Head Teacher Appointment:


On Monday 16th October the interviews for the post of substantive/permanent Head Teacher at our special school took place at St. Chad’s Roman Catholic Church. The Governors’ of St. Chad’s Roman Catholic Primary are delighted to announce the appointment of Mrs. M E Foster as the permanent Head.

Mrs. Foster is a highly experienced, gifted, talented and committed educator. Since January 2017 she has steered the school successfully through very challenging times. She is delighted to have been chosen to lead this special Catholic School. We wish her continued happiness in her role.



The Music Club is now being offered to all Key Stage 2 pupils. If you are interested then please contact the office before Thursday as we only have limited places left. It is a wonderful opportunity to showcase musical talents.



Well done to our footballers who had a magnificent 10-1 victory. We may not always win, but when we do it is nice and should be celebrated. However, the real achievement is always giving our best and the children certainly did that. Thank you to June for all her support.



Well done to all our pupils on completing an excellent first half term. The staff and governors would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy, safe and refreshing break. It is time to recharge batteries in readiness for the run up to Christmas.



Chad would like to express his gratitude to all the wonderful pupils in Nursery, Reception and Year 1. They all made such a fuss of him. He has decided to stay at school longer but at present, due to all the care and fuss that he has received he is feeling rather tired. Mr. Pudik and Miss. Gosling have found him a beautiful place in the school to rest and unwind. Can you guess where or better can you find him?


HIGH VIS VESTS,(Should have gone to Specsavers).


On Tuesday 17th October 250 High Visibility Vests were delivered to school free of charge from Specsavers. We would like to thank Specsavers for their kind donation. Now, thanks to Specsavers not only can we all see in the dark, but can also be seen in the dark.

A welcome from our Head Teacher.


As Acting Head teacher at St. Chads RC Primary School I am delighted to be working with highly motivated and enthusiastic teachers and a committed Governing Body.  St. Chad’s is supported by a dedicated Governing Body led by our Chair of Governors, Dr. Paul Leigh-Baker.

A Proud Catholic School. We seek to live out the values of Jesus Christ and promote these values by our words and deeds recognizing that every child is unique and is created in the image of God.  Jesus told us to ‘Love one another as I have loved you’ and this reminds us every day to go the extra mile for the children within our care. We have a strong partnership with our parents and carers’, the parish and the Oratory of St. Chads.

St. Chad’s is a warm, friendly happy school where everyone treats each other with the utmost respect. We offer our children the opportunity to develop a closer relationship with God, as they grow in faith as unique young people.

Our dedicated team of teaching and support staff set high expectations of themselves and of the children .They work hard to provide a challenging curriculum that engages all pupils, stimulating their interests and joy of learning.  Children are constantly aware of the importance of their parents and teachers working together. It gives them the security and confidence which they need if they are to develop good attitudes to learning, and to become part of the faith community.

The wonderful children at St. Chads positively embrace their learning and are continually striving to surpass their best. They have boundless energy and enthusiasm and an eagerness to learn new things and make progress.

The primary years are very special ones and we assure you of our very best efforts to make our children’s years at St Chads School as happy, productive and memorable.


We encourage you to come and visit our school, you will receive a warm welcome from all.


M. E. Foster
