St Ambrose Catholic Primary School

Grow through the love of Jesus



We decided that we were going to enhance the main entrance of the school with two mosaics. The children have all had some input into the design and have worked on the mosaic itself over the last few weeks. I hope you enjoy the results. One mosaic is on the wall on the way into school and the other is inside the reception area.

Weekly attendance award

Well done to Year 2 who had the best attendance this week.

Attendance rewards 

From September those children who arrive late, even if they get 97% and above, will not have the cinema and other treats. We aim to help you get  the children in school on time as being late has a major impact on their education.  Again you will only receive the £5 token if your attendance is 100% with NO LATES.

Attention all Nursery Parents! 30 hours childcare for working parents.

From September 2018, St Ambrose will be offering 30 hours free childcare for those children whose parents are eligible to claim.

In the event that you are not eligible to claim the 30 hours free childcare, you will still receive 15 hours of free childcare which will be in the form of 5 mornings per week from 9am till 12pm. 

30 hours funded childcare is intended to support working parents with the cost of childcare. It will enable them, where they wish, to return to work or to work additional hours.

St Ambrose also offers a “top up” facility where your child can stay until 3.30pm and the charge for this will be £10 per afternoon session.

They have the whole range of jumpers, cardigans, coats and book bags available with the school logo on it.

For every item purchased, Tesco will donate 5% to our school.

Bishop Mark's visit to school

Today Bishop Mark came to visit our school.  We had a lovely assembly where the children got to ask the Bishop some questions and he met both staff and children throughout the morning.  

Below are some photos of the Bishop with the School council.
