A very warm welcome to St. Catherine of Siena Catholic Primary School. We are a thriving one form entry Catholic school in inner city Birmingham. My name is Liam Fadden and I have been privileged to be Headteacher of this successful, vibrant and inclusive Catholic school since 2000.
As a parent of three children, I understand the importance of selecting a school which has high expectations and which nurtures the ‘whole child’, encouraging them to grow spiritually, academically and socially. At St. Catherine’s we all strive to live out our Mission Statement: To live, learn and grow in God’s Love. As a school community we work together to ensure that all children in our school have the opportunity and support to achieve their full potential. We are proud of the strong partnership we have with our parents / carers and the positive impact this has on helping our children ‘to live, learn and grow in God’s love.’
We have a strong partnership with the Parish of St. Catherine’s. Our children lead a mass in church or school most weeks. Our children are well supported by families and the priests of the parish throughout their faith journey, including Sacramental preparation.
We work collaboratively with several Catholic Primary schools in Birmingham and this partnership working is going from strength to strength; benefiting both staff and pupils.
In the years ahead we want to work together to guide our children throughout their educational and spiritual journey, helping them to be successful life - long learners and positive role models, who can contribute to society in the future. We want our children to have a strong sense of the need for social justice in our world and to ensure that we treat one another as equals.
We look forward to welcoming you to our successful, unique & friendly school.
