Are you looking for a school for your child this coming September? (2021) We still have a couple of opportunities within this year group. If you would like your child to attend St. Catherine's Catholic Primary School, please contact our admin team at admin@stcatherines.swindon.sch.uk and they will talk to you about what to do next.

We currently also have Nursery sessions available, for children over the age of 3, on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday and have afternoon sessions available on Tuesday and Thursday. If this is of interest to you, please contact our admin team at admin@stcatherines.swindon.sch.uk These sessions can be paid for using Government funding, if you are eligible for it, or we can invoice you.

Jesus is at the centre of all that we do

At St Catherine’s, we work together to enable everyone to become successful learners and we inspire all members of the school community to be the best that they can be.

    Water and Fruit
    Good morning, Thank you to those who responded to our survey about fruit and homework. We are still looking at homework and will get back to you about this later. 80% of parents were in favour of children having fresh fruit or vegetables only at breaktimes, and several other parents were happy if we included dried fruit such as raisins or dried apricots. From after half-term, this will be the policy implemented in school. Children who bring anything other than fresh fruit or vegetables, or dried fruit in its original form, down at playtime will be asked to go and put it back in their lunchboxes for lunchtime. The Government provide fruit and for Early Years and Key Stage 1 children already and this will continue to happen. Additionally, over time, more and more children have been bringing squash into school in their water bottles. We have always had a water only policy in school although over the last two years, things have understandably slipped a little. The reason we have this policy is two fold: first of all, as a school, we are supposed to encourage healthy choices and water is considered to be the healthiest option. Chilled water is freely available in school for all children. Secondly, we have had several incidents of bottles being knocked over in the past. When it is just water that is spilt, it isn't a problem to clear things up and dry off work. When it is squash or flavoured/fizzy water, it is sticky and messy and children's work has been ruined. In future, children who have squash in their bottles will be asked to put them in their bags for lunchtime. Children may absolutely have squash or juice cartons with their lunch but we will only be allowing them to have water whilst they are in the classrooms. If children are asked to put bottles in their bags, then they will still be able to access the water fountains throughout the day as we have paper cups available for this purpose. Many thanks for responding to the questionnaire and for your support, Miss Burke and Mrs Cole

    School Safe Environment Zone Proposal - Davenwood
    Please find attached information which I have been asked to share with you by Swindon Borough Council. This sets out proposals to make Davewood safer for the children of St. Catherine's. Please address all comments to the Council, via the address provided in the information, as comments sent to the school will not be part of the public consultation and therefore cannot be considered by the Council. Thank you, Miss Burke

    St. Catherine's Open Evening
    Good morning, We are delighted to finally have the opportunity to welcome you back into school. On Tuesday 28th September, all classrooms in the school will be open between 3:30pm and 5pm. In your child's classroom, you will be able to meet your child's teacher, they will tell you a bit about the year ahead and share some examples of what your child will be learning. There will be plenty of time for those who have more than one child to visit different classrooms. This is an informal occasion to give you the chance to come back into school and to get to know those who work so closely with your children. Formal Parents' Evenings will take place on 4th and 5th October, which will give you the opportunity to talk about your children individually in more depth. As we are going to be inside and parents are not a part of the whole school bubble, we are asking that those who are able to wear a face covering to this event. Many thanks for your understanding. We hope that lots of you will be able to join us. Miss Burke
