On behalf of the staff and governors of St Cuthbert's first school, I offer you a very warm welcome.
We are a small school with three classes; our early years unit caters for reception and nursery aged children; class 2 caters for year 1 and year 2 children and class 3 caters for year 3 and year 4 children. We find there are many advantages to having mixed age classes including the flexibility this allows us to educate each child at their own level of maturity and achievement.
As a Catholic school we are unique in that prayer, worship, Gospel values and the celebration of Mass are central to our school life, as we strive to allow everyone in our school community to find true meaning and value in their life. We are very proud that visitors often remark on the happy, family atmosphere that exists here.
We believe in the experience of our community being centered on the person and teaching of Jesus, where our children are nurtured within a warm, loving environment to allow their potential to flourish. Children are helped to develop an awareness of their rights and responsibilities and consequences for their actions.
Here at St Cuthbert's we live out our mission statement
'In God's family, we love, we grow, we learn' in all our actions and words.
