St. Wulstan's Roman Catholic Primary School

Believe to Achieve: Love God, Love Learning, Love One Another

Welcome to St. Wulstan's R.C. Primary School....

For the latest information about Coronavirus please see our page under Key Information.

Welcome to St. Wulstan’s Roman Catholic Primary School. We are an extremely welcoming and friendly school at the heart of our community in Great Harwood, Lancashire.

 

At St. Wulstan’s, our mission is to be a happy, caring and compassionate Catholic community where each child’s gifts are developed to the full and the foundations for lifelong learning are laid down. With God’s help, we will educate our children to live safely and responsibly, to care for His wonderful creation and to live their lives through the example of Jesus and the values of the Gospel. Our school is named after Saint Wulstan.

 

Lessons are based on an exciting and enriched curriculum that enables the children in our care to become passionate about learning, achieve well and make good progress. The school community has a relentless desire for continuous improvement and to offering the best possible educational opportunities for our children so that every child can achieve their best. The school is well supported by a professionally focused governing body.

Staff are fully committed to providing children with a very broad learning experience, packed with exciting activities, new challenges and long-lasting memories. All staff are role models of positivity, good manners, making the right choices and use the language of learning. Surrounding this, educating our children to be good people, who have a strong sense of moral purpose and a commitment to using their gifts and talents to create peace in our world, and to act compassionately to those in need, is our highest priority.


We value highly our strong relationship with parents and the community. I hope that you will enjoy browsing our web pages and find the information contained in them useful and informative. If you would like to visit the school,  or email head@st-wulstans-greatharwood.lancs.sch.uk you are more than welcome.

Sometimes the real meaning of Christmas gets lost in all the excitement of decorations, cards, presents and Christmas treats so this year the GIFT team are inviting the children and parents to take part in designing and making a Christmas nativity scene at home. This could be a painting, a drawing or even a 3D scene. This is not a competition, just a chance to show everyone what the real meaning of Christmas is and an opportunity for parents/carers/grandparents and children to work together in celebrating the birth of our saviour, Jesus Christ. Work sent in will be displayed around the school so that children from all classes have an opportunity to view it.

Please could all scenes be sent into school by Monday 13th December.
