A warm welcome to all who visit our web site. We hope you will gain a good picture of our school and enjoy reading about all that goes on in our happy, thriving, school community.
St. Anne’s is a Voluntary Aided Roman Catholic primary school for children aged 3 to 11. The children are taught in eight single age group classes, including a nursery class for our youngest children. The school works under the trusteeship of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Salford, is governed by its own Governing Body, and maintained by Oldham Local Authority.
Within our school day, we lead the children in the understanding and practice of our Catholic Faith. We welcome children of other faiths, and include provision for their spiritual growth within the overall catholic ethos. The children play, learn and pray together happily and the diversity of our school community, within this catholic ethos, contributes to the children’s social, spiritual and cultural development.
Our school Mission Statement, ‘We Grow Together in God’s Love’ supports the whole school community in creating a caring community where everyone is valued and treated with respect and dignity.
‘Staff, governors, parents and pupils share a strong belief in the values of their school. Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is outstanding, as is their behaviour in and out of class.(Ofsted 2014)’
Within this caring ethos, we have high expectations of children’s academic achievement. Children are challenged and supported to do the best they can in all aspects of school life. Children make very good progress during their time at St. Anne’s, with children of all levels of ability achieving well in national tests at the end of key stages.
