Letter from the Headteacher
Dear Parents and Carers,
It is with great pride I welcome you to St Martha’s Catholic Primary School.
St Martha’s School is a very special place, where all staff work hard to encourage children to enjoy learning, achieve their potential, behave well and support each other to be the best they can be. We aim to help children to grow into confident, talented and articulate young people. We are an exciting and vibrant school where children enjoy learning and make good progress. At St Martha’s, we seek to meet the needs of each individual child. We celebrate diversity and teach children to recognise and respect people's individual differences as well as similarities. St Martha’s recognises the significant role of parents and carers in helping their children progress and greatly values the contributions they make to the life of our school. We are a community that treasures all that enter, whether they be pupil, parent, staff or simply a friend.
Our Catholic schools are an essential part of the mission of the Church. We are called to proclaim and affirm that we are all created in the image of God. The work of our Catholic school is to call forth each person's unique God given gifts in the love and service of both God and others. We grow strongest in faith when we learn of what Jesus taught us, by His Word and His action, in His ministry. We are His disciples and at St Martha’s, we learn about Him everyday. We celebrate our faith in liturgy and in prayer. We reinforce our faith by challenging and encouraging each child to discover their gifts and talents, and are always looking for ways to draw our children closer to the Lord.
We want nothing less than the absolute best for our community and we look forward to welcoming every new child and family as they start their school career with us.
Acting Head Teacher
