It is with great pleasure that that I welcome you to the St. Anthony’s Catholic Primary School website. Here you can start to discover what makes St. Anthony’s such a special place, why children love to be here and why they remember it with such affection after they have left.
St Anthony’s will be a school filled with a buzz of happy activity and the warmth of positive relationships between pupils and adults. The children will be taught a broad and balanced curriculum by wonderful teachers, and the academic standards will be high. Yet, St Anthony’s will be about so much more than that. It will be about our Catholic faith that teaches children to follow the example of Jesus. It will be about giving everyone the opportunity to shine and be proud; it will be about having the confidence to have a go at anything and the belief that you can succeed. We will continue to teach the children to have pride in themselves and to work harmoniously with each other. St Anthony’s will continue to be a place of acceptance and respect for the beliefs of others and a sense of pride when others do well. It will be about the fun, magic and laughter of school life and the making of all those memories that last into old age.
I believe that it is these things that make our children lively, confident, and thoughtful and is why they move on to fulfilling lives built upon the Gospel values and strong foundations laid in the school.
May I assure you that I am committed to working in partnership with you in your child’s development. Therefore, if you need to speak to me about anything regarding your child’s education, please feel free to do so. If I am able to, we can speak immediately or, if not, we can make an appointment at the earliest convenience.
Mr Peter Johnson
