Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome to Dame Catherine Harpur’s School…

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Dame Catherine Harpur’s
School, in particular our first-time visitors who would like to find out a little more about us
and about our vision and values.

We believe that the partnership between parents or carers and the school is vital and we
actively encourage the families to become involved in the life of the school and to be able to
experience what their child is learning on a daily basis. We recognise that the real strength in
our school community comes from working together and understanding how to support each

We are passionate about our parents and children having choices and opportunities and about
listening to their ideas. We believe children should be proud of their achievements, of who
they are as individuals, of their school and their work. We aspire to provide children with the
confidence to explore the opportunities presented to them and develop their aspirations,
hopes and dreams.

Visitors to our school always comment on the welcoming ethos, so please do take the time to
visit us if you can.

Happy browsing!
