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.

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.
