St Catherine's Catholic Primary School

Catholic Life at St Catherine's Primary

We are a Catholic School. 

We welcome families of all faiths to join us.


Our Mission Statement is a clear reflection of our intentions as a school:


St. Catherine's mission is to educate children

in the virtues of Faith, Hope and Charity.

With Christ as our Teacher, we grow in Faith as

enthusiastic learners in a safe and supportive family.


We are privileged to share with our pupils, the awe and wonder they experience as they learn through the scriptures and apply the lessons to their own lives; safe in the knowledge that God is a kind and loving Father. 


Our Parish Priest, Fr John Winstanley, visits us every week in school and regularly shares Mass and Services with our classes.

Prayers we share in school

First Holy Communion: 20.5.23 - We were so pleased that fifteen children made their First Holy Communion this year.

Key Stage One children enjoyed their annual May Procession. We walked along to the church garden to present Mary's statue with beautiful flowers. The children said the Hail Mary prayer and sang a hymn. We were so glad that the sun was shining!

Parish and School Crib Blessing 2022

First Holy Communion Day - Saturday 21st May 2022

Advent 2021


Fr. John had a beautiful outdoor crib placed in the Church Garden and our school was invited to join the Parish for a Blessing.

It was a bitterly cold afternoon, but the children sang Love Shone Down beautifully and read Bidding Prayers.

We are very excited for home time because the crib will be all lit up!

Holy Week 2021


We held a beautiful service in the Church gardens with Fr John. The sun shone down on us and we really enjoyed listening to the readings and singing our songs as we shared the stories of Holy Week.

Fr. John told us about the Re-dedication of England to Mary, our Mother in Heaven

Thank you to Fr. John for leading our assembly today in Church. Fr. John had arranged for the statue, Our Lady of Walsingham, from St. Edmund's Parish in Carlisle, to be brought to St. Catherine's Church. Fr. John told us about the Re-Dedication of England to Mary on 29th March 2020. We held a short prayer service and thought carefully about what we would like to ask Our Lady to help us with.
