Headteacher's Welcome

I would like to welcome you to St Catherine’s Catholic Primary School website. I hope you will find your visit both stimulating and exciting. During your visit to our website, you will be able to view some of the different activities undertaken by our pupils and get a flavour of our rich and stimulating curriculum.

St Catherine’s achieved Academy status on 1st September 2012. Together, with its sister parish school, St Mary’s, St Catherine’s educates the children of St Mary’s Parish in Swindon. With both schools achieving academy status, a collaborative partnership has been born. With the retirement of St Catherine’s Headteacher, the Governing Body of St Catherine’s decided to appoint the Headteacher of St Mary’s as Executive Head of St Catherine’s. This will inevitably lead to a very close working partnership.

The most recent OFSTED (Dec 2009) judged the school to be good with a number of outstanding features, most notably in pupil behaviour and spiritual, moral and cultural development.

Above all, we place Jesus,  his teachings and his values at the centre of what we do. Our Mission Statement states that:  “Jesus is at the centre of everything we do”.  This is lived out in our daily work at school and through our worship and prayer life.

Our Mission Statement

At St Catherine's we put Jesus at the centre of all we do. We welcome everyone into our happy school family, where we encourage children to grow as confident learners. We recognise that each person is unique and special; everyone is valued and respected.
