Welcome to Our School
It is with great pleasure that we extend a very warm welcome to St Teresa's.
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.

Wrap Around Care– Breakfast Club and After School Club
Since the initial school closure in March, the one area of school which has suffered greatly in regards to the financial implication is our wraparound care provision. Unfortunately, offering provision for child care at the beginning and the end of the school day is simply not financially viable as the numbers in both clubs has reduced dramatically and the current school closure has exacerbated this situation.
However, school also feels it is incredibly important to offer this service to our parents/carers in order to support families with childcare.
In the initial form, in January, that key worker parents/carers were asked to complete, 30% of families indicated that they required Breakfast Club and After School Club. However, in reality, we have only seen numbers range between 0 and 10 in both clubs. This means that the cost of running the club is more than the income. Whilst we have subsidised the cost of the clubs in other ways, this is becoming impossible as the school budget becomes ever increasingly tight.
With all this in mind, please can we ask parents/carers of key worker children to complete the survey on the home page of the school website to indicate their views about wraparound care at St Teresa’s. This will help school to plan how we can manage this provision during this current school closure.
From Monday 18th January, all bookings previously made on School Money for Breakfast Club and After School Club will be removed and all money paid will be credited to accounts. Please can we ask that if these services are required from Monday that parents/carers re-book places on School Money. Having a better understanding of numbers we are expecting will help school to plan provision more effectively and efficiently. Please can we ask that places are booked by Sunday 17th January 2021.
Thank you for your support as we endeavour to meet the needs of parents/carers without incurring increasing financial costs to school.
Survey for Wrap Around Care - Breakfast Club and After School Club
- It is with deep regret that we are required to inform our families of the temporary closure of the After School Club.
- As I am sure all parents/carers are aware managing and leading school during this current pandemic is challenging as we endeavour to maintain the highest possible safety standards for our children, families and staff.
- Since the initial school closure in March, the one area of school which has suffered greatly in regards to the financial implication is our wraparound care provision.
- As you may be aware, the Government has published further guidance regarding places in schools for children of critical/ key workers.
