On behalf of the Governors and Staff I would like to extend a warm welcome to you and your child. I hope that you will find the information in this website useful and that it will give you some idea of the life and work of the school, as well as our sense of aims and values.
Your child is very special. We hope we can work in partnership to create a bond of trust and support between home and school for your child.
This is a small school in which we hope to foster a real family atmosphere and a caring Christian Community, hard working and courteous. Each child is encouraged to feel confident of his or her own worth and ability. We believe that a school is made up of people and not buildings and in the light of this we hope everyone in our school community enjoys being a member of it, and feels a personal commitment to is because it is 'ours'.
Priory School is a Roman Catholic (Voluntary Aided) Primary School for children aged 4 to 11 and is closely linked with the Parish and Diocese. Whilst the majority of children in our school are Catholic, where space is available we also admit children whose parents wish their children to receive a Catholic education. All children are treated equally within the school.
The Catholic Faith is central to the day to day life of our school and to all aspects of the curriculum, it is not an added extra. We place importance upon prayer and gospel values as well as R.E. lessons, acts of worship and assemblies.
Schools are changing all the time, of course, as the children and adults in them change. This brochure is intended to give information about the school at present. It is accurate at the time of going to press, but some things may alter during the year and it should not be assumed that there will be no variation before the start of or during the school year.
If you would like to know more about Priory, then you are welcome to come and look around the school and to talk to me.
Mrs S Barreto
