Family Maths Course Free to all Parents and Carers:

St. Chad’s School is extremely proud to be hosting the ‘FAMILY MATHS COURSE.’ The first session is on Wednesday 8th November 9am-12.00.

It will run for 6 weeks and it is a wonderful opportunity for parents and carers to polish up on their maths skills.

Sessions are every Wednesday up to and including the 13th December. Please contact the office for a form.



Chad has decided that for the time being the sofa on the stage is his new home and as it is located in the library he has read a book every day and then tends to fall asleep in the afternoon.

He is very impressed by the children reading in the library and maybe they could recommend new books for him.


All Saints Day Wednesday 1st November.

It was lovely to see the children walking to church for All Saints Day and a massive thank you to all of the parents, carers, parishioners and friends of the school for giving up their precious time to support the children.

We would like to say a big thank you to all the clergy of St. Chads for sharing such a special mass.

It was also an opportunity to wear our new Hi Vis Vests from Specsavers and all the helpers looked very smart.


Reward Trips:

Well done to all the pupils who have achieved 100% attendance since September 4th and have worn the correct uniform every day.

Early Years had a movie celebration and soon classes will be going on their trips.

If you didn’t achieve it for last half term please, don’t be disheartened as if you have excellent attendance and wear your correct uniform, (including PE kits) then you may be eligible for the January trip which might be a pantomime?


School Photographs

It is important your child wears full school uniform on Friday 10th November, as the school photographer is in school.

An individual photograph will be taken of every child. Also a photograph will be taken of any siblings who attend our school.



School is closed on Monday 27th November 2017 for a Teacher Training Day


Have a great weekend.


God Bless.


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.
