Welcome to St Bede’s Catholic Infant and Nursery School

I feel extremely privileged to have the opportunity to continue as Head at St Bede’s Catholic Infant school and take on the leadership of St Bernadette Catholic Junior school and continue to build upon the successes of both our federated schools.

We have a hugely committed staff team across the federation and the most wonderful children and we are all extremely excited about our journey ahead.

We aim to create a warm and nurturing atmosphere, which enhances the highest expectations for all our children, whose needs are always paramount in the life and decision making within our schools. We strongly believe in providing the children with exciting, creative and meaningful learning experiences, which build their enthusiasm for learning and help them to grow and develop positively in a variety of ways, ready for the challenges they will face going up from the Infants to the Juniors  and then onto Secondary schools.

Our two schools are very strongly centred around our Catholic faith and the school community and ethos thrives on mutual respect and values positive relationships both within school and with our Parents and Carers. The School – Parent partnership is of paramount importance and we look forward to working very closely with you all in order to ensure that your children are happy, learning and reach their full potential in all areas.
