English Martyrs Catholic

Primary School

A Learning Community in Christ

School Values

We are a Catholic School and we see it as our vocation, our duty and our privilege to educate the children at English Martyrs to the very best of our ability. We are guided by the example set to us by Jesus, and always aim to be a 'learning community in Christ'.


We offer the best opportunities we can:


  • for each child to fulfill his / her potential
  • to value each child
  • to instill a sense of worth in each child
  • to guard the dignity of each child


In common with all state schools, we present and develop the National Curriculum


We strive for academic progress and achievement for all children


We are passionately concerned with the personal, social and pastoral development of the whole child


In everything we do, we aim to reflect the Gospel values


School Aims


We want to help our children to reach a greater understanding of their Catholic faith


Encourage respect, tolerance, understanding and courtesy towards others.


Let each child develop to their fullest potential spiritually, morally, academically, physically, creatively and socially in order that they make their own unique contribution to society.


Create a climate of excellence, through our happy and stimulating environment, where children are challenged within a balanced and enriched curriculum.


Offer and promote a learning community, where opportunities for all are equal, each child is valued and high expectations are made and celebrated.


Maintain a safe and nurturing culture in which each child grows in self–esteem, self-confidence and self-discipline.


Encourage an understanding of and respect for their environment and their communities locally, nationally and globally




What do our children say?


In February this year, our Year 6 wrote letters to the Early Years children about what we value at English Martyrs and what is important in our school community.  We hope you enjoy reading them!
