to Holy Cross Catholic Primary School
Holy Cross is a one form entry Catholic Primary School offering 30 Reception class places each September intake. Our Nursery, which is teacher led, offers fully funded morning places of 15 hours per week.
We offer a Breakfast Club from 8am every morning during term time. The charge is £2 per day per child, or £3 for two or more children.
We also offer after school childcare through our Late Mates Club which is run by school staff. This provides extended care for pupils up to 5:30 p.m. each evening during term time.
Holy Cross is a great school – so say our pupils, staff and parents in surveys! Staff consider it a privilege to work alongside such enthusiastic hard working pupils and together as a community we love to celebrate our achievements.
Our curriculum extends beyond the academic and we constantly seek to provide exciting experiences for our pupils to enhance their education and better enable them to contribute positively to society. Our pupils have a very clear understanding of British Values (see Vision and Values tab) and this is evidenced in their understanding of a fair and equitable society where differences are acknowledged and respected. Our Mission Statement ‘We Care, We Share, We Value’ can be evidenced in relationships across the school and in the warm welcome we extend to visitors and pupils new to this school and country.
We hope that you find this website of use and that it gives you an insight into our inclusive, caring and welcoming school.
If you would like more information about our school, or indeed would like the opportunity to look around the school and meet our staff and pupils, please contact the school office to make an appointment.

Rainbows Bereavement Support is a well-respected national charity. It has a proven, positive and direct impact on the lives of children and young people. This programme supports our children's emotional well being and has so far affected numerous children across Foundation stage, Key stage 1 and Key stage 2.
Our support staff Miss Gardner, Miss Shaw, Mrs Brown and Mrs Bowen are running these sessions and are a familiar face to the children already.
Should you think this programme could support your child(ren) please contact Miss McGlynn to discuss. When a place available we will be happy to refer you onto the programme.
