As Headteacher of St Bede’s Catholic Primary School, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our website where you will be able to find a wide range of information about our school. St Bede’s is a school with a strong Catholic ethos. This permeates all areas of school life and is at the heart of our philosophy on education.
Our whole curriculum is rooted in a religious understanding of life, with Gospel values underpinning our efforts to provide a quality education for all.
As a one-form entry primary school, we are able to fully recognise every child’s individual requirements, aspirations and ambitions.
Our Vision and Values
At St Bede’s Catholic Primary School, the children are taught that our vision is:
“To be happy, love one another and always do our best.”
In all that we do, our objective is to create a happy and secure environment where the children will enjoy coming to school in the knowledge that they are unique and valued as members of God’s family. We aim to create aspirational targets for our children, increasing their potential for achievement in life whilst retaining their Christian values and duty to care for all people in God’s world.
We have a deeply held set of Core Values which are central to our school life.
Our vision is for St Bede’s to be a place where the children can learn, develop and grow in a caring, nurturing environment, and where they can become successful, motivated learners and responsible citizens who can make a positive contribution to society and show respect towards others.
We want our children to develop a love of learning, fostered through teaching which is responsive to individual needs and within a framework of an engaging, relevant and challenging curriculum.
At the end of Year 6 when the children leave St Bede’s, we believe they will have developed the core skills, knowledge and understanding to prepare them for the next stage on their learning journey, as well as for life beyond school.
I feel extremely proud and honoured to be the Headteacher of this wonderful school and I hope you will find our website both useful and informative.
