'Holy Family is a caring, supportive school where everyone is valued and accepted for who they are. Pupils behave well, both in and out of lessons. Staff have established a positive climate for learning. Leaders are skilled at identifying pupils with SEND. They work with staff to ensure that pupils with SEND can learn the curriculum alongside their classmates. Staff provide strong care and support for these pupils.' 'Pupils are polite and kind. They look after each other and show care and consideration towards adults'. 'Pupils enjoy learning and rise to the challenge of the ambitious curriculum which leaders provide. As a result, they achieve well'

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.

PARENT PAY is up and running in our school. 100% 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.
Congratulations to our school community. We have achieved our Wellbeing school Award. Please see the wellbeing area for our full report about our wellbeing provision across the school.
