St Monica’s Catholic Primary School

 

 

Sharing the “Good News” along the path to achievement ………..

St. Monica’s Catholic Primary School is a voluntary aided co-educational school, offering a primary education to children aged 4 to 11 years. It serves the parish of St Monica’s and takes children generally from the South Warrington areas of Appleton, Stockton Heath and Walton. A small minority of children come from adjacent areas.

 

Mission Statement

 

As a Catholic School, St Monica’s Staff and Governors are committed to:

 

  • assist in the Church’s mission of making Christ known to all people. That is to place Christ and the teaching of the Catholic Church at the centre of the lives of the children and the community we serve in order that they can have true freedom and fullness of life.

 

  • assist parents, who are the primary educators of their children, in the education and religious formation of their children.

 

  • be at the service of the Parish of St Monica’s and foster communion within the parish

 

  • contribute to the creation of a society that is highly educated, skilled and cultured for the common good of that society

We are an inclusive school which offers a broad and balanced curriculum, a wide range of extra curricular opportunities for children of all ages and we enjoy very good home, school and parish links. Standards of attainment and achievement are consistently and significantly higher than the national averages, for schools similar in makeup and context to ours. Most recent national data shows that outcomes for all children at our school are outstanding.

If you are a parent looking for a school place, or if you are parishioner and would like to get involved in school life e.g. in the prayer life of the school or sacramental preparation, please call school to arrange an appointment with me.
