Our Lady & St Werburgh’s Catholic Primary School is a one-form entry Catholic primary school in the Archdiocese of Birmingham. Our school is one of a family of 6 local schools including our feeder high school, that collectively form Christ the King Catholic Collegiate.
We cater for children between the ages of 3+ to 11 years and serve the Clayton area of Newcastle-under-Lyme. The number on roll is at present 228.
The school was officially opened in 1967, having been built by the Catholic Community without Government grant to cater for children of the Clayton Parish. The children are mainly from Catholic families from within the parish; however, non-Catholic parents who wish their children to have a Christian education are admitted at the discretion of the Governors, subject to our admissions criteria.
Parents moving into the area or considering sending their children to the school are invited during the term before the child is admitted to visit the child’s future classroom, and meet the staff as part of our induction programme.
The school comprises of eight classrooms, one for each year group, including a Nursery class offering full and part-time places. Our Nursery and Reception classes are our Early Years Foundation Stage; pupils aged 5 – 7 years are taught in Key Stage 1 and pupils aged 7 –11 years are taught in Key Stage 2.
