It is with great pleasure that we extend a very warm welcome to St Teresa's, and our School Website.

We are a Catholic Primary School and as such we believe that the ethos of our school must, in all aspects, reflect the teachings of Christ in the Gospels. Indeed, Our aim is to provide a high quality Christian Education based upon the teachings of Christ in the Gospels, where each individual can live life to the full; love like Jesus, learn from every opportunity and grow together in faith.

We hope that you enjoy looking through our website and sharing many of the special events and moments that take place in our school.  Should you require any further information, or you would like to visit our school then please do not hesitate to contact us.

ptfa news



On Monday evening, the members of the PTFA met to begin planning for the Summer Fayre which will take place on Saturday 24th June.  Are you in a position, either through your own business or through your employer, to support the PTFA in some way?  They are looking for donations for the raffle and auction.  If you think you are in a position to help, please speak to either myself, Mrs Scarisbrick or a member of the PTFA committee. 

In addition, the PTFA viewed four library plans from different providers and they finally agreed on the plans from the company Incube.  The plans are available to view in the school entrance.  We are very excited, and grateful to the PTFA, for the opportunity to promote reading with this new facility.



Governing Body Meetings

On Wednesday evening, the governing body met to discuss how they intend to move forward strategically. In addition, they received subject reports on English from Mrs Cook and on Computing and PSHE from Mrs Grant.

Mrs Connor

 If any parents/carers would like to contribute towards Mrs Connor’s retirement gift in recognition of her 13 years of dedicated service then please send any contributions to the school office in an envelope.  Thank you.

Mother’s Day Assembly

Thank you to Mrs McGrath, Miss Fenelon, all the KS1 staff and our Year One and Two children for leading our beautiful assembly today to celebrate Mother’s Day.  The children read beautifully; recited poetry; painted striking portraits and sang a lovely song that I am sure brought a tear to many eyes.  We hope all our mums enjoy a relaxing day on Sunday.  Happy Mother’s Day to you all!
