Welcome to St. Catherine of Siena Catholic Primary School
On behalf of the children, staff and governors, I am delighted to welcome you to our school website. We hope that it will give you an idea of what makes St Catherine's the special, spiritual and enriching environment which we are all proud to be part of.
St Catherine's is a one form entry Catholic primary school serving the parish of St Catherine of Siena, located in central Birmingham.
We have high standards for academic achievement with progress and attainment consistently above the national average. However, our school is about so much more than just results. Everything we do is underpinned by our Catholic faith and we work in partnership with the Church, our Parents and local schools to provide opportunities to develop and grow the spirituality of our children. We believe that each and every person is created uniquely and yet equally in the eyes of God. Each with their own unique set of God-given gifts and talents. Our aim is to see that these gifts and talents are nurtured and realised during the children's time at St Catherine’s.
Our mission statement, 'We live, learn and grow in God’s love.’ is at the heart of our Catholic ethos which permeates all areas of school life.
At St Catherine's we pride ourselves on working together to create a community based on strong relationships and a shared Christian faith. With this in mind, we ensure that all children are welcomed and nurtured within a supportive partnership between school, home and parish. We are supported by our parish priests: Fr Mario and Fr Babu, and our dedicated Governing Body.
We know that children learn best when they feel happy, secure and well cared for, therefore our first priority is the provision of strong pastoral care and a focus on the mental, spiritual and physical wellbeing of all our children. We aim to develop in our children a passion and love for life-long learning by providing an enriched, broad and balanced curriculum that delivers high quality, inclusive education for all, so that each child become positive role-models who will reach their full potential.
As a result of our strong community links, shared ethos and values, pastoral care and curriculum offer, we are a happy, friendly, unique and successful school committed to providing an excellent and inspiring Catholic education for all our children.
