`Love One Another As I Have Loved You`

John 15:12

Friday 7th July.



On the morning of Tuesday 4th July children from Nursery- Year 6 competed in a special sport’s activity day designed to raise money for the British Heart Foundation. It was a wonderful occasion and thoroughly enjoyed by all who took part. We are presently awaiting the return of all sponsorship money and once completed we will confirm how much has been raised. Thank you to Miss. Gosling and all the staff for organising such a wonderful event.

In the afternoon the school held what was originally only planned as a low key fund raising event for sport. However, thanks to all of the parents and community for making it such a memorable occasion. Thanks to your kindness and generosity the school raised £328 which will be used to support our school’s sports events. Thank you to June Kelly, MBE for organising such a special event. Thanks to her staff from Abraham Warriors who gave up their time and again thanks to all the staff at the school.


A big thank you to McDonalds for funding our new sport’s kit and presented it to the children on Tuesday afternoon. It was great to meet with the managers and staff and they are doing a wonderful job in supporting our school.


On Thursday 5th July the most amazing science day took place at school and the Key Stage 2 Playground was full of pupils, staff, visitors and parents attempting challenging science investigations. Mrs. Lee proved to have the fastest reflexes in the school, catching a falling ruler,(one centimetre); Abigail in Year 4 had the most powerful voice; Darryl and Geraldine jumped almost seven feet, (197cm) from a standing start and everywhere you looked all were immersed in science experiments. I would to thank Salford University for attending the science day. Last but not least a big thank you to Mr. Hanley-Woods for organising the event and thanks to all the staff for their support.



From the start of the new school year we will be offering a dedicated after school club. It will be housed in the outside class room and cater for initially 20 pupils. It will operate from home time to 4.15pm. All places will need to be booked in advance and there will be a charge of £2-£2.50 per child. Pupils will be provided with a drink and a light snack. The after school club will run Monday to Friday. For more information please contact the school. It will be known as the ‘Sunshine Club.’


Parents, keep the 20th July free to attend Mass in School during the morning with the children and the Year 6 leavers’ assembly in the afternoon. There will be a celebration of all the people who left our school in April for parents and children to say their final good bye. We have confirmation that Mr. Travis plans to come along and the children have special memories to share with staff. School will be open from 2-6pm and if you would like to bring a dish to share and join in get a ticket from the school office.


Please can you ensure that your child/children are attending school in the correct uniform. Black, sensible school shoes are to be worn and not trainers. We do understand that it is close to the end of year and it is best to purchase new black shoes as close to September as possible. However, pupils do need to adhere to the school policy and agreeing to wearing the correct school uniform is part of the Home School Agreement, signed by parents.


Unauthorised absences greatly affect children’s education and the school cannot grant permission for pupils to be off school either for a holiday, one day, or half a day during term time. The school have strict guidelines to adhere to from the council and DFE. Repeated unauthorised absences will force the school to have to issue fines and arriving for school after registers have closed is classed as an unauthorised absence.


From September we will no longer be having non uniform days on the first Friday of each month. We will have lots of new and exciting activities coming in the new year including a return to class trips, attendance awards, and an increased number of sporting and performing arts opportunities.


Next week we will be publishing the new route for the Walking Bus.


A welcome from our Head Teacher.


As Acting Head teacher at St. Chads RC Primary School I am delighted to be working with highly motivated and enthusiastic teachers and a committed Governing Body.  St. Chad’s is supported by a dedicated Governing Body led by our Chair of Governors, Dr. Paul Leigh-Baker.

A Proud Catholic School. We seek to live out the values of Jesus Christ and promote these values by our words and deeds recognizing that every child is unique and is created in the image of God.  Jesus told us to ‘Love one another as I have loved you’ and this reminds us every day to go the extra mile for the children within our care. We have a strong partnership with our parents and carers’, the parish and the Oratory of St. Chads.

St. Chad’s is a warm, friendly happy school where everyone treats each other with the utmost respect. We offer our children the opportunity to develop a closer relationship with God, as they grow in faith as unique young people.

Our dedicated team of teaching and support staff set high expectations of themselves and of the children .They work hard to provide a challenging curriculum that engages all pupils, stimulating their interests and joy of learning.  Children are constantly aware of the importance of their parents and teachers working together. It gives them the security and confidence which they need if they are to develop good attitudes to learning, and to become part of the faith community.

The wonderful children at St. Chads positively embrace their learning and are continually striving to surpass their best. They have boundless energy and enthusiasm and an eagerness to learn new things and make progress.

The primary years are very special ones and we assure you of our very best efforts to make our children’s years at St Chads School as happy, productive and memorable.


We encourage you to come and visit our school, you will receive a warm welcome from all.
