Holy Family Roman Catholic Primary School

Through Work, Through Worship, Through Witness

'Educating is an act of love.  It is like giving life.'  Pope Francis

New Intake 2021


 Welcome to the children and families who we hope will be joining Holy Family in September 2021.  We are looking forward to getting to know you all and being part of your learning and faith journey.   .

As a result of restrictions due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we are unable to hold meetings in school in the usual way or conduct tours for prospective parents and pupils.  However, we hope that this page will give you enough information about Holy Family and help you to make the choice of  Nursery or Reception setting that is right for your child.

We are a one form entry Catholic school.  We are a worshiping as well as a learning family and we come together each day to pray and to know God in our own lives.  We welcome children and families of all faiths and none but we share the love that Jesus has for each one of us through our care for one another.

Our school prospectus can be found here.  In it, you will find all the information you need about our school including details about the curriculum, times of the school day, school uniform, staff and school meals & Breakfast Club, among other things.


We have put a short presentation together to give you a flavour of our school in the absence of visits by prospective parents at the current time.  Please follow the link below:


 Thank you to the parents who were able to attend the Intake Meeting on 10th June.  For those unable to attend, the powerpoint presentation, including useful links for parents, can be found here.
