Welcome

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.

Parent Governor Election Result

A letter regarding the parent governor election result has been sent home this week.  The majority of the 39 votes received were allocated to Mrs. K. Haskayne who is now elected as a parent governor for the next 4 years. 

Mrs Haskayne would like to thank parents/carers for their support and she looks forward to continuing working with the whole school community to keep our children safe.  Following on from the sessions provided by Mrs Haskayne at the last parent’s evening, we would appreciate any suggestions from parents/carers for future sessions of support.
