You are the light of the world.  In the same way, ‘Let your Light Shine’ before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your father who is in heaven.

Welcome to St Clare’s Catholic Primary and Nursery School

     It is a privilege to be the headteacher at such a wonderful school, full of happy, well-behaved children, who are a joy to teach. 

     It is my aim that our pupils, who are at the heart of every decision we make, are happy, confident and are given opportunities to achieve both now and in the future.  Our highly skilled, enthusiastic and all-round amazing staff are key to the school and in delivering this crucial aim for all our pupils. We have developed a learning community where children respect each other and take responsibility for their own behaviour and progress, showing understanding and modelling for each other the values that are essential to developing a harmonious and cohesive learning community. This begins with our children in the Early Years and continues throughout our school, our children are taught and encouraged to make positive behaviour and learning choices that enable them to flourish.

     We are proud to be a Catholic School reflecting Christian values in the way we interact with each other and within the community and all the while celebrating our diverse community and other faiths. Each person’s faith is of equal importance and at St Clare’s we always ensure that all our families feel welcome.

    As a school, we are always looking for new ways to improve and grow. We all work together with a common goal, to ensure that our children are happy and successful in their primary years. I hope our website gives you as much information as possible about our school, the staff, the governors and the activities that our pupils enjoy throughout our curriculum.
