School Description

St Thomas' Catholic Primary School is a Voluntary-Aided school (we are not part of a multi-academy trust).

We are a dedicated and committed team of staff who enjoy close links with our parents and the church. We often refer to ourselves as a 'school family', committed to academic quality, personal and spiritual development and high standards of behaviour and respect in a caring environment.

We are a one-form school and currently have a roll of 210 pupils, organised into 7 year groups, Foundation Stage through to Year 6.

The school had an Ofsted inspection in January 2016, when the school was graded as 'Outstanding' in all areas. In the Ofsted report, the inspector commented “The behaviour of pupils is outstanding. Pupils are polite, courteous, friendly and supremely self-assured. Most possess levels of self-confidence unusual for their age”.

Our successful Ofsted inspection is allowing us to think more creatively about the opportunities we are providing for our pupils; for example - we host a DT day towards the end of each term whereby the normal school day collapses and the pupils engage in planning, designing, making and evaluating their products.

As a team of dedicated teachers and support staff, we are extremely proud of how our pupils develop academically, spiritually, morally and socially. Ofsted went on to say: "The school's Catholic heritage provides a framework for this exceptionally inclusive culture and ethos. Pupils are expected to treat each other as they expect to be treated themselves."

This has also been validated by our S48 RE Inspection graded 'Outstanding', March 2017.
