Thank you for your interest in Our Lady of Good Aid Cathedral Primary School.
Cathedral Primary has maintained an excellent reputation throughout its long history, supporting the development of successful learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors for over twelve decades.
Cathedral Primary is wholeheartedly committed to working in partnership with pupils, parents, carers, the parish and the wider community to ensure we provide the highest quality of education across all curricular areas, with the needs of the whole child – spiritual, emotional, social, physical and academic – being recognised, nurtured and developed. To this end, we endeavour to build a nurturing, stimulating learning community in which every child and adult feels loved and has the opportunity to reach their full God-given potential.
Our pupils are supported in their learning by a dedicated team of highly qualified and caring staff. There’s a diverse array of knowledge and expertise amongst the Cathedral team (as well as amongst our wider school community) and this allows us to offer a wide range of high quality learning experiences for our children, both within and out with the school day. Our desire is for every child to leave Cathedral Primary having matured into a happy, responsible and rounded individual with the skills and capacity to make a positive, lifelong contribution to society.
Of course, we cannot achieve this alone. To enable every child to maximise their potential, it is vitally important that – together – we develop a close, positive partnership between home and school. Cathedral Primary endeavours to keep parents and carers fully informed of developments, assist them in supporting their child’s learning at home and deal promptly with any questions or concerns they may have. We greatly value the feedback of parents and carers (and, indeed, all of our stakeholders) and actively seek their views and suggestions on a regular basis to help us on our improvement journey.
I hope you find the information contained in our website helpful and that it will provide a useful introduction to the learning opportunities and academic challenge we offer our pupils. Above all, however, I hope it will begin to convey the love, nurture and distinct Catholic ethos our children benefit from as valued members of the Cathedral Primary family.
Should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact the school office; we’ll be happy to help in whatever way we can.
On behalf of our whole school community, a very warm welcome to Our Lady of Good Aid Cathedral Primary School!
