Holy Family Catholic Primary School

Love one another as I have loved you.

We hope the following pages give you a flavour of our highly successful, welcoming, friendly school serving the children, and families, of the Warton and Freckleton area.

The success which we enjoy is the result of many things.

Firstly, even though we are a fully inclusive school and welcome children from a wide variety of faiths and backgrounds, we are a Catholic School and, as such, have a strong Christian ethos. When we developed our mission statement with the children they felt that it should be, that everyone at Holy Family School should do their best to ‘love and care for each other’. This simple statement encapsulates many of the things which our school develops in our pupils; good behaviour, respect, good manners, tolerance, inclusion, honesty, Gospel values.

At Holy Family we unashamedly put children first. Thus we have a safe, happy environment in which children can strive to do their best at everything they are given the opportunity to do. We listen carefully to our children and allow them to influence our curriculum and their learning as much as possible. We do our best to foster within each child a desire for learning and a desire to make the right choices.

We enjoy a very high level of support from parents. Children get on well at school when parents feel able to support school. At Holy Family we try to achieve this by welcoming parents to school as much as possible to things like assemblies, progress meetings, volunteer work, ‘stay and play’ times.

Finally, we are blessed with an extremely dedicated, hard working staff team who give above and beyond that which is required so that children are treated as individuals who matter; receive the best possible education; enjoy learning at school with a creative, exciting, challenging curriculum; and have the opportunity to take part in a wide range of sporting and extra-curricular activities.

This website can only give a hint of what Holy Family School has to offer – you really do need to visit school to experience the unique ‘Holy Family’ feeling. Please do not hesitate to contact the school to book a visit.

I look forward to meeting you soon.

Holy Family School reopens on Tuesday 1st September for ALL children

Staff are looking forward to seeing the children back in school and we are hoping to return to a new normality whilst keeping everyone safe. We have implemented some changes in line with government advice and produced some guidance for parents and children. If parents could read the children's guidance with their children and help them understand the main changes and the reasons for these. We have tried very hard to keep changes as simple and manageable for everyone.

Breakfast Time and Kidzcare Clubs will reopen on Tuesday 1st September. Unfortunately we cannot allow parents to come into school but just come to the hall entrance and ring the bell and a member of staff will help you.

We say goodbye to our Year 6 Lockdown Leavers. It has been an unusual end to their primary education but we have tried very hard to make their last few weeks very special. This is their group photo which was taken with each pupil standing individually at the front of school and digitally enhanced and put together as a group. They all look amazing. Thank you to Jon Hardman, our superb photographer governor who made this happen for us. We say goodbye and thank you to

Amy, Archie, Annie, Blake, Charles, Daniel, Harry, Hollie, Jack, Lee, Lucy, Paige, Phoebe, Philip, TJ and Vincent. We wish them lots of success at their high schools and we will certainly miss them all in September.

Our new classroom was craned into school on Tuesday. It caused great excitement and was a bit scary to watch it dangling over the top of the school. Here are some fabulous pictures taken by our brilliant governor photographer. 

A message from Mrs Eccles and Miss Barnes and the staff - 

Hi there boys and girls, parents and carers

We have been busy setting up a little Holy Family Values trail in the church grounds. We are hoping that this will get you out in the fresh air, give you some daily exercise and remind you that you are still a part of our school family and we are thinking of you daily. In the Holy Family Church grounds, we have left some decorated pebbles and ornaments for you to find. (See photographs of some below). We wondered if you would like to add to our trail? If so, please decorate a pebble at home or make a decoration suitable for a church yard and surviving the weather, and let’s see how many we can get. It would be a great way of letting your friends know you are thinking of them. We know how creative you can all be…. We do hope that you can focus on our school values, which continue to serve us well in these difficult times. Just in case you are unsure of these…. here is the list…

Loving … Compassionate … Grateful … Generous … Curious … Active … Faith filled … Hopeful …

Truthful … Attentive … learned … and finally … wise.

A message from all the staff to our children and their families.

Science Week has been really fun this week. We had a mad scientist into school on Tuesday and all the classes took part in fun science experiements. See the photos on our class pages. Mrs Eccles, who is our Science Leader, received excellent feedback from our visiting scientist. This is what he said-

"It was a pleasure being at your school today. All the kids and teachers were great! Was a really fab day!And thank you for everything today. You've been such a wonderful help. Really appreciate it."
Well done children - you obviously made a great impression and had lots of fun learning about Science.

Congratulations to Isobel and Hollie who are our school winners in the Blackpool & Fylde Young Seasiders Art Competition. Both pupils visited the exhibition on Monday to see their winning pictures displayed with all the other entries from our school and lots of other schools around Blackpool and the Fylde.

Well done to our swimming team who represented our school in the local schools swimming gala on Wednesday 25th February.  They all did their very best and achieved third place. Their behaviour was brilliant and we were extremely proud of them. Well done to Hollie, Phoebe, Amy, Lucy, Harry, Archie, Daniel, Vincent, Jack B and Sam.

He has celebrated several masses and Liturgical services with us and he is trying hard to learn all the children's names. Please come along to mass on a Saturday (6.45pm) or Sunday (10.45am) where Fr Jim will be pleased to see you. If you want to know more about Fr Jim, follow the link below.

Parents at Holy Family School are so helpful and supportive. We are all part of a team helping to provide the best for the children in our school. See article below.

PARENT PAY is up and running in our school. 82% of parents have now activated their accounts and many have started paying money through it. It will hopefully reduce the amount of cash transactions in school. This will also reduce the amount of trips to the bank to deposit money, allowing Mrs CW more time in the school office.

A big welcome to Father James Allen who has joined our hardworking team at Holy Family. Fr Jim has been with us for about 2 months now and he is a regular visitor into school. He is getting to know the children well and he has celebrated several masses and Liturgical services with us. Please join us for mass on Sundays at Holy Family Church where Fr Jim will be happy to welcome you. If you want to know more about Fr Jim, please follow the link below.

It's official - Holy Family Parents are the very best!!!!

During the summer, our all-weather football pitch was constructed so that our children had an area to play on all year round. Unfortunately, it was not fit for our children to play on as the sand was too thick. On Thursday evening, several of our parents gave up their time to come into school and sweep the pitch to clear all the sand. To the great delight of the children on Friday morning, they were able to use the pitch and play football on it when they arrived into school. Massive thanks to Amelia's dad, Harrison's dad, Tilly's mum and dad, Ava's mum, Noah's dad and William F's dad who all gave up their time to get the pitch accessible for the children. It was very, very kind of you. Here are some pictures that Mrs Holden took showing the hard work put in.
