As Head teacher of English Martyrs Catholic Primary School, I would like to welcome you to our school website.
I am extremely proud of the education that we offer here at English Martyrs and feel privileged to be part of a caring, committed team of practitioners who are dedicated to the children in our care.
Our Catholic ethos means that we are faithful to Gospel values and strive to live by the teachings of Jesus Christ. We aim to ensure that our children not only succeed academically, but also grow spiritually and morally, developing into fully rounded individuals. Collective worship, Mass and liturgy all play an important part in the life of the school, as well as an RE curriculum designed to enable pupils to have a firm understanding of Christian beliefs and teachings (as well as an insight into the beliefs of other faiths).
We endeavour to ensure that our pupils achieve their academic potential, by using a wide range of teaching styles and initiatives. We are highly committed to helping every child to make good progress from the moment they join our school in the Foundation Stage, until the time they leave us for secondary school in Year 6.
I hope that you enjoy browsing our website and find it informative. Please take the time to read our newsletters which will give you a further flavour for the school and are updated weekly. Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you have any further questions or would like to arrange a visit; I would be delighted to meet you!
Mr J Carroll
