Welcome to St Albert the Great Catholic Primary School


St. Albert the Great Catholic Primary School is a place where the spirit of Christ lives.  We are a loving, learning community committed to putting our Gospel Values and ethos at the heart of all we do; making everyone feel valued and part of our school family.  We are very proud of our Catholic nature and how this is reflected in the excellent attitude our children have towards their learning. Our Catholic ethos is enhanced by the close links we have developed with the parish of Our Lady, Queen of all Creation Church.

Our school is situated in a beautiful new building, surrounded by extensive grounds that include a Multi Use Games Area (MUGA), a woodland area and pond called ‘The Spinney’ with provision for Forest School.   At St Albert’s we are passionate about supporting our children to become effective, inquisitive life-long learners.  We achieve this through the implementation of our Building Learning Powers, our core Gospel themes and provision for Forest School.   Our curriculum is designed to recognise children’s prior learning, provide first-hand learning experiences, allow the children to develop interpersonal skills, build resilience through learning to fail well and become creative, independent, critical thinkers.  Both the staff and children are very proud of our fully inclusive school and we work hard to celebrate children’s achievements.  We are very fortunate that we have supportive parents and governors and we are keen to develop these partnerships further.

St Albert the Great Catholic Primary School adopts a number of strategies and activities in raising the attainment and progression of disadvantaged children.  These include 1:1 tuition, peer to peer support, precision intervention groups, and termly provision mapping for all children at risk of not making expected progress.

This web site has been designed to give you a feel for our school. It is not a substitute for personal contact and visits are always welcome. Our teachers know that close relationships with parents help us to reach a better understanding of the children. You can contact me by sending me an email to
