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.

Tennis Competition

Congratulation to Isaac Portela-Baxter, Joshua Stevens, Kitty Penman and Lily Martin who represented our school in a tennis competition at Glenburn High School on Tuesday. Not only did they play very well and came second, they displayed wonderful sportsmanship attitude and behaviour. Well done!

Hatching Eggs

Our fertilised hens eggs continue to be cared for by Year Five and Year One children.   We are counting down the days; the children have been weighing the eggs to check for growth inside; topping up the water and checking the temperature and humidity on a regular basis. Watch this space for more updates.


Next week will see our Year Six children take their end of Key Stage Two SATS tests. The children have worked consistently and conscientiously over the last few months to prepare for these tests and I am sure this hard work and effort will be reflected in the results. Both myself, Mrs Dunn and Mrs Gaskell are very proud of the class and we wish them the best of luck.

Reception Outdoor Area

Please may I request that parents ensure that children, when entering the playground in the morning and leaving at the end of the day, refrain from playing with the equipment in our Reception Outdoor Area, including the sand, water and mud kitchen. This will enable the staff to prepare the area for our children’s lessons more effectively.

Children with Packed Lunches

Please could parents ensure that if children require a spoon in order to eat their packed lunch that it is provided within their lunch box. As a result of school providing children on packed lunches with a spoon, there are now very few remaining in our school kitchen!
