St Columba’s Catholic Primary School are delighted to be involved with this incentive.  Members of staff have been attending meetings with the alliance and have invited leaders in the community to train staff and give an assembly to the children, we feel this will help us best serve those in the community who might need our support.

Welcome to St Columba’s Catholic Primary School: From Mrs C O’Donnell our Headteacher

It is our ultimate aim at St Columba’s to educate the ‘Whole Child’ so that they are valued for their uniqueness, feel truly loved and know that God is there for them in their life.

 Our school is a welcoming community that strives to follow the values of the Gospel in all we do.

All children are different and bring their own gifts, talents and needs. It is our job at St Columba’s to recognise the special qualities each child brings and to support their growth.

Children, parents and parish who are part of the St Columba’s family contribute to the life of our school in so many ways. We appreciate all their support as it is by working together that we help our children to become the best they can be.

A People Place

If this is not a place where tears are understood,

Where do I go to cry?

If this is not a place where my spirits can take wing,

Where do I go to fly?

If this is not a place where my questions can be asked,

Where do I go to seek?

If this is not a place where my feelings can be heard,

Where do I go to speak?

If this is not a place where you’ll accept me as I am,

Where can I go to be?

If this is not a place where I can try to learn and grow,

Where can I be just me?

Saint Columba’s is an outstanding Catholic school, where the dedication and drive of all staff and governors leads to high standards, continuous improvement and excellent provision for all pupils.
