St Anthony's Catholic Primary School

Welcome back to our whole school family. ALL adults MUST wear a face covering whilst on school site. This is to keep our whole school community safe. Thank you for your co-operation.


Welcome to Reception!

Hello! It has been lovely to see all of our children return to school safely this week. We have missed the buzz and the smiles on their faces and I know they have all missed on another too. 

We once again thank you for your support and cooperation during these uncertain times and if your child is unable to attend school we encourage you to take part in home learning via our home learning grid, purple mash and Education City.

As always if you have any worries or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us, we are here to help and support! 

This half term we will be exploring different countries and continents. We will be exploring the culture, music, food and landmarks.

As always our main focus will be PSED, phonics and number.

We follow the floppy phonics programme and are focusing on phase 2 and 3 tricky words.  


We value parent partnership and believe this is key to helping our children reach their full potential. 

Early Essence is the programme we use to track and assess learning within the foundation stage. All children have their own individual profile, please take a look and comment/add your own observations of your children.

 Thank you for your continued support

Mrs Partridge, Mrs Jawnyj and Miss Wilson.


 Please take a minute to look at the newsletter for this half term.
