Description of the school

This small Catholic primary school is situated in the centre of Pershore. The school serves and is adjacent to the Catholic parish of Holy Redeemer. Pupils travel from a wide area mostly by car. The school is the only denominational school in the town, which is otherwise served by first and middle Schools. Fifty-seven per cent of pupils are non-Catholics. The majority of pupils come from White British families. Six and a half percent of the pupils speak English as an additional language. A lower than average number of pupils have learning difficulties and/or disabilities. The school currently has 19 Reception-aged children who are taught in the Early Years Foundation Stage class. The school has an after-school club managed by school governors. School awards include Healthy School Status, Investors in People and Artsmark Gold. The school became an Enquiry School in 2009 to explore how creative teaching and learning can enhance their practice. Staff are also implementing the sustainable schools framework and the site is a ’Breathing Places’ school and has obtained lottery funding to support their eco garden.
