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.

Parent/Carer Survey regarding Reopening Plans in September 2020

Dear Parents/Carers,

As we approach the end of the Summer Term, we would like to take this opportunity to express our thanks and gratitude to our whole school community for your support over the last academic year.  In the final few weeks of any year, we spend time reflecting on the year gone by and begin preparations for September with an improvement plan that is inspired by the challenges and successes that we have experienced.

This year has presented opportunities like no other.  From all the trials and tests, triumphs and achievements, that we have faced during the months of school closure, we have all emerged stronger than before.  Our successes are as a result of our whole school community continuing to work together for the benefit of our children. The kind and encouraging messages of support along with the patience and understanding parents/carers have shown the staff and myself have offered great encouragement and reassurance.  We really are very grateful to you all.

In particular, we would like to offer sincere thanks and appreciation to the parents/carers of children in our Year Six class.  We are very disappointed that we have not had the chance to complete the school year entirely for your families.  It is my privilege on behalf of the governors and staff, to thank you, our parents/carers of Year 6 2020, for all the support that you have shown our school throughout the last seven years. There are many wide and varied, large and small, roles that you have taken which have contributed to the success and happiness of not only your own children but the whole school.  We are very grateful for all your offerings to our school community for it is this that helps to make St Teresa’s such a special place to develop and grow.  We wish all our children in Year 6 much love and best wishes as they being the next exciting chapter of their lives. 

The staff and I would like to thank all of our children.  Throughout the school closure, our children have worked hard at home to complete the home learning, without their friends and teachers for support and inspiration.  We have really enjoyed the opportunity keep in touch with their experiences through SeeSaw and Zoom sessions.  The children who have been in school over the last few months, have embraced every opportunity, have been great fun and entertained our staff every day.  We have played games, we have built dens in Forest Schools and we have enjoyed countless opportunities paint, draw, climb, build and sit against a wall for the wall sit challenge.  It has been an honour to care for the children of key workers, we hope they have enjoyed it as much as we have.

In addition, we would like to take the opportunity to thank our wonderful staff team. During this tumultuous year, staff have been adaptable to change beyond all recognition.  They have provided care and teaching in school almost every single week day since March including during their holidays and on bank holidays. They have endeavoured to deliver the ever-changing guidance from the government whilst simultaneously ensuring our children experience a nurturing and caring environment where they feel safe, secure, and most importantly are happy and have fun.  Whilst working at home, they have produced curriculum documents that we are incredibly proud to share with you all on our school website.  We are really excited to be able to share this work with our children in September.

At the end of this week, we will say goodbye and thank you to Miss. K. Lowe, Mrs. K. Phillips and Mrs. S. Charlton who have all served our school wonderfully in their roles in class and the office over the last few years.  We wish them all much love and best wishes for the future.

Finally, thank you to our governing body.  The governors bring a great deal of experience and expertise to school and they share this along with their extensive knowledge and talents in order to challenge and support us to be the best we can be.  All on a voluntary basis.  We really are very grateful to them all.

With children, families, staff and governors like ours it is clear to see why having the opportunity to be the headteacher of a school like ours is a sacred privilege.  I am very proud of our school community and everything that we achieve and experience together.  I look forward to more exciting opportunities and a fun-filled year in September.

School closes today (17th September 2020) for the summer holidays and reopens on Wednesday 2nd September for all children.  More information will follow in August with more specific details for the reopening.

We wish you all a very happy, sunny and relaxing summer holiday and we look forward to welcoming you all back in September to your new classes.
