General Information for Parents

|

St. Anne's & St. Joseph's is a Roman Catholic Voluntary Aided Primary School for boys and girls (4-11) maintained by the Lancashire Education Authority.

The primary purpose of the school is to provide a Catholic Education for the children of St. Anne’s and St. Joseph’s parishes. Strong links exist between home, school and parish. Currently, the 300 + children are taught in 10 classes. Great emphasis is placed on both pupil progress and pastoral care.

Non-Catholic children can apply to become pupils and will be admitted if any spare places are available.

The school places great emphasis on the pastoral care of the children. The school is under the Trusteeship of the Diocese of Salford and is maintained by Lancashire County Council. The school is also served by Local Health Personnel, the School Psychological Service, the Lancashire Schools Support Agency, the County Road Safety Officer and School Liaison Officers from the Police and Fire Service.

Accommodation

The school building is modern and spacious and on a single level. We have a hall, a library, 2 offices, a staffroom, ICT suite, ten teaching bases, resource rooms, an Out of School Club room and a kitchen. Each classroom has access to a sink unit, cloakroom and the playground.

Outside, there are three playground areas which have playground markings to encourage interactive activities. The large infant playground has an activity trail and a story-teller’s chair. The School Council is currently putting a bid together for a trail in the junior yard. The school also has user rights to the playing field of Accrington & Rossendale College and is linked to the facility by a woodland path. There are plans for an outdoor classroom to be developed in the adjoining 5 acre field.

Parents/Carers in Partnership

We welcome Parents/Carers into our school believing we are partners in the education of our children. We say, “These are your children in our care”.

There are many opportunities for Parents/Carers to become involved in the work of the school and to gain a greater understanding of its aims and priorities. Parents’ and grandparents’ time and expertise can be used in many ways in school and is greatly valued. If you are ever able to help, especially on a regular basis, please contact your child’s teacher.

Communication with Parents/Carers

The school communicates with Parents/Carers in various ways by newsletters, questionnaires, interviews and formal or informal evenings. Parents/Carers are invited to class assemblies and Parent’s Evenings each term. Every year Parents/Carers are invited to attend our sports day and open evenings as well as children’s performances, musical and dramatic.
