St Elizabeth's Catholic Primary School

School Information 

Our School

At our school, we have approximately 230 children on roll. We have a 56 place EYFS which comprises of both Nursery and Reception aged children. The children in the Infant and Junior Departments are arranged in year groups, with two classes in the infants (Key Stage 1), and four classes in the Juniors (Key Stage 2).

 The school therefore is relatively small, and it has a strong parish and family links, which go back to its opening in 1965. These factors combined with the school's commitment to Gospel values, contribute towards an ethos which is characterised by spirituality, friendship, forgiveness and care.

The school building is single-storey and purpose built, with self contained classrooms clustering around a central hall which is used for assemblies, P.E, performing arts and extra curricular activities. Our library is a bright and inviting place with lots of books for all ages and stages. 

The school grounds are attractive and include: a playing field, tyre track, trim trail, Early Years playground and three hard surface playgrounds.  In the middle of our school building we also have a beautiful Peace Garden which our gardening club have worked really hard to develop into a colourful and welcoming place. 

We have also recently completed the development of our Early Years outdoor area and we believe it will provide our pupils with the best possible start to their education. The area includes: 

   - large sandpit with a construction/loose parts area

   - free flowing river surrounded by a rock pool

   - natural climbing frame with balance beams and gymnastics bars

    -mud kitchen serving delicious muddy treats

   - bike track with a roundabout

   - snuggly reading nest to share a story

   - story circle with enough seats for everyone!

  - games area with lots of space for throwing, catching and ring games

 Everyday your child will need a waterproof coat and a pair of wellies so we can explore outside whatever the weather!
