Holy Family Catholic Primary School

Head of School's Welcome


Welcome to Holy Family Catholic Primary School. I am the Interim Head of School, Mrs Caroline Carter.

I have been part of the Holy Family team since 2007 and feel very privileged to work alongside the staff, pupils and parents of such a wonderful school.

Every member of staff knows and cares for every child at Holy Family School.  This compassionate ethos is promoted at all times and is recognised as a strength of Holy Family by parents and inspectors alike.

Within that caring ethos, we also seek to maximise every child’s potential, by working together with parents.  We strive to ensure there is challenge in every lesson to stretch the minds of all students.  Across the curriculum, we will develop creativity, curiosity, initiative, independence and most importantly your child’s confidence and self-belief.  You will have numerous opportunities to participate in this by supporting your child with learning projects at home and in school.

At Holy Family we aim to support our pupils in becoming happy, self-assured, creative, skilled, polite, respectful, caring human beings.  The staff are excellent role models in how to communicate, care for and value others.  In learning to live our Mission Statement the children understand how to extend this caring for themselves and each other, to the local parish and wider world.  They also learn to respect the environment by participating in Forest School sessions and supporting our work as an eco-school.

We endeavour to enrich the children’s learning through creative planning of unique experiences, educational trips, visitors to schools, imaginative programmes of learning and themed weeks.

The school website offers more information about the school and details about the curriculum for each class.  However, at Holy Family we are always available for questions, so if there is anything that you need to know just pop into the office, speak to a member of staff on the playground or send an email.

I look forward to welcoming you into the Holy Family Primary School  community.

Caroline Carter
