Head Teacher Welcome
Hello and welcome to our St. Bernard's Catholic Primary School website. Please spend time exploring the different sections of our website to give you an idea of what our school is all about.
I have been Head Teacher at St. Bernard's for over 10 years now and it has been an absolute privilege to serve the local and wider community of this area. As our website clearly states, 'St. Bernard's is about Catholic education in the heart of Birmingham' and so I am proud to be a member of staff in this wonderful school.
I know my staff work hard striving to provide the best possible education for the children in our care. We like to think we have a very 'open door' approach at St. Bernard's school, we hold monthly drop-in surgeries for classes so you discuss issues related to your child and we are only a phone-call away if you need to speak to us.
Our aim is to provide a happy, safe and enriching experience for your child and we always promote working in partnership with you to achieve this aim. If your child is to reach their true potential on their educational journey, it must be a journey of school and home working closely together in partnership.
Finally, I would very much like you to read through our very important safeguarding documentation that is on this website. The documentation will give you an insight to the way our school operates and how we strive to care for the personal development and well-being of all the children at St. Bernard's Catholic Primary School.
I look forward to meeting you soon.
Mr Patrick O'Leary - Head Teacher
