About St Catherine's Catholic Primary School, Littlehampton

St Catherine's Catholic Primary School is a single form entry school with eight classes occupied by children between the ages of 4 and 11 years. We have a dedicated team of staff working tirelessly together in order to provide our children with quality care and an excellent education.

At the centre of all we do lie the Gospel Values and our Mission Statement is our core driver. We want our children to grow into young people who are loving, kind, forgiving and who know what it is to be good citizens. We strive to grow in them a real thirst for learning and to aspire to be the best that they can be.

Our last Section 48 Inspection was carried out in the Autumn of 2015 and the school was judged to be "OUTSTANDING" in 8 out of 9 areas with Assessment of RE being judged as "GOOD". In December 2018, St Catherine's Catholic Primary School was inspected by Ofsted. The Inspectors judged our school as "REQUIRES IMPROVEMENT". However, in close partnership with the LA and Diocese and with the hard work and dedication of the school team, we believe there has been continued improvement and feel the school is now set to achieve “GOOD”.

We work closely with parents, our local schools and with the other Catholic schools in our Deanery and Diocese. This helps us to share ideas, learn from others and gives us opportunities both as staff and as pupils to work with our peers, developing both professionally and socially.

We have a supportive and committed Board of Governors who monitor and celebrate the work of the school. They encourage developments and improvements within the school and are key partners in our continued improvement.
