Welcome to St. Ethelbert’s Catholic Primary School. I am very pleased to have this opportunity to welcome you to the school website and the Christian values under which our school flourishes.
The primary school journey is a very important step in the life of any child and their family. At St. Ethelbert’s we will make your child’s time here – happy, rewarding and creative.
As parents you naturally want the very best for your child and we take that responsibility seriously. We have the highest expectations of all our children and staff. We are naturally extremely proud of the children’s achievements, effort, attitudes and the happy atmosphere that they nurture and create. Everyone at St. Ethelbert’s is special and is valued for the contribution that they make to the life of the school as well as the work that they do as individuals.
We have a very caring and committed staff who are always available to answer questions and discuss matters as they arise.
Above all, we believe that for education to be successful there needs to be a real partnership and mutual support between parents and school and we count on your co-operation in achieving this aim.
Enjoy browsing through this website and looking at our wonderful children!
