Welcome to English Martyrs' RC Primary School!

Welcome to English Martyrs' Roman Catholic Primary School. Our school is known for its friendly, caring environment in which children can thrive. As a Roman Catholic school we create an atmosphere in which children can grow into the fullness of their faith. We develop their understanding of, and respect for, people of all faiths and cultures. We value parents as children’s first teachers.  We aim to educate our pupils in every way so that they are friendly, spiritual and caring individuals who enjoy learning and achieve their potential in all areas. We provide a welcoming, safe environment in which children learn to speak and behave properly and to care for and comfort others.

The Catholic Bishops' Conference of England and Wales have declared 2020 to be a year of special focus on the Bible.
