Teaching & Learning

At Holy Cross Catholic Primary Academy we live our mission statement which says;

 ‘Christ is the centre of our lives, our learning and friendships, in a safe, happy and caring community where all are welcome.’


We have high aspirations and ambitions for our children and there is a driving determination among all staff to ensure that all children reach their full potential. We provide children with a rich breadth of high quality, learning experiences that prepare them for their secondary education and life beyond.

We are a friendly and welcoming community where children learn in a safe and supportive environment. We see parents and carers as partners in developing a child spiritually, morally and socially and believe that good communication between home, school and parish ensures that children make good progress and develop as well-rounded citizens.


At Holy Cross we are committed to high standards in both academic work and social development and also have high expectations for good behaviour. As a Catholic school, we value our distinctive nature and work to nurture these values in our children. We offer a rich and varied curriculum with a vast array of extra-curricular activities which are well supported. We are proud of our achievements and our reputation for being a well-disciplined and caring environment which develops the whole child.
