School Mission Statement  


2020 Cohort at Holy Family Catholic Primary


Welcome to Holy Family Catholic Primary, we are delighted that you and your child are joining us this coming September.  On behalf of the Staff, Governors, children and parents, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you and your family to our school community.


Our usual induction plans cannot be followed at the moment so we have endeavoured to put together all the information that we would usually have talked you through below.  We have also added photographs which we hope will give you a flavour of Holy Family.  Once September comes we will look forward to your son/daughter spending their first time with us, starting off very gently and building up to fulltime by the end September.
