Welcome to St Wilfrid’s Catholic Primary School
I am very proud of this school and of its children, teachers, parents and governors. We all work very hard to create a caring Christian community.
At St Wilfrid’s Catholic Primary School we achieve very good academic results. We provide a broad and rich curriculum within which Art, PE and Music flourish and are important to us. Within our school every child is valued and nurtured to achieve their potential. - Jill Allen (Headteacher)

St Wilfrid's Mission Statement
A Vision for St Wilfrid’s Catholic Primary School
Produced by children, staff and governors
Learning to Love, Loving to Learn
Our Catholic School is a safe and happy place where young people can walk in the footsteps of Jesus, a journey based on Gospel values:
In love for one another, and for life and living
In knowledge and wisdom of who they are and who they can be
In faith, supported by our home, school, parish community
In respect for our world and all living things
In dignity and self-worth of ourselves and all God’s people
A place where, trusting others, enriched by experience, challenged by opportunity and supported by a faith community, they can learn together in an atmosphere of fairness, equality and friendship.
A place where individual difficulties are understood and where potential is recognised and realised.
A place where young people can begin to develop a sense of wonder about themselves and the world they live in, so that as they leave us they are confident, equipped and excited to embrace their future.
Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.”
At St Wilfrid’s Catholic Primary School, we follow the GOLDEN RULES to help us get closer to Jesus.

Jesus said, “Learn from me, I am gentle and humble of heart.”
Do be kind, don’t hurt people’s feelings
Jesus was kind to all, especially the weak, the sick and the lonely
Do be honest, don’t cover up the truth
Jesus said, “The truth will set you free.”
Do look after property, don’t waste or damage things
God created our world and we must look after it
Do listen to people, don’t interrupt
God said, “This is my beloved son, listen to Him.”
Do treat others with the respect you expect for yourself
