Head Teacher Welcome...
As Headteacher of St. Bernard’s Catholic Primary School it is a real privilege to welcome you to our school website.
St. Bernard’s is truly a special place where we celebrate cultural diversity, children from different faiths and backgrounds come together to 'inspire each other to excellence in the light of Christ.' We are a community family with around 420 children on roll; we take enormous pride in knowing all of our children very well and are fully committed to ensuring that each child is offered the finest start to their education in a warm, caring and loving environment. The school opened in September 1967 and continues to go from strength to strength.
Every child is welcomed and valued as a unique member of God's family and values taught through the Gospels are central to what we do in St Bernard’s. We have extremely high expectations and all our staff are committed to providing stimulating, exciting learning environments in which our children thrive in.
We aim to provide a rich, diverse curriculum that develops our children morally, socially as well as academically. Children leave St. Bernard’s as aspirational, responsible young people ready to make positive contributions to the wider communities in which they live.
We are proud of the partnership that we have between home, school and parish to provide the very best education that we can for the children in our care. We have excellent relationships with our current parents and are keen to build on existing links to further benefit the education of the children in our family.
I speak for all of our staff when I say that it truly is an honour to serve the community of St. Bernard’s and look forward to working alongside you during the years of your child's primary education here. I would like to thank you in advance for all of your support, generosity and hard work that you bring to our family and hope you enjoy your visit to our website.
Mr. P Foley
