St Chad's Catholic Primary School

Headteacher's Welcome

On behalf of the pupils, staff and governors, I would like to warmly welcome you to St Chad’s Catholic Primary website.  I hope your visit is informative and it gives you an insight into the learning that takes place; not least the expectations and aspiration we have for all our pupils.  We are passionate about improving our children’s life chances by giving them a love of learning and a drive to succeed. Each pupil, parent, staff member and governor is a valued member of the school community and we are proud of the warm welcome we extend to all of our visitors.

St Chad’s is a Catholic school, where we share our life in Jesus Christ and where He is at the centre of all that we are and all that we do.  We take pride in the fact that we are members of the St Theresa of Calcutta Multi-Academy, which we joined in September 2021.  We are a single form entry school situated in Newtown, near Birmingham City Centre and take children from the ages of 4 – 11 years.  We are a truly an international school with over 20 languages spoken by our children and staff.  Such as: Tigrinya, Amharic, French, Polish and Lingala to name but a few. We are extremely lucky to have a large amount of green space around the school which helps enhance our children’s learning.

We are privileged to belong to the Cathedral Parish of St Chad’s, where we have very strong links and work closely with our Parish Priest, Monsignor Tim to ensure that our children receive an outstanding Catholic Education. In a caring, Catholic atmosphere,  we encourage our children to develop and mature in the light of the Gospel values with a Christian concern for others. 

We are committed to working closely with our families and they are actively encouraged to be involved in their child’s education and we foster a close co-operation between home and school as we value and build on the experience and knowledge which pupils bring from their home lives.

We have the highest expectations of our children achieving their best in a safe, secure and happy environment. We expect outstanding behaviour, hard work and respect for everyone through a culture of positivity.

If you would like further information you are always welcome to contact us and we would be more than happy to answer any queries or to show you around our school. Please contact the school office to arrange an appointment.
