Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to St Anne’s Primary School website.

We are extremely proud of our school and I hope you find all the information you need in order to explore and discover the exciting things that happen here! We aim to create a positive atmosphere of trust, mutual respect and high expectations between pupils, staff, parents and other professionals. Every member of our staff is determined to provide a happy, safe and calm environment where children behave well and develop into confident, creative and independent learners. It is my privilege as Headteacher to welcome you and your child to St Anne’s and my goal is to ensure every child has a positive and rewarding start to their journey in education.

Reception Intake September 2021

We would like to extend a warm welcome to the children and families who will be joining us in September 2021. Due to the ongoing restrictions, we are unable to hold the “New Intake” meeting this year.  Whilst this is very disappointing, we would like to offer as much information to you as we can so that your child is ready for their September start!  Our school website should provide you with an understanding of our core values. You will also find information on the curriculum and the most recent Ofsted report.

We have also included a new page entitled ‘Reception September 2021,’ which can be found under the ‘Information’ and “Information for Parents” menu.  Here you will find a short presentation showing the Reception classroom and see the different areas where our children play and learn.  This section also includes the school prospectus.  Other class presentations from our ‘Virtual Open Session’ can be found in ‘Information’ and ‘Information for parents.’  We understand that this is not an ideal situation and you can be assured that as soon as restrictions are lifted we will endeavour to facilitate further meetings.

If you have any questions or enquiries, please contact the school office.  We look forward to working with you in the future.

Yours sincerely,

Kirsty Rimmer
