports curriculum, we have achieved the Silver School Games Award and have also achieved the Silver Primary Science Quality Mark.
We have large, bright classrooms, wonderful outdoor learning facilities and our own Forest School Lead Teacher, a school library and a 'Dream Room' (4D learning space), which all help to enhance the children's learning. Our children also benefit from an extensive programme of educational visits and extra-curricular activities.
St. Christopher's Catholic Primary School is a place where we live out our Mission Statement every day by Caring, Learning and Inspiring. I hope you enjoy looking at our website and if you require any additional information, please don't hesitate to call the school office on 0151 486 2835.
