Headteacher’s Welcome


Welcome to our school.

It has been a year now since I took on the Federation Headship across St Bede’s and St Bernadette Catholic schools. A lot has changed in that time in our world and in education and since coming back in September post Lockdown, we have had to face a new way of teaching and learning and new challenges.

We are so happy to have all our wonderful children back after a long six months and now face the enormous task of supporting them to catch up on their missed learning.

We have a hugely committed staff team across the Federation and we are all extremely excited about our journey ahead., working in partnership with our Parents and Carers and outside agencies.

Through our Recovery Curriculum, 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.
