Welcome to St Ursula’s Catholic Primary School. The school is first and foremost a Catholic school and it is in this Catholicity that the school finds its identity.
St Ursula’s vision remains rooted in our Mission Statement “With God at the heart of our St Ursula’s family, we welcome all as we learn and grow together.” The core values of our school focus on high expectations for all learners, developing skills for life, encouraging good self-esteem and developing a set of core moral values based upon the teachings of Jesus Christ.
These values are core to every part of our lives. These values are reflected in the way that we treat each other, the way that we look for every day opportunities to help those in need and in the example that we demonstrate to all those we meet.
St Ursula’s aims to provide a stimulating and exciting environment. We believe that all children thrive in an environment in which they are happy, challenged and secure: secure in the knowledge that they are safe and cared for; challenged to achieve their best; and happy in the knowledge they are each appreciated for their individuality and their achievements.
The school offers a broad and balanced curriculum, incorporating the National Curriculum, aimed at developing confident learners with enquiring minds. We have high expectations of all our children in every aspect of school life. We endeavour to enable them each to achieve their potential through high standards of behaviour and outstanding learning experiences. We aim to enable them to develop self-confidence and independence, recognising that each and everyone has a part to play as a responsible member of our learning community.
Children and their families in this school are well known to our community. Within our community, we welcome the parents and carers of our pupils, acknowledging the vital role they play in the education of their children. An active partnership and effective collaboration between home and school ensures our children are provided with a start to their life that they deserve as unique individuals.
