`Love One Another As I Have Loved You`

John 15:12


The appalling attack at the Manchester Arena last night is currently being treated as a suspected terrorist incident. All our thoughts are with the families and friends of those who have lost loved ones or been injured or traumatised. The police, hospitals, Council and emergency services are doing all they can to support them. As a City we will remain strong and it is more important than ever that our communities continue to support each other.


Our school leadership team will continue to ensure the safety of our children and security of our school building, and will remain vigilant at all times.


We appreciate these terrible events will be distressing for your children and the school community. We will remain open as usual and we appreciate your support in keeping the day as calm and normal as possible for the children. We have access to Educational Psychology Services should anybody require this.


There is an increased number of police, including armed patrols out in communities following yesterday's incident. These are general patrols aimed at providing community reassurance and there is no need to be alarmed.


There is no intelligence relating to a threat to schools and GMP are not advising any schools to close.


As we receive further information from the City Council, we will update parents/carers via our website



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.
