Pray Hard, Work Hard, Play Hard
The children, staff and governors would like to welcome you to our school. Holy Family is a Catholic Primary School with a strong Christian ethos. As stated in our school mission statement:
"We recognise that each child welcomed into our school family from whatever faith, culture or no faith at all, is highly valued and most appreciated, in our all inclusive community."
Please do visit our school so that you can see at first hand how happy and well behaved our children are, our high academic standards and our strong ethos where all children are able to achieve their full potential.

Year 6 DARE Graduation - Friday 12th December
Well done to all Year 6 children who graduated from the DARE programme on Friday. Their 'I'm a Celebrity' themed assembly was fantastic! DARE helps prepare the children for making difficult choices when they are older. At Holy Family we try to equip them with all the knowledge and skills they need to become confident individuals. Thank you also to Mr Warden, their DARE teacher, Mrs Brennan and Mrs Thomson.

NATIONAL SPACE WEEK
- October 6th - 10th
Children at Holy Family have had a fantastic week learning all about Science and Space. We've had experts in to teach the children about the solar system and about the life of astronauts! They even experienced life in space through the Wonderdome! We completed the week with a dress up day and we've all been amazing at how incredible all children look. Mums and dads have clearly worked hard, thank you!
