Sunday Times ‘State Primary School of the Year  2012’


It gives me great pleasure and enormous pride to inform you that Our Lady & St Werburgh’s has been selected by The Sunday Times as their State Primary School of The Year.
This is absolutely amazing and a great honour as there are approximately 18,000 primary schools in the whole country.
This  is  an  incredible achievement and it is fantastic to have our school recognised in such a way. 
I am grateful to the whole school community, our brilliant children, staff, governors and parents for helping to make this possible.

Sunday Times Press Release



Following a rigorous assessment and evaluation programme, the Governors have been awarded the Governor Mark.   The Governor Mark identifies and acknowledges best practice in school governance, which is a vital part in the effective running of any school. This is a great achievement with approximately only 100 of the 24,000 schools in the country being successful in achieving this high standard.


I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the Governors for their hard work and dedication in gaining this award.



GROUND FORCE: Apprentices have helped to restore a school garden.

Our Lady And St Werburgh's Catholic Primary School, in Clayton, held the official opening of their new garden this week

The project is aimed at teaching pupils about growing vegetables.

The garden was built by apprentices at KMF, who have entered this year's National Apprentice Service's Brathay Apprentice Challenge, a national competition aimed at promoting apprenticeships.

Section 48 R.E. Inspection

We have recently been inspected by the Diocesan  Education Service and have been judged as "outstanding".  The inspection focused particularly on our teaching of the Catholic faith and in developing the children's personal response to their faith.

We are very proud of this report and are extremely thankful to the pupils, parents and teachers for all their hard work, especially Mrs Freckleton and Fr Anton.
