St Gregory & St Patrick's Catholic Infant School

About Us


Our bodies have many parts, but the many parts make up only one body when they are put together.  So it is with the "Body" of Christ.  Each of us is a part of the one body of Christ.  Some of us are Jews, some are Gentiles, some are slaves and some of us are free.  But the Holy Spirit has fitted us all together into one body.  We have been baptised into Christ's body by the one Spirit, and have all been given that same Holy Spirit. Corinthians 12:12-13


St Gregory and St Patrick's Catholic Community School strives to be a Gospel inspired, happy, family community that enables all children and staff to achieve their full potential, (spritually, emotionally, physically and intellectually), as valued members of society.  The aims and practices of this school will be rooted in the Gospel view of the worth and value of each individual person.  This school will promote and encourage children to develop their relationship with God, society, the environment and the world.  This school will provide a challenging, learning school where children are encouraged to do their best and prepare for their future.  This school will always include pupils, staff, parents, governors and parish, in the continuous development and improvement of our school.  Pupils will be taught: to be courteous, caring and disciplined to have a positive view of themselves.

'My son feels cared for, protected and loved, which goes a long way in helping his confidence to learn.' This sentiment, expressed by one parent and echoed overwhelmingly by other parents is the essence of what makes St Gregory's and St Patrick's a good school with some outstanding features.  Pupils reach high standards and achieve well.  Their personal development is outstanding. This is because of good teaching,  an excellent curriculum and high levels of care and support.  Pupils enjoy coming to school, feel safe and behave very well. They have an excellent awareness of the importance of keeping fit and eating healthily through the school's outstanding range of activities and opportunities.  The high quality relationships between staff, pupils, parents and governors are the hallmark of the school and reflect the strong Christian ethos that prevails.  This is a bright, vibrant school at the heart of the community that extends a warm welcome to everyone who walks through the door.  There are excellent partnerships with other schools and agencies.  High quality displays on walls and in classrooms are engaging.  Pupils' achievements are celebrated with care and pride.
